Katzelkraft S8/DT

Week 8 already and only 2 weeks to go until the end of this challenge (and Christmas as well of course!). This week's recipes are:
1 A waterfall card
2 A colour combo with a touch of gold
3 A sketch
DT A card inspired by the owner of Katzelkraft Béatrice better known as La Dame Katzele.
I'm starting with the DT card because it was the first idea I had.

Many years ago I attended my first Craft Barn Extravaganza and saw several demos by Béatrice. I was taken by a BG technique on a card she had displayed and she very kindly showed me how she had made it. She signed the back and gave me the sample. It has been pinned on the board near my desk ever since. This is the card:

Of course that Katzelkraft stamp was one of the first (of many) I bought. I have written on the back that Cranberry & Pesto Adirondack inks were used with gold metallic mixative. I used Cranberry and Meadow (I don't have Pesto), my metallic mixative has gone mouldy and I'm waiting for a replacement from Ranger so I used gold acrylic paint. Some parts of the stamp have been highlighted with a white pen and I added some punched snowflakes.



  1. Love the mix of colours on the background, a very pretty festive card.

  2. An absolutely fabulous card, so pretty. How fantastic that you were able to meet Beatrice and be shown how she achieved the background and have the beautiful memento of that day.
