Katzelkraft - Studio L3 - Simon Says Stamp and Show



Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. A tag to show today for the Katzelkraft blog,  Simon Says Stamp and Show where the challenge this week is to use a Tim Holtz technique and also for Linda's Studio L3 Grungy Monday challenge where the Tim Holtz technique this week is texture fades and distress.

I've used stamps from Vinci Joconde, 'Paris KTZ35', Butterflies 04 and Cage et Chandelier to make the
scene with horse disappearing into the shadows of the trees courtesy of the texture fades and distress technique :). To decorate I made a rosette from inked, spritzed and crumpled printer paper and I dyed some cotton fabric strips to match the colours I used to sponge onto the tag. The filigree photo corner has had the white rub 'n' buff treatment to change it from gold and theres a bit on the edges of the rossette and around the tag too.


The stamps are available at Katzelkraft Stamps in France and in the UK at The Craft Barn.
Have a good day today and thanks as always for your comments, I very much appreciate them..

Chris, your work is beautiful...but this tag with the horse is just AWE INSPIRING!!! I don't think I even get how you did that...but I am sure going to try. How did you get that beautiful blue sky with stars? It kind of makes the whole thing pop.
