I'm in a better mood today. :-) Know why? New technique, that's why!
I wish I could say I thought of it myself, but I didn't, but that's ok.The main thing is that I have something new to occupy myself! I found out about this technique while going through my blog updates a few days ago. A talented girl named Judy is going to be doing a class on coloring on Kraft. You can check out her blog here.
I never thought I would be buying Kraft. In fact, I've seen it for some time in the stores and thought "what is the world coming to when they want you to buy brown paper bags? Hello? This is just cardboard is it not?" Well, it is and it isn't. Its cardstock thickness (not cardboard) and its the texture of a brown paper bag. So when it comes to laying down color on it, it has more "tooth" so it can take more layers than your typical white cardstock.
It's pretty exciting. I haven't had that rush of crafting contentment in a long time~ :-)
It almost turns your prismacolors into pastels or chalk. Its an entirely different effect than normal paper.

And this part below is for the folks over at the Stampin Ground who want to see our messes today! This was my card in progress...(partially cleaned up now)
As you can see from the picture below, Ive printed out more images on Kraft so you can expect to see more Krafty goodness in the coming posts. (til I get sick of it and move on to something else!)
And as for the card, I would like to enter it in the following challenges:
