Katzelkraft project

For my Katzelkraft project this week I've made a card that was inspired by watching a colleague doodle while we were in a meeting together ! Fascinating where your inspiration comes from !

The stamp sets I've used for this project are Wings, Fleurs and Nature. I started by making the background, I stamped with black Archival ink and blended Barn Door and Spiced Marigold DI over the card. I then covered it with Gesso and scraped off the excess. When it was dry I stamped the word nature randomly over it in black Archival ink. The three panels are stamped with black Archival ink and then distressed.

The butterfly is stamped onto acetate and then I've added gems to the centre. The metal frame has been treated with Alcohol ink and then mounted over the text on silicone.

I'm also entering my project into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is 'bling'.

All of the stamps I've used are available exclusively from The Craft Barn in the UK and from Katzelkraft in France.
