Beach on Kraft

At Flourishes Timeless Tuesday, Cindy is the hostess and wants us to use Kraft paper on our project.  I used Kraft for practically the whole card except for an orange CS Mat.  I stamped the Palm Trees from Flourishes "Beach Life" Set on GKD Kraft CS with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with pencils. I sponged some clouds in the sky with Memento Summer Sky and Ranger Distress Ink Tumbled Glass. I just kept coloring and sponging until I was satisfied with the scene hoping not to overdo. The sentiment was stamped on the Kraft with Memento Morocco Ink. Added my brown brads for coconuts. Used Kraft card base with orange mat topped with the beach scene. I have done another card very similar to this but using Kraft creates a whole new look and style. Had to add some white with a pencil to keep sky and sand from being too dark.

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday: Use Kraft Paper
A Blog Named Hero: Challenge is to incorporate Kraft into a project.
Craft a Scene: Challenge is Great Outdoors...clouds in the background and palm trees in the foreground
Anything Goes Challenge Blog: Summer Days
Allsorts Challenge: Use metal--metal brads on trees.

 I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa

Good morning Theresa

I'm afraid blogger doesn't want to show me your photo of your work, but I can see on the tiny thumbnail that it looks like an idyllic tropical beach with palm trees.

It's lovely to see you at Craft a Scene and Allsorts challenges, many thanks joining as at both.
