Kraft & Twine Time!

The fortnightly challenge continues this week at Frilly & Funkie with the Funkies. Our host, Linda Coughlin, of the Funkie Junkie, wants to see Kraft & Twine. Frilly or Funkie, from kraft cardstock to recycled corrugated cardboard, let's see how creative you can be. You still have a week left to upload your projects to be eligible to win a gift certificate to the Funkie Junkie Boutique. If you need a little inspiration, please visit the other Designer's blogs.

For my card/tag, I decided to do another project for Father's Day. This one is loaded with texture...embossing, repurposed packaging, wood, metal, and twine. It's the ultimate 'tool man' card. I can just hear "o ah hah hah" every time I look at it. It even has a little envelope to tuck a gift card in.
 
I am also submitting this to some manly sized challenges. My Mojo Monthly's challenge is "Man Up", The Stamp Man's Challenge is "Make It For A Man", Simon Says Stamp & Show's challenge is "Show Texture", and the Compendium Of Curiosities II Challenge is "Repurposed Packaging". I have also been introduced to two new challenges by Chris, Art With No Boundaries, where the challenge is "Anything Goes", and Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Invent, for "Heavy Metal".

Supplies:


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!

  1. Whoa! How cool is that???!!! LOVE the metal behind the corrugated card! PS You might want to change 'illegible' to 'eligible', we all know what you meant, but as a member of the spelling police, it's my duty to ensure you're informed. :))))

  12. Wow, wow, wow!!! Anita, I am totally in love with this piece. What fantastic metal work you have done. Really cool work with the black alcohol ink on the foil and the way you have fastened that rusty sign - the spiral wire pieces - what a sensational look that is!
