Katzelkraft DT - Studio L3 - Simon Says Stamp and Show
Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend and a good start to the week. It's my day on the Katzelkraft blog today and I've made a card in a collage style of stamping with the beautiful KTZ85 Chandalier plate.
I started off with white card and used TH's distress misting masks technique over a leaf vine mask which means I can enter my card into lovely Linda's challenge at Studio L3 and also as luck would have it this week the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show is masking so I'm entering that too :D Both of these challenges are always a pleasure to join in with, gorgeous inspiration from Linda at Studio L3 and all the entrants there and from all the DT members at SSSS and I've found a lot of interesting blogs and inspirational art by entering them, I'm really enjoying them both.
I've stamped the scrollwork from the stamp set at the top and then the chandalier to dangle from it also stamping the text stamp over the entire piece. To get some light and dark text I stamped off the ink first on some scrap paper except for the last time in the bottom left corner.
Bottom and right edges were painted with black soot crackle paint, edges were sponged with black soot distress ink and to decorate I added lots of silver pearl pen dots, two decorative metal corners and these and the crackle paint were highlighted with white rub-n-buff.
Thanks as always for your lovely comments which I appreciate very much.
