Evening everyone. I have one more card to share with you guys from the OCC Holiday Workshop. On day 6, which was a bonus day, they focused on coloring. Those who know me, know I love to color. But what I had not tried yet was coloring on kraft paper. I absolutely love the look. Debby Hughes did a lovely card with a poinsettia colored with Prismacolors on kraft. I had to give it a try.
I loved this little stamp from Lili of the Valley. They have such adorably sweet images. As a matter of fact they have a monthly challenge blog and this month it's a Merry Christmas Challenge. I'll be posting this card over there, too.
For starters, I stamped my image in Memento Rich Cocoa on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. I thought it kept it kind of country/crafty by using the brown ink. And the Neenah cardstock is perfect for the colored pencils. The sentiment is from SSS November card kit stamp set called, Be Joyful. I really wanted to try for a background and maybe some falling snow, but I chickened out at the last minute. When I got my image colored I was afraid I would totally mess up the card..lol. So, this is my clean and simple (very simple), one-layered, krafty, pencil-colored Christmas card.
I did stamp this image on three different papers with the intention of coloring these little guys in three different mediums. I'll be sure to post them when I get them colored up.
That's it for me tonight. Thanks for stopping by!
