Kraft and pencils

I had such fun colouring up this Old Letter Rose stamp  by Noor! Design.  I thought I would try this on Kraft card and use pencils to colour it up.  I love the result!

I used a ton of pencils, too many to try and list.  If I thought the colour would work …. on it went lol.  I started with white and worked up to a deep red/orange then worked back down to white again.  (Same for the leaves, starting with white and working up to deep green then black then back down to white again).

The metal corner and the antique gold butterfly embellishment got a dose of Frantage embossing powder in shabby white (love this stuff!)

The paper is Prima Botanicals.  The lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts as are the cherry blossoms and 15mm roses.

I have put this card plus a few others in my Etsy Shop
