First Time with Kraft

Hello All,

Well as you may have gathered from the title, this is my first time using kraft....I always admire how you fabulous crafters use it, but I had not yet had a go myself....I tried using pencils but I don't have prisma ones, and so the ones I had were just unable to colour on the Kraft, so I stuck with using copics, and I think It worked ok. I have added some papers from that scrap pile of mine! they are "K&Co - Amy Butler" papers.

This is a simple card, I coloured the image quickly, but it was one of those cards that I kept pulling apart and putting back it seemed to take forever to get nowhere!!! I like the way the image turned out, but I am not keen on the overall card!

This is my entry for:

Fab&Funky - Kraft, Lime & Pink

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls

  17. Can't see anything wrong with the overall look of the card Juls, in fact quite the opposite. Its absolutely brilliant, love how the copics took to the kraft paper and the colour scheme is so perfect with it.

  18. Hi Juls - I seem to have lost my last comment so I'll try again. Never having seen any of this Kraft stuff anywhere I really don't know what it's like but you seem to have coloured this image on it perfectly. I'm glad you persevered with the card as it's fab and funky.
