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
I wanted to do something other than a box today and guess what??? I ended up doing yet another tag. I really need to get past them lol!
I wanted a steam punk theme. I cut out some chipboard and painted it in cream acylic paint. I then sponged over with brushed corduroy.
I used a creative expressions stamp from the timekeeper set a well under used set which I forgot about lol. I embossed some black card using a time embossing folder, painted in black acrylic and rubbed over with spanish gold and light gold to give metallic effect. I used the same technique on cog die cut and wooden cogs. I used a couple of TH game spinners for clock hands on one of the cogs.
At the top of the tag I used a wooden pocket watch and heavily layed down crackle accents on the face...The metal clock face came from my stash I made the other using a bottle top, cut out and epoxy. the chain came from an old necklace. oriinally this was silver but I roughed it up using spanish gold rub. I layed this from the clocks and around the cogs. The sentiment 'Inspire' is also wooden.
Thanks for taking the time to drop by today and I hope you will continue visiting.
Happy Weekend to all of you
