Katzelkraft - Go Ahead, Make My Day!

  Hi Everyone, I am back with my weekly Katzelkraft post. I had to pull out that chess set again - It just is so much fun to play with! I decided to add some weird Zebras to my board, LOL! I first stamped the Zebra with the sweater and masked it. I then added the chess pieces and the board. I stamped the bowling pin Zebra onto scrap paper, colored the Zebras with alcohol ink markers and cut it out. I extended the chess board a bit. Sponged the background (masking the "sun").  I heat embossed the sentiment and added it to the card.  The stamps I used are from the following set: Le Gambit du Roi - KTZ279,  Les Jungles  - KTZ168, Les Quilles - KTZ233,  Whatchamacallit  - KTZ276   ( FRANCE)  The King's Gambit  - KTZ279,  Jungle Animals  - KTZ168, Les Quilles - KTZ233,  Whatchamacallit  - KTZ276   (USA) Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Katzelkraft inspiration.  Thanks for visiting!

Katzelkraft - Playing with Shadows

  Hi Everyone, I am back with my weekly Katzelkraft post. Today I used one of the older stamps. Its actually a set of three Kois, but I cut it apart and used only one of them. I first stamped the Koi onto scrap paper, colored it and cut it out. I then stamped the shadow Koi onto blue card stock with the little bit of ink that was left on my stamp and colored it in grey. I used the  Ripped Fishnet stencil  for Visible Image stamps for my background. Glued the cut out Koi onto the card. Stamped the sentiment. Love that shadow effect! The stamps I used are from the following sets: Koi   - KTZ221 ,  Enjoy Quotes  - KTZ291   ( FRANCE) Koi Fish   - KTZ221,  Enjoy Quotes  - KTZ291  (USA) Hope you liked this - I'll be back next Wednesday with more Katzelkraft inspiration.  Thanks for visiting!
