DT Project 2 by Lesley Featuring Kaisercraft

Hello again everyone,

For my second project this month I made a simple card and it really is simple to do with this gorgeous Kaisercraft Vintage Timeless Paperpad.

First of all I trimmed one of the paper designs to cover the front of a 6" x 6" card base and dry brushed a little Picket Fence Distress Stain over the top left corner. I then distressed the edges with Iced Spruce (one of the limited edition DIs) Distress Ink and used the same ink to randomly stamp the flourish all over (this stamp is one from my stash). I adhered this to my card base.

I then stamped the lovely frame from the Duchess Collection Kaisercraft clear stamps onto the ledger page paper from the Kaisercraft pad with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with detail gold embossing powder before cutting it out. I stamped the sentiment (again from my stamp stash) with Versafine Black Onyx ink and then positioned the frame on my card using 3d foam pads. I then attached a metal butterfly which is from my stash of dismantled cheap jewellery.

Finally I cut another butterfly from the paperpad, enhanced the colours with Coloursoft pencils and attached it to my card just by the body so the wings could lift.

Pop back to see us again on Friday when I will have my final offering for November to show you.
