Get Krafty!

It's time for another There She Goes Challenge!  This week is brought to us by the Trendsetter of the week the very talented Miss Jodi!  She's issued us the challenge of using Kraft Cardstock somewhere on our creations.  Either as card base, mats to layers...focal panel, or you can create a masterpiece that showcases only Kraft...the choices are endless.

I decided to go with an almost only Kraft palette, using white as my pop against it.  Kraft to me is such a versatile color - and goes especially great with white and Prismacolor pencils!


I've stamped the Hydrangea blossom from the TSG set Garden of Friends.  Stamping it in Memento Tuxedo Black and then adding the pop of white in my Prismacolor pencils - using White and Sky Blue Light.  I have a circle theme going here mimicking the circle blooms so I added my sentiment and other circles also in a circle.  


With the addition of some embossing, pearls, seam-binding and a border punch it gives you a very neutral but classic design :)  

So...join us on the challenge!  Create a card incorporating Kraft Cardstock and then come back to the TSG Blog and add your name to the InLinkz at the bottom of the challenge post.  The winner of the week will be eligible for a $5 give certificate to use in the TSG Web store!  

Stamps:  TSG - Garden of Friends;  Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Crumb Cake, White Craft Ink;  Paper:  Whisper White, Kraft;  Accessories:  Big Shot, Dotted Embossing Folder, Scalloped Circle Punch, 1 3/4 Circle Punch, 1 inch Circle Punch, Martha Stewart Quilt Edge Border Punch, Kraft Seambinding, Basic Grey Pearls, Prismacolor Pencils.

so pretty, I do like the way the white pops against the kraft, don't know if I have ever tried that combo, like the way the pearls wind around the circles, and the layering of your edge punches!
