Turquoise and Kraft

I totally cased this card . Yes, totally! I saw it and fell in love with the colors! I have also been wanting to do some coloring on Kraft so this seemed the perfect opportunity. I colored the images with a turquoise WaterColor pencil and blended it with my aquapainter. I used a white gel pen to highlight parts of the image.


My favorite stamp set of the moment is definitely this one....Playful Petals. I could color this all day! I love the geometric nature of the flowers, and how you can layer them...so much fun! The outside white layer is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, and I used the scallop edge punch on the tempting turquoise layer.

I finished the inside with another one of the images from this set. This card came together so quickly! and all because I cased another wonderful card!
