Hi all I am Elaine (Ellapu) This blog used to be called Handcrafted by Ellapu but wanted to rebrand to KraftiKards Kreations. I have given up mixed media and am now into making cards. I had not posted since 2019 when I ran 2 challenge blogs, Eclectic Ellapu and Altered Eclectics. There were so many fantastic designers who tirelessly created such beautiful art and I would like to thank them if they ever come across my blog again. I do hope you enjoy my art
Well it is that time of the week again for another fabulous OUTLAWZ Challenge. This week it is to use household packaging on a project and I have used this in the broad sense of the term. I use duct tape around the house and find it has a multitude of uses such as wrapping it around my tummy so I reduce 2 dress sizes....NO only joking so do not try it for yourself LOL.
The recipe for this one is once again quite simple. I covered card with duct tape and the embossed it with the ascension embossing folder. I then painted over it with acrylic paint and wiped it off to give aged effect. I also embossed black card with said folder. I then cut out the shapes and stuck them using foam pads onto the balck card. I placed the black card onto some glitter card to give it a lift..... get it hot air balloon - LIFT! Never mind just ignore me!
I had seen this technique on the net somewhere and for the life of cannot remember where but if it comes to me I will update this post. I did not use a sentiment for this one so that it can be used for a male for any occasion.
Anyway I hope you like this post and please feel free to leave some love if you have any to spare LOL
