Coloured on Kraft | Vintage Belated Birthday ft. Lawn Fawn "Gleeful Gardens"
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
Today I have another card for the Coloured on Kraft series. I'm using new pencils today and while I haven't done a review of these yet, there is definitely one coming soon.
The pencils I'm using today are the Black Widow and Scorpion sets, at first I was a little put off as they aren't as vibrant on the kraft as the Prismacolor Premier pencils that I typically use, but as I worked through this piece, I found that I really liked the "vintage" look that they gave.
To begin, I cut down a panel of 65lb kraft cardstock by Recollections and masked off the bottom. I then stamped the images and greeting from Lawn Fawn's "Gleeful Gardens" using CTMH Cashmere ink.
I coloured the images with the Black Widow and Scorpion Pencils. I also used them to create my own grass to ground the scene and the dirt to fill in the bottom.
I tied a piece of soft blue baker's twine around the top below the greeting, and adhered my panel to the front of a standard A2 sized card base.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
