Getting Sassy With Kraft
I hope you have had a really good weekend. I am really loving the look of Prisma pencils on Kraft at the mo ..... however I don't have any, they are on my wishlist though ... having had a quick look on the old tinternet to look at prices I think they will have to remain on my wish list a little longer .... So I thought I would try and achieve the look using what I have.
I tried with some normal pencils I have, but they didn't work, they were too scratchy and it didn't take the colour ...... So I have created this look using water colour pencils as they are a little softer ...... I think it turned out ok, I will be interested to see what you all think.
The Base card is from "Kanban" .... It was from a kit that my Auntie bought me last year, but I never really used as It was really difficult to colour match with anything, but I think it works quite well with the Kraft, and the stripy paper is from my scraps .... I have added some gold stitching and then created my own flower using some of the left over Kraft and my x cut punch.
This is my entry for:
Crafty Creations - In Stitches
Anything Goes - Make your own embellishment (the flower)
Lets Ink It Up - Die Cuts/Punches (I have used a punch to create the rounded corners, and the flower.
Thanks for looking
