Humphrey on Kraft

Hello everyone and welcome to another Saturday with Janette. I am so super excited to share today's project because seriously I had a blast creating it and it is something that I had in mind for quite some time now. 

I am sharing a one layer card embossed and colored on Kraft. So here it is...
CAUTION: Picture heavy post:0)

 Here is a closer look at the image Hello Rudolph from the Humphrey Collection.

 Here you can see a little bit better the embossing and what a pretty texture it gives this card. This is the 6x6 Regal Frame.

 Here is a little tip for when coloring on Kraft. Jot down color on a scrap piece  of your Kraft to get a good idea of how your colors will show up. 

Here are a few things that I have noticed:
-Coloring on Kraft is more forgiving; hence easier to blend and harder to see mistakes= more fun!
-Bright colors look best
- Color will bleed faster, so be sure to not put too much color down
-As the alcohol evaporates (ink dries) the colors will start to look brighter. It is like magic seeing those colors show through!
I got my inspiration for coloring this image from the packaging:0)

 Skin: BGR3, BGR1, Blender
Reds: DR7, DR1, CR10, CR5
Greens: DG3, CG4
Rudolph: TN7, GB8, GB1/ TN8, TN7
*White is Tim Holtz Picket Fence Distress Marker

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a chance to try coloring on Kraft I promise it is FUN!

Til next Saturday!
