Inkspirational Colour Challenge - Kraft

Morning everyone!  It's another hot one here today.  We are going over to a friends place today to swim in their pool.  My son is super excited.  He's been counting down the days all week.  LOL.  Anyway, we've got a great colour challenge over at Inkspirational starting today.  Anything goes with Kraft.

I love working with kraft paper. It can change the whole look of your card.  I decided to try colouring with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I love how it turned out.  Take a look...

I stamped my flowers and leaves (STAMPlorations, Dee's Artsy Impressions, Blooming Buds set) in black on my kraft cardstock.  Then I coloured them in with my SN markers (DR5, DR7, DG2, DG4). Then I masked off my flowers and stamped portion of a script stamp (Stampabilities. I think this is a discontinued stamp but any script stamp will do) in tea dye Distress ink, stamping off first to create a subtle look.  I sponged some more tea dye ink around my flowers and stamped some of the flowers lightly around the edges.  I sprayed some heirloom gold Perfect Pearls mist and then removed the mask.  I stamped the sentiment (STAMPlorations, Trendy Feathers set) in walnut stain Distress ink.  Then I attached my kraft panel to my white card base.

I hope you'll join in on the fun and make a krafty card!  Come take a look at the other Ink girls projects too.  They are all just wonderful.  We have a fantastic Guest Designer too.  Bobby from Bits & Pieces.  Go check out her awesome card!

Hope you have a lovely day and thanks for stoping by!

    How clever of you to have a friend with a swimming pool! I need a friend with a yacht ( or a pub!). Have fun in the pool!

  8. Wow! What a stunning card! Your use of color and ink is always beautiful. Seriously, you have a skill Kim! I have been trying to work on a one layer card and I cannot get ink to do anything useful for me. I am more of a paper worker. =)
