Design Team Project #1 Featuring Kaisercraft ....

Good morning everyone, today see's the design team kick off the week with a new set of goodies this month using a selection of Kaisercraft products from the Base Coat Collection.

But first we need to choose the Random Comment winner from last month ....

 

No 10 which corresponds with Judith Smith (Poppy Cottage) ... congratulations Judith please email Snazzys with your details.


For my first project I covered this decorative frame from the Fancy Oval Frame Art Parts Set using the 12x12 Concrete cardstock which was applied using Cosmic Shimmer Glue then sanded around the edges. The "Face" image is from Stampers Anonymous Classic #5 collection, again stamped on the above cardstock.



 I've used the clear Flutter stamp also by Kaisercraft using Archival Ink (Jet Black).


then adding some more layers by stamping the Journal Clear Stamp also in this months collection by Kaisercraft.


I then added extra splashes of colour by flicking some Dylusions Spray onto the background (Calypso Teal, White Linen & Black Marble).
 

The quote is also from the Classics #5 collection which I've cut down, coloured the edges using a Distress Marker (Black Soot) and used 3d foam pads to add extra dimension to some of the words.

I'll be back on Wednesday with another project using the Base Coat collection.  Until then ....


To be in with a chance of winning the Random Comment Winner prize simply leave a comment HERE.
