Katzelkraft February Challenge

Sorry it's a rubbish pic. The challenge on the Katzelkraft forum is to make a card or tag with an element that sticks out of the confines of the card/tag (it sounds so much better in French). I decided to combine this with the Tim Holtz tattered floral challenge.
The base is black card with Katzelkraft's wood background stamp and Brilliance pearlescent orchid(have you tried the Brilliance pearlescent colours on black?). I cut a full set of flowers from Tim Holtz's tattered flowers die in pink card, black music printed card, vellum and Black Magic pink Core'dinations. The pink flowers were edged with spun sugar and worn lipstick DIs, the vellum was embossed with a stained glass effect folder and the black core'dinations were embossed with a swiss dots folder and sanded to reveal the pink core. All the flowers were curled or shaped and then I mixed the different elements up to make the flowers. For the stylised stem I cut a flourish from Tim Holtz's elegant flourishes and coloured it with Brilliance pearlescent lime. The tiny flowers are from a retro punch. The tag was edged with a Uni Posca pen and I added some pink organza ribbon stamped with the word bloom in Stazon cactus green.


  1. A stunning tag that really pops:) Love the Brilliance Pearlescent inks - just don't have enough of them yet!
