Kraft Paper - Try something new! - Meljen

Morning everyone
I dont know about you, but I tend to look at all the talented crafters out there and think WOW wish I could do that! Well today I decided to give something a go that I have never tried before.
Everyone that follows and keeps up with me know I LOVE my copics, and occasionally dabble in distress inks.... well today I went out and bought Kraft paper and decided to try colouring with a mixture of Prisma and Polychromo pencils

Years ago I used to colour a lot of Meljen images, well... I found these on my computer and also contacted Mel to see if I could purchase a few more... printed some out on Kraft and picked out my paper from Kaisercraft called Island Escape... I love the soft colours in this pad, so dreamy.

SO... had my very first attempt at pencils on kraft.!! What do you think?? Think I might be doing a few more of this style!!
Happy crafting

Katzelkraft - Les zoisos

Morning, hope you are all having a great day. I'm having a bit of a clean out in my craft room and came across these little fellas that I haven't shown yet on here. 

I stamped all 5 images on Ranger Watercolour paper. Then I decided to use up any old paper I had, then used colours in the papers to match my distress inks to colour.

This is a set of 5 stamps from Katzelkraft called Les zoisos which I bought online at Krafterscart.
Hope I have inspired you to gets out those unused bits of paper and ink up some stamps!
Come back tomorrow and see the remaining birds

Kaisercraft - Owl

Just sharing this quick card with you... especially the NZ ladies.... why??? I picked up this cute little stamp from Spotlight for about $4. I cant even remember why I was there.... but it just happened to fall in my basket!
I made both these cards within an hour using Tim Holtz distress inks for the colouring and just random paper stash that I am trying to use up before I touch my big hoard of new paper!

Colour of Love - Autumn Illumination

Afternoon from sunny NZ... I have to have a clean out of my craft room!!! I lose images like this one in the piles that I have created! I have been lucky enough to be one of Heather's Colour of Love  colourists for years now and her images are always stunning and Auntum Illumination is way up there on the LOVE to colour pile! Shes coloured with Copics and Prisma pencils.

Flourish Bird take two!

So this is the second card I made with my Flourish Bird stamp. When I made these two cards using the same image I picked out paper I wanted and then coloured images to match. I used to take hours doing a card, now I have trained myself never to overthink and I am far more happier with the outcome.
