Bea's not so subtle challenge: For Katzelkraft.

As most of you know, I am more of an "altered Art" artist, than a stamper; so when Bea, at Katzelkraft, brought out some new Christmas stamps, I said " I dont think I would use these".
I think Bea saw this as a bit of a challenge waiting to happen so she sent them anyway with a note attached, simply saying...
"Yes you can. lol x"Hehe... ( I love Bea, she makes me giggle) Sooooooo, I have taken the challenge and made some VERY simple dinner table place cards and a Christmas card. I have to say, I often buy christmas cards with this sort of long thin santa and snowmen. I love the style of them. I'm just not very proficient at getting the look right, for myself. lol.

The little place cards also make nice gift tags too. I cut the tops of the images out with a craft knife so that they stuck out the top when I folded the card in half. I have also completely covered the images in glitter, but not sure you can tell from the photos. they are very twinkly (as am I now).Customers in the UK can buy Katzelkraft stamps directly from "The Craft Barn"

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...
