CASE-ing Christmas: Coloring on Kraft


Hi, friends!  I'm back AGAIN today with another post.  I know, so much happens on the first of the month here! ;)  This post is to share our new challenge at CASE-ing Christmas!  We're using a past card of mine for our inspiration this time around...come and see it...


This card was made by me at the beginning of 2014 and was my first experience with coloring white on kraft as well as with my improved photo editing skills. ;)  They aren't perfect, but they've come a LONG way!  I decided to stick with the birds and kraft.  Take a peek at my CASE...


This time I used stamps from Sweet Stamps.  This is a fun two stamp set and I love the detail in this gorgeous image!  I used a blender pen and white craft ink to color the white and Sakura glitter gel pens to add sparkle and color.



The bottom was gussied up with a border punch and some black rhinestones.  I also added the sentiment on some white card to help it POP more and give more interest to the final product.


I love both of these cards!  I think it's so fun to color on kraft and will be experimenting with other mediums soon!  What do you think?  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!


Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends!  I appreciate your visits and sweet comments, and I'm sorry when I'm unable to return the favor.  School is almost over, so I'll be able to comment more!  I hope you come and join us at CASE-ing Christmas, and that you take some time to leave some love with the other fabulous gals on this DT, too!  Until next time, HUGS and MERRY stamping! :)
