Pencils On Kraft

Hi there everyone and happy Thursday! Lydia here with you today.

I have been playing with kraft card today, I just look the soft, rustic look that it gives.

To mix things up a little I stamped my images in white pigment ink, this is a great alternative to back ink and it works so well on kraft card. The image I used is from Altenew 'Best Mom' and I stamped this twice going down my card blank.

I coloured my images using coloured pencils, I find that coloured pencils give a gorgeous vibrant look on the kraft card.

For the sentiment I used the coordinating die set for Altenew 'Majestic Bloom' . I die cut the sentiment and added it on top of some vellum to make it stand out more.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll see you again next week!

Hugs, Lydia xxx
