Loving the Kraft....

I can't quite believe another week has nearly passed and I didn't manage to get back online to update my blog - so sorry if you've been visiting for updates and there hasn't been any! I promise I'll try harder ... lol.

This week has been really hectic in more ways than one - we've been helping my daughter move into her new home she has with Lee, waiting in for furniture deliveries, trying to get some samples made up, projects needing to be sent here, there and everywhere, and finally spend some time for 'me' to keep me sane! lol.

Still... we survived it, it's just the dust bunnies now that need sorting out in my house! But they can wait a little while until I get this post up and sorted.

Today, I want to share with you a card idea I've been playing around with for a while, and it uses the Papermania Kraft card as my base for stamping.

 I decided to try out the Tatty Teddy on it first, as he does actually look really nice coloured brown, so thought I'd put him on brown and colour him as normal.. he looks a bit good doesn't he?!

Here's a close up of the teddy.. adding the colour onto the Kraft makes it go slightly textured, and you can blend really well too... I think he looks lovely. What do you think?

I'm going to sort out the post to put my second card on tomorrow (In case I forget as I'm meeting Sharon in town for a coffee!).

I do think that this is a technique I'll be doing more of - everyone at my demo on Saturday was loving the different look.. why don't you give it a try too, and let me know if you do, and I'll come a blog-visiting!
