Katzelkraft - Studio L3 - Simon Says Stamp and Show - Gingersnap Creations


Hi everyone, I hope you're all well today. It's my turn on the Katzelkraft blog today and I've made a card using the beautiful Art Deco lady from the Art Deco stamp plate and a corner flourish from the Art Nouveau Set.

I've used Tim Holtz's colourful layered fragments technique for the centre piece as that's the challenge on lovely Linda's Compendium of Curiosities challenge this week and I've also used some glittered polka dot vellum so that I can enter the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge of polka dots. My blog friend Kim made a superb bag for her i-pod from grunge paper for her DT project on there this week, very inspirational as always, I loved it. I'm also entering the Gingersnap Creations 'once in a blue moon' challenge where you can choose a theme from several by the DT members which I think is a lovely idea and I've chosen  Jules theme which is to stamp on acrylic with permanent ink.

Enjoy your day and thank you as always for your lovely comments, always very much appreciated.

Chris, I love your approach to this challenge! The Art Deco lady is just beautiful, and the way you designed the card around her is brilliant. I love the layout and the lovely red and white with just that splash of cool blue and green inside the Fragment. Awesome job!
