Design Team Project #3 ... London To Paris

Happy Saturday everyone, hope you are all enjoying the weekend so far. Today I'm back with my final project of the week featuring the Base Coat Collection from Kaisercraft.


In conjunction with some Tim Holtz/Studio 490/Ranger goodies also available at Snazzy's. I'm not normally a "Green" person but these weathered shabby papers are lush. I started out by painting this Studio 490 Art Parts Five Panel Frame using Distress Paints (Mowed Lawn) then some (Bundled Sage) to tone it down a bit. I then added some Walnut Stain Distress Ink around the edges. Next I cut the "Weathered 12x12" cardstock to size. Using Archival Ink (Sepia), I then stamped the "Chicken Wire" design from Tim Holtz Mixed Media Set randonmly over the background. For the next layer of stamping I used Archival Ink (Jet Black) to stamp the "Collage" design from Tim Holtz Paris Memoir set.


I stamped further images from Tim Holtz Paris Memoir & London Sights stamp sets onto the "Distressed 12x12" cardstock from the Base Coat collection. The word "Journey" is from the Secret Admirer Definitions Clear Stamp Set from Kaisercraft.


And finally some more stamping on the outer panel and my favourite Ideaology embellies .... Hitch Fastners.

Don't forget to leave a comment HERE to be in with a chance of winning a Snazzy prize.  Lesley is up next on Monday with the most stinkin cool project featuring the Base Coat Collection.

Until next time ....
