Frosty Christmas for Katzelkraft

Morning everyone and welcome. Today I have my weekly post for Katzelkraft using the fabulous Geometric Ornament.
I have opted for some frosty blues and whites today beginning with the background I applied Broken China Distress Ink over the Stars Layering stencil and added shading to the edges. I then added a second layer with subtle background stamping using Tim Holtz text background stamp from the Classics 9 stamp set.
I then took a further piece of white card, mixed Salty Ocean reinker to Wendy Vecchi's Crackled Texture Paste and applied over the Stars Layering Stencil, I love the texture this gives to the background. Shading has also been added to the edges of the card with Broken China Distress Ink.
I inked the Geometric Ornament with Forget-Me-Not and touches of Potting Soil Archival Inks and stamped onto white card, I repeated this for a second stamping and then cut both baubles out and added to the background of the card. Natural twine has been added to the top of each bauble along with pewter charms coloured with Alcohol Inks.
I applied Broken China ink over the CHRISTMAS wording on the Christmas Layering stencil, cut out the wording and then added to the bottom of the card.
 I love the subtle crackle on the background stars, this adds a wonderful tactile feel to the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
