Stamping on Kraft

I seldom stamp on Kraft cs, so this was en experiment - I am trying to do some new techniques - even though they are kind of small!  My ink does not normally smear, but it did seem to bleed a bit when I used the baby oil to blend the Prismas - so I skipped the blending on the other flowers.  (The color does not show well at all - the lower large flower is orange,)  The image is High Hopes.  The mat behind the image has embossed stripes.  The cord and die cut hello (Cuttkebug) add more texture.  I really like the striped paper - it came in a kind of grab bag - great colors and variety of stripes.

  1. I love trying new techniques! Color pencils on Kraft card stock can be a challenge, but blending may be easier using only pencils in various shades of the same color. Kraft tends to just really absorb inks and blending solutions. Thank you for playing along in this week's Kraft Journal sketch challenge.
