A Cart and a Dog

I DID IT!!!  I'm so excited!!  I've been reading about coloring with pencils on Kraft card stock and kept thinking I couldn't do that/it was going to look horrible/etc......Well, I finally tried it (guess you never know unless you try) and I really like the look of the colors on the Kraft!  Since this is the first time I've done it, I'm hoping I get better now.


The image is a new one ( SU hostess) from the set Summer Afternoon.  The sentiment is from Watercolor Trio.  Simply designed card but think it'll be good as a "mailer" - no ribbon or bulky stuff on here. The DP actually pretty well matches the purple flowers in the cart, but just couldn't get them to jive together in the photo.
I just noticed that it appears that cart it kinda rolling downhill!!  LOL!!  Think I'd better straighten that up before mailing it!

I'll enter this in the challenge at Paper Play Challenges (Back to Kraft Basics)

Thanks for stopping by........and hopefully I'll have another Funny Friday next week!  Hang in there with me on that....I'll get back in the groove soon!

Adorable stamp, Lynn, and your coloring is incredible! You've even inspired me to see if I can color on kraft. Like you, I've avoided it. Love the dp!

Would not have guessed you never colored on Kraft, this is beautiful and love how the colors just pop. I will have to give this a try, I used markers but not pencils. Have a wonderful weekend, hope you got some of the rain, figure anything helps as we get into summer.

Nice job on the pencil coloring!! It looks great on kraft, and would you just take a gander at that HOT HOT HOT designer paper!?! WOW!! I think I ordered that pack because of this design, but the color is even better seeing it used on your card! Nice job, beautiful card!

Karen Howard said...

I've wanted to try this but don't have colored pencils myself! I agree with you, color on kraft looks gorgous as is your coloring! Hugs, Karen

Good for you trying a new technique! I love your results - love that you can actually use white! Nicely done Lady Lynn.

Laura said...

Hi Lynn, First time?? wow you did an awesome Job. I love it. And what an adorable image. TFS

Karen said...

Lynn, your colouring on the Kraft paper is wonderful. Gives it an entirely different feel than the white...rustic. The colours of your flowers fit in very nicely with the paper. I may have to have this stamp set now

FABULOUS Lynn!!!!! Cheryl turned me on to Dorca's blog (have you seen it?) and she colors on Kraft all the time. Amazing!!!

The color has such a different look on Kraft vs white!!

You did great!! Love that background pp too!!

Your coloured pencil-on-kraft coloured panel is stunning Lynn - even if that puppy is heading for a speedy ride!

You have done an amazing job on this! The pencils and kraft is on my list of 'to do' techniques!! A beautiful card!!

gale said...

That coloring looks amazing. I love how it looks on the kraft! I'll have to try it. I'm terrible with colored pencils but maybe it'll look better than when I try it on plain white.

Cheryl said...

Gorgeous! Your coloring is fabulous.

Bonnie said...

I see how the pooch is hanging on tight, but he doesn't look concerned to be going downhill. I've been wanting to try coloring on Kraft too. I see that I really need to put that up on the list. Your card is colored beautifully!
