I would also like to welcome my two new followers - its a long time since some new people started following and I really do appreciate it - so sorry that I'm unable to thankyou by adding your names - I can't figure out quite how to do that! But thankyou!
Today I have my effort in using kraft card to share with you. I always fancied colouring in pencil on Kraft so that was the main thrust of my make - although I have also used kraft card as the main background too. The stamp I have coloured is from Sheena douglass - I was keeping this stamp for shaun's birthday this year - but I have used it instead to make a card for a cardswap I am involved with. He would have loved this image.
I stamped the image in momento onto Kraft card then coloured the image in with spectrum noir pencils. I cut the image with a spellbinders die then coloured the outer part using distress marker. The background was a piece of Kraft card that I embossed with a crafters companion folder then swiped with sepia archival. finally I added distress inks (mermaid lagoon and ripe persimmon) to the background.
The other diecuts are from memory box. The sentiment is from Chocolate baroque.
I'm pretty pleased with this - hope you like it too!
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
I was asked by sue of sue's crafty corner to show my make from coffee pot yesterday - here it is!
I love these colours - not sure whether I prefer this one or the other one!!
Hope you have a good wednesday.
