Jacksonbelle Tuesday...getting Krafty

Apr27  blk

Our challenge today is to use get "Krafty" and use Kraft cardstock. Keyword JBE103

Be sure to stop by the store and see what Lindsey has on sale!!

I have 2 cards to share today...
I didn't start out to make 2...
but...

My first card is a sneak peek at a new set from Our Daily Bread designs, For the Graduate, being released May 1st! I had the card ALL done, then read what our challenge was!!! DUH... use KRAFT!

All I had in mind was the product feature this week,
October Afternoon cardstock!!

So, I cut my card down and put it on a base of Kraft!

Apr27 For the Grad It's colored with Copics, with airbrushing for the sky. I added some white gel pen flowers and used Marvy wet markers and clear embossing powder for the flowers.Apr27 closeup pen1

Now............this is where it gets fun! Our power had blipped off for a brief second this afternoon. I didn't think too much about it since it came right back on. A little while later I got a *reminder* email from Heather saying she needed my card for tomorrow's post since I was one of the featured designers. *GASP* I forgot!! No problem, I could just send her the one I had done...

BLIP!

The power went
.................off!................
and stayed OFF!!

Isn't it nice that you can still stamp without power?! (provided you have enough light...thankfully the sun came out!)

Since I hadn't really done much with Kraft, I started another card. Hoping the power would come back on before blogs had to go live! LOL!

Apr27  blog blk I love coloring with Prismacolor pencils on Kraft! So, that's exactly what I did!

Hi Dawn~

What wonderful cards! I love how the colors look on the kraft paper! I love all of the details on around the bridge...so wonderful! Lucky Graduate!

The young girl with the balloons is such a great card! I had no idea we could shade hair color with colored pencils! And, her clothes, including that tiny necklace look great. You have done some wonderful detaining Dawn.

I am back! (somewhat) I've missed you!

LOve both of these & how different they are. That Daily bread card is a scene out of Utopia. The colours, ahhhh. AND Jolinne is stunning. Prismas on Kraft! NO WAY! It looks incredible. Hmmmm... I needa get some more Kraft paper. I hope you're doing wonderfully. I'm migrainey but workin on get back in the swing of things. (And Girlfriend let's just say now that you were SO right about me not being able to be un-insane!) Extra time might have been a recipe for disaster--in the form of one 100 photo tutorial. UH OH! heeheehee
