Katzelkraft Twofer

Hi Everyone,
It's time to play along with the Twofer challenge!


I did not want to wait until the last minute again...


As you see, the requirement is pets. Birds can be pets - I had lots of them at some point in my life. Thankfully no more....
The Katzelkraft set is used is called Les Piafs.
 So I settled on making a Fathers Day card - its coming up, as you know. And this bird looks quite dapper with his hat and tie (from  Impression Obsession). I colored him with Inktense pencils,



The branch is by Memory Box and the sentiment is Studio 112.



The second card I stamped and masked and colored with Inktense pencils. The sentiment is by STAMPlorations -pulled out my sewing machine for it. As you can see I also drew some inspiration from Kara - her DT cards are just amazing!

If you feel the urge to buy any Katzelkraft products, you can also order them in the US from those companies: Topflight StampsFrantic Stamper or Lost Coast Designs

Wow ..you have certainly made this 'bird' stamp your own. Your colouring is amazing and yes the Fathers day 'Bird' does look dapper with his hat and tie. Great masking and wonderful vibrant colours on the second one. Stand out cards....both of them x

Can I just say WOW!!!. Think you won the Twofer Challenge with this pair even if you had to pull out your sewing machine to do it. Can't tell you how crazy I am about both of these amazing cards. Brilliant mind of yours to dress up that cardinal for Father's Day.

That's quite the dapper Dad, Cornelia, and your rainbow quartet are fabulous. You do a great job with Inktense pencils.

Liebe Cornelia! Ich bin immer wieder begeistert, was du so zauberst und deine "Twofer"-Projekte mag ich ganz besonders gerne. Auch bei diesen beiden kann ich mich wie üblich nicht für einen Favoriten entscheiden - tolle Karten! ;o) Danke für's Mitmachen bei PINspirational und viel Glück! Happy crafting, Maike

Rainbow piafs (sparrows in English!), Cornelia ... how brilliant in their saturated plumage ... and how suave is that stylish chap all dressed up in his hat and tie for a night on the town ... so much fun! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)

What a terrific Father's Day card! Love all the white space on this card, and your combination of wonderful bird image, especially with that jaunty looking hat and sentiment. Terrific! Those Inktense pencils are so vivid. Love the second card for your Two'fer challenge just as much. Awesome cards! Thanks so much for sharing with us at this week's Masculine "Anything Goes" challenge at Watercooler Wednesday.
