Coloring on Kraft

 The laundry, dishes and grocery shopping are done so I figured I deserved to treat playing a bit in my craft room!  I tried coloring with colored pencils on kraft cardstock with these whimsy flowers from Simon Says Stamp (Watercolor Friendly Flowers set).  My outlining could use some work, but this was a fun technique!  The sentiment is from Verve and brick embossing folder is Taylored Expressions.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:


  1. This is really pretty. Wonderful coloring.

  2. So glad that you spent your treat time on this fabulous card! The brick wall embossing is a great contrast for those bright flowers. I'd never have guessed you'd used colouring pencils on them, so they're so vibrant and the white outline really makes them pop. Thanks so much for joining us at As You See It.

  3. Wow! Completely caught me eye in the card line up!!! Fabulous coloring!

  4. This is very pretty! Love the coloring on kraft and the white outlines really make them pop! Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!

  6. The bright flowers on the kraft background are so gorgeous, Kathy. I love the design layout and the texture of the brick. Thanks for sharing your card at Just Us Girls.
