Upcycling and Katzelkraft

Happy Saturday to you, Over at the Craft Barn we've been playing with Katzelkraft stamps. Here is my upcycled project, a chocolate box from Christmas..........the box will last longer than the choccies LOL





I painted the box with gesso first to prepare it to take paint, I used Fresco chalk finish guacamole outside and little black dress inside.


The cat is cute and in white shrink plastic, I've used it on the key ring. The chain for the key ring came on a clothes tag. Now I have somewhere to store my glitter pens.

Keep an Eye out because next week on the Craft Barn website there will be a discount (YIPPEE!) on shrink plastic   Just click the link to check it out!!


I made a CAS card with Katzelkraft stamps, this time with a male theme, I love the Old Gent on his bike :0)
I used
Katzelkraft stamps,
Fresco Chalk paints in Guacamole and Little Black Dress,
White Shrink Plastic,
The Craft Barn has more of the stamps used in these projects and more this week, well worth checking out if you have a minute or two. Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon, Gay xx
