Kraft Journal Color Challenge

I just recently found the Kraft Journal Blog and I'm so glad I did! I love, love, LOVE working with Kraft paper so I'm excited to join in on my first challenge with them. Anything goes with Kraft card stock. It's a basic necessity, like working with white or black. I love the natural feel it gives any project. Did I mention that I love Kraft?? Anyway, here's a card that I made for their color challenge. The color combo is an awesome one! So yummy!
I used a variety of different flower stamps to create the background which I stamped with Versa Mark then chalked over to give them color. I love how the background sort of blended together giving a very soft, overall feel. I used the Happy Hexagons cover plate from PTI for the next layer allowing the background image to shine through! I die cut several flower images from PTI and stamped them with Versa Mark and chalked them as well, using two colors for each flower to give it visual interest. I intentionally left the centers of each flower white. I placed them onto a vellum banner and stamped my sentiment at the bottom and heat embossed with black. The sentiment is also from PTI. Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
