Nature with Katzelkraft

 Hi Everyone, I am back with my weekly Katzelkraft post. For this weeks card I am playing along over at Facebook with  Isa  and one of her Tagalong inspirations -  #TAGALONGCOLOUR  combined with  #TAGALONGLIVE04 The theme for the color challenge is complementary colors and the theme for the tagalong is crackle. I hope this qualifies...don't own crackle paste and did not want to invest in one - those things have a tendency to dry out in my house..... I smooshed the background with distress oxide inks - used one of those handy dandy tags from Studio Light - see link below. Stamped the flora and fauna and then stamped the critters again onto scrap paper and cut out the wings. Added them. The stamps I used are from the following sets: Nature and Flowers  - KTZ275     ( FRANCE) Nature and Flowers - KTZ275, Tab Tags  , Crackle background   (USA) Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Katzelkraft inspiration.  Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with:

Guest Designing for the 52CCT Challenge

  Hi Everybody!   I am honored to be guest designing for the current 52CCT challenge - the theme is nativity. Luckily I had one stamp set to fulfill this requirement! It's an ancient one from Paper Smooches. Confirmed my belief, that you should not get rid of stamp sets, because on day you will need them! I stamped the nativity scene onto scrap paper and colored it with Copics. Used a dies (not sure by whom) to cut the rays around it. Took some patterned paper as underlay and stamped the sentiment. Very simple. Perhaps you have a nativity stamp in your stash and need to ink it up! See you at 52CCT hopefully! I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with:
