Colour on Kraft Challenge at My Time to Craft

Good morning all

Bet you're all as confused as I am!! My Time to craft has moved days to Saturday from today - and I think I quite like it.  It makes a change to post at weekends.

This weeks challenge is

Colour on Kraft

Make anything you like as long as the coloured image is on Kraft card.  I have to admit that I've never done this before and it was a bit of a challenge - but wel,l thats what it is - I suppose some challenges are more challenging than others!!  The thing i found the hardest was that the kraft changes the colour of the pens so it needs a bit of thought to get it right.

I  decided to go really simple and make a tag with a gorgeuos stamp that I've had for ages but never used - I thought it would fit this challenge well

The flower and the sentiment are both from a beautiful set by Anna Griffin - I think its botanical flowers or something like that!  I made the tag in 3 layers in Kraft and Bazzill card in blue and coloured the stamped flower with blue copics  numbers B61,63 and 65.  I then went over it with a white gel pen to highlight the details and that really brought it to life.  The ribbons are from a bag of scrap ribbon.  There are several of these gorgeous flowers in the set - think I might make some more of these simple tags with different flowers.

Have a great weekend everyone - hope everyone enjoys the craft show at Harrogate - I would have loved to have gone but I'm babysitting my grandson while my daughter is away for the week at a wedding - so no can do!!

Beautiful tag with a lovely image Judith, I have quite a few Anna Griffin stamps but you don't see many people using them these days, so it makes a nice change to see one on your tag. Have a good weekend.
