Katzelkraft Challenge - Gesso

It's the first of the month which means it is time for our next challenge with Katzelkraft and this time around our challenge is to use Gesso.
I used Gesso in the background of my card applying it through Tim Holtz layering stencil, applying Gesso through the stencil with a piece of Cut 'n' Dry Foam. I also applied Gesso around the edges of my cards. I love the combination of the Gesso set against the kraft card.
I stamped the Christmas Tree from the Rois Mages KTZ61 stamp set onto white card with Potting Soil Archival Ink and then applied Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges. I then matted the stamped piece onto a piece of card again coloured with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I added further stars using the layering stencil and a touch of background stamping. I also used Tim Holtz on the edge die to add stars down one side which were coloured with Vintage Photo Distress Ink adding touches of background stamping to the background. I also spritzed the background and the stars with Biscotti Perfect Pearls to add a touch of shimmer.
To complete my design I applied Gesso through Tim Holtz Christmas stencil to add the CHRISTMAS wording to the bottom of my card. I also included a rusty star with added Remnant Rub for a further layer of interest.

This card is rustic meets elegant! A beautiful combination and I couldn't agree more, I always think that Gesso looks so lovely paired with Kraft.

Absolutely fab Tracy, love the colours and layout, and the gesso round the edges just softens it so much. xx
