MIM #276 Kraft and colored pencils

Melissa has a video up HERE showing coloring with pencils on Kraft cardstock.
This is for Papertrey MIM and this is what I used:
Fresh Bouquet
Background Basics:  Tin types
Keep it Simple: Praying for you
pattern papers and vellum from PTI 
 Prismacolor Pencils.
Heart Hugs, friends!


  1. Really lovely Colleen...great choice of blossoms and you coloured them up perfectly.

  2. Your colors are so bright and cheerful. Coloring on kraft looks so different from plain white. It is really vibrant and I love the stamp.

  3. Oh my goodness--absolutely gorgeous, Colleen! I've never thought to put a vellum panel under the focal point--LOVE it!

  4. Wow Colleen! Beautiful colors and coloring! gorgeous card!

  5. Such a great job coloring on Kraft! Really sensations Colleen!

  6. Great job with this technique Colleen. I have only done this once (for Darnell's recent NBUS challenge). It's not easy to get shading to give dimension, but you have managed to do a great job with that. Love the design with the mix of patterned papers and torn edge. xx

  7. Looks like we were on the same wavelength this week with using Fresh Bouquet Colleen, and yours turned out FABULOUS! Don't you just love having Melissa as inspiration?! When I grow up I want to be just like her!! But anyway, I love your card and coloring and all your lovely layers too! :0)

  8. Wow....those colors are so beautiful! What an incredible look you created.

  9. What a lovely card. I love the Fresh Bouquet stamps with this technique. You really got your colors to pop on the kraft card stock. Really beautiful.

  10. What a beautiful take on the inspiration card! Love your layers.
