SO SPECIAL

I am absolutely thrilled to have been invited to join the Katzelkraft Design Team. Katzelkraft is a fabulous French company who have some wonderful stamp images. I hope you will join me in this new venture.
For my first creation I have used the fabulous quirky SO SPECIAL plate, I love this image. The background has been created using Weathered  Wood Distress Ink and then flicked with water. I have also used the background stamps from this plate to add further subtle stamping to the background.
I have added circles using an old lid and white acrylic paint along with a few scratch lines using the edge of an old credit card. The focal image has been stamped with Watering Can Archival Ink.
I have also added pieces of die cut Lattice to add further interest.
For a touch of dimension I have also incuded a monocle adding the face of the focal image behind. I have also repeat stamped the So Special sentiment and added to the edge of my design.
I hope you have enjoyed my first design. There is some fabulous artwork from my fellow team members on the Katzelkraft Blog, why not pop over and take a look. Katzelkraft also deliver to the UK and you can find their shop HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Congratulations Tracy! This is great news. And such a FUN piece for your first design for Katzelkraft. Seriously love the repeated images. And the fact that you did it a monochromatic palette really focuses your eye on the images. Great job!!! -- Mary Elizabeth
