The Kraft Journal - Celebration!

Earlier this week Therese at Lostinpaper posted an AMAZING creation with Prismacolor pencils on kraft - and I said I was writing it down on my challenge sheet so that I would remember to FINALLY try it myself. And I did! I love how it turned out:


Supplies: Hero Arts butterfly stamp; Prismacolor pencils; rub-on from Bazzill (from Pam! thank you!); kraft card stock; classic small & lacy circle Nesties; papers from Amy Tangerine; Sakura Stardust pen; various bling from Dollarama; crocheted mat by me (available here)



After I was finished colouring, I applied a bit of Stardust glitter pen, and smudged it with my fingers to blend it around a bit. The rainbow bling strips are arranged to overlap the crochet just a little bit & peek out as kind of a blingy scalloped edge. The words aren't coming here, but anyway....lol. I really love the angled green layer - this layout wants to be a sketch!

I knew I wanted to go bold & bright and SPARKLY because I envisioned this card making a perfect tween/teen birthday card - and THAT fits perfectly into this week's Kraft Journal challenge, which is Celebrations. Their linky is open until tonight.

One more card coming up - and some really fabulous news!!
xoxo,
Jessi

It also fits perfectly with the Gallery Idol challenge. It's tween/teen perfection! The pencils look fabulous against the kraft and all the glitter and bling are awesome! It's just such a happy card and has totally made me smile. :)
