A card for a man !

For my Katzelkraft DT project this time I've used the Transportation and the Alphabet Corrupt sets.


I started with the background and stamped the brickwork stamp with Versamark and then used my Pan Pastels over the top. I stamped the word 'Time' using the Alphabet Corrupt set. The main image was stamped on a piece left over from the background and then cut out using a deckle edged Nestability. The centre pieces are from an old book and the top layer has been flicked with bleach.

The metal pieces have been made using a Ten Second Studio mould and I've then used black acrylic paint over them. The words are all stamped onto Kraft card stock and attached together with an eyelet.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

All of the stamps I've used are available exclusively from The Craft Barn in the UK and from Katzlekraft in France.

  19. I really do not know what to say about this - it is beyond fantastic.
    I was drawn from the entries on CCC by the word "Time" as I love all things to do with that topic but when I got here my jaw dropped. This is absolutely a work of art and showcases your talent.
    Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet x
