I've got some simple colouring on kraft to share with you today.
I'm a massive fan of kraft card, and I especially love colouring with pencils on it, it creates such an organic look.
I started by stamping out the butterfly, twice, once on my card panel, and a second time on a separate piece of kraft card, and heat embossing in white. I then got out my coloured pencils, (I used Crafter's Companion but obviously any would work), and coloured my second butterfly in, using soft pinks with a splash of yellow to help make the colours pop. I stamped out my sentiment, again heat embossing in white, and cut around it. Like I said, I love the organic look and wanted to keep that theme throughout, so wasn't too concerned about perfection. I also cut a piece of vellum to put behind my sentiment for a bit of extra pretty...coz we all need some extra pretty, right?
I then layered all my pieces on top of one another, adding some gold twine behind the whole thing. I wanted my butterfly to really stand of from the card, so added some foam tape behind the wings to really make them stand proud.
I finished with a scattering of clear domed gems as I thought they worked perfect with the pretty simplicity I was aiming for. And there you have it. I love this set, it's really good for all types of colouring, and I especially love the sentiments in it, the fonts are clean and modern and have really sweet simple messages. I hope you like it.
As always, everything I used is linked up below.
See you next week.
