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.
