I am back with my weekly Katzelkraft post.
I am always on the lookout for new ideas for my DT posts. This time it came in in form of the Male Room challenge where the current theme is "anything but a card" and the guest designer A.Rose made a charming bookmark to go along with a book. So I figured I "steal" this idea......
I am reading this fascinating book right now - "Never Home Alone" by Rob Dunn, who explores the natural wilderness in our homes, which is mostly hidden from our eyes, but includes a myriad of bacteria, fungi and small critters. Its an easy read and if you are looking for a good book to read I can highly recommend it (no affiliations with the author or amazon).
Of course I had to use my Katzelkraft insects for this - the mushroom is also Katzelkraft. I die cut myself a strip of card stock, sponged with distress inks and stamped. I colored with water brush pens and markers. Used bleach to get the white accents back. But water does pretty well, too as the inks are water reactive.
Die cut a bigger strip of beige paper as a frame and to add more stability. I am thinking of laminating it - love how it came out.
The stamps I used are from the following sets:
Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Katzelkraft inspiration.
