KTZ Blog Challenge - February
On the Katzelkraft blog this month the challenge is to use your favourite technique and your favourite Katzelkraft stamp - a tough choice! One of my favourite techniques at the moment is to use Brushos to make a background so I started with rose red, lime green and yellow ochre and spritzed the card with water. I die cut a circle from this, added the chicken wire stamp (KTZ 96) and stamped the birds (KTZ 41.03) in archival sepia onto the circle and onto some scrap card. I coloured the scrap card birds with coloursoft pencils and cut them out. They were mounted onto the circle and the circle was mounted onto a Marianne scalloped circle die.
Another favourite technique is using stencils so I randomly added some shabby shutters and festive berries DI through some stencils onto a cream card blank. I then stamped some small dots (KTZ 130) in Impress lemon yellow and the text from KTZ 123 (which has to be my favourite and most used KTZ stamp) in Brilliance starlite black. I brushed shabby shutters around the edges and lightly over the entire card. The central image was stuck on and I added a Marianne die cut leaf painted lime green with Brusho.
