Color on Kraft

Hi and welcome back to the second Flower Challenge challenge.  This month we're looking for a floral card for an occasion.


I am in need of a birthday card so I came up with this card, which features Prismacolor coloring on Kraft.


I used my favorite Delicate Pretty Poppies set by MFT and white embossed onto a kraft panel before coloring with my Prismacolor pencils.  The sentiment was die-cut from white and kraft and layered together.


Thanks for visiting.  The DT have some gorgeous floral beauties to inspire you so be sure to check them out.

I'm linking this up to the CAS challenge at Little Tangles as well.

Products used:

Stamps:  Delicate Pretty Poppies (MFT), Celebrate (Neat & Tangled)
Ink:  Versamark, Versafine Onyx Black
Cardstock:  White, Black, Desert Storm
Dies:  Celebrate (N&T)
Accessories:  Prismacolor Pencils, Stitched Rectangles (Lil Inkers)

Cheers
Karren

It's absolutely stunning Karren. I love the look of pencils on kraft, especially with a white embossed image. It really pops from the card, I must try this with my new pencils :). And the greeting is the perfect size and placement. Gorgeous card!
