Tags for Katzelkraft and Alter It Monthly.

Please click on photo to enlarge (shows up the glitter better too lol)
I made this quick set of tags today using my new Arbres stamps from Katzelkraft. very simply done but so pretty. I did some with a gradient effect with chalk inks starting with snowy white at the bottom and working up to midnight blue... some just two tone white and sky blue and some just a highlight of blue on the edges.
I stamped these pretty little christmas trees (or / and snowflakes) on in permanent ink then using a fine paint brush and some slightly thinned down glue i highlighted areas and sprinkled them with clear crystal fine glitter. You cant see the full effect in the photo but they are very very frosty and twinkly. I attached some crystal like leaf effect trim to the bottom of some and punched decorative corners in others.
As they are trees they also fit the theme over at Alter It Monthly this month. there is a fab goody box being offered up by Calico Crafts to a winner chosen by random number generator. so all you have to do is be in it to win it.

Stamps available from Katzelkraft and also from the Craft Barn in the UK.

More steam-“plunked” toy guns. And a cyber man.

These started out as brightly coloured water pistols. I still give them a light sanding because it’s hard to get paints etc to clin...
