Kraft, Gesso, and Kindness


Can you believe that we are already on Little Tangles Challenge #10?

This was a fun one for me, I am a big fan of kraft.


For this card I used the Kindness Matters set.

First I cut the kraft panel for the card and added gesso, heavier at the bottom of the piece and more watered down towards the top.

Once it was dry I stamped my sentiment, coloring the heart in with a Stamper's Big Brush pen.

I stamped the border from Kindness Matters on another piece of kraft painted with gesso.  The little hearts were colored in, fussy cut, and adhered to the card.

Now it's your turn.  We'd love to see your kraft creations.  You don't need to use Neat & Tangled stamps, but we do love seeing them, and there are some free digis available here

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink - Kraft cardstock
Stamps:  Neat & Tangled - Kindness Matters
Ink:  Memento - Tuxedo Black
Other:  Claudine Hellmuth - Gesso; Faber Castell - Red Stamper's Big Brush Pen; Tombow - Mono Adhesive
