Season’s Greetings – Coloring on Kraft Cardstock

Spectrum noir maya isaksson color on kraft watermarked

I got inspired by and old tutorial from the Spectrum Noir blog on coloring on kraft cardstock. I have used the Spectrum Noir pencils on kraft cardstock but never the markers so I had to give it a try. I used some of the new Winnie & Walter stamps that I won, they are so pretty! I stamped the bird on a branch and gave it a shot. I picked pretty dark colors to make them really show up and I might have gone a bit to dark with them but I was really happy with the look so I'll definitely give this a try again. I added some snow with a white gel pen because it lightens up the card a bit. And I did cover the bird with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen. Because I can't stop reaching for them.

I angled the card to make the sparkle show…. It's hard to capture on pictures :)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
