K for Krafty

 Morning all.  We are up to the letter K over at The Alphabet Challenge and K is for Kraft.  We had a Kraft challenge a short while ago on one of the other blogs so I had to think a bit about this one.  I have some really pretty kraft papers so I started out by thinking about them.  I chose a pretty floral pattern that was just black print on a kraft background.  It was pretty - pretty boring if I am honest.  It needed livening up a bit.  Time to crack out the inktense pencils again.  I wasn't sure how the paper would take the colour or the water that I added to blend the pigment.  I started with just one flower and a few leaves.  Then I got bored so 'spotlight technique' it is!

I popped a black frame around it, just in case you didn't know what I was trying to highlight.  After that I just needed a little sentiment panel.  I did splash some shimmer pen over the main image and that's about it.

OK, now it's your turn.  Let's see how krafty you really are.

Thanks for reading.
