Challenge The Stamp Man - 'embellish it"

This is something very different to what I normally make.
I tried doing some metal-art. I made about 4 cards from a sheet I did. Don't know whether I will be doing more, I might, as I do like to doodle into the metal.


I am entering this in the challenge on The Stamp Man which is 'embellish it'.

Me again on the Katzelkraft website today!

As Jolande is in America at the moment -  yessss, at the CHA - I promised to post for her today!
So, here I am again with a Katzelkraft inspired creation!!
This is the cover of a small notebook, about 10 x 10 centimeters.

A close up of the beautiful dragonfly stamp, it's one of my favorite Katzelkraft stamps!
I made the background a while ago!
I stamped with gesso on watercolor paper, and sprayed it with colorwash straight away, while still wet. Pssst....  The gesso stamped image isn't a Katzelkraft stamp, but I do like the effect! Beatrice, I need a stamp with big letters!! LOL


I am entering this in the challenge on Simon Says Stamp - anything goes!
and I am entering this piece in the challenge on MMM as well, which is BUTTERFLIES AND/OR DRAGONFLIES
The dragonfly is from the wings sheet!
Have a nice day!

Katzelkraft "Véhicule" tag

I might just speak french one day, being on the Design Team for
Katzelkraft. LOL
Most of the times I don't understand a word on the DT Facebook page.
Luckily I am not the only one....
I just assume that when other DT members post a french message, I
don't need to know what it says... hehe

This transportation set of stamps is just my thing, didn't expect that
though LOL

I stamped the brick wall with gesso. and with some distressi inks.
I started with a piece of scrapbookpaper, although you wouldn't
recognize it after all the distressing etc.
Hope you like it!
This is my DT-piece in the new challenge on Fashionable Stamping challenges. - 'Make it a guy thing'. This could be a card for your loved one especially with Valentine’s Day looming, birthday card, tag, an altered item …COME JOIN US! There's also a prize every time... from Cottage Crafts.

I am also entering this in the challenge on SSS, which is Show a Songtitle,

this is the song:

In een rijtuigie, in een rijtuigie
    In een rijtuigie reden we naar Vinkeveen
    Op een dag in maart, zo kalm en bedaard
    En maar schommelen en maar kijken naar de kont van het paard
    In een rijtuigie, in een rijtuigie
    In een rijtuigie helemaal naar Vinkeveen

...and on Lily Pad Cards there is a new monthly challenge -this time it is 'patterned paper'!...

Card I made from an ugly Doodle Unleashed page

I was really frustrated, so stopped before I started doodling.
The colors were so dull, and I decided to start over, later on. So I cut it up in pieces.
You can see what I did with it on a card. There's more to come.
