Very happy to be back using Katzelkraft stamps in my altered art and mixed media as part of their design team. its been 2 or 3 years since I was last in the team.
those of you who know me, would have been able to guess which stamp set I would start with. and it was a 50:50 between the Egypt set or the Da Vince stamps.
this time around Egypt won the day. You will find them HERE:
All Stamps are from Katzelkraft who are a French company (with very very reasonable shipping cost throughout Europe).
And just as a little journey back in time, here are some of the things I made in the past using the stamps.

Hopefully its scary enough but fun enough at the same time.
And for my DecoArt friends, here is a basic tutorial on how the plaque was made.
set these aside to dry.
I printed off and cut out a couple of pumpkins. using decoupage medium I stuck them to card and let them dry.
glue everything into place. there you have it.
