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!

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.

Flourish Bird

Day off today so wanted to have a play with a Kaisercraft stamp I bought from Spotlight last month.
I gave the copics a rest today and had a play with distress ink pads and watercolour paper. Quick, easy and a lot of fun. I will share another card tomorrow using the same image

Little watercolour play

Yep another Katzelkraft Stamp!!!! This time a bit out of my comfort zone where I wouldn't normally buy a fish stamp...let alone one that has 3 fish on it!!! Its called Kois, and fell into my basket when I bought a stash of other Katzelkraft stamps from Meetu at Krafters Cart.
So I used Distress Inks to colour the fish and fussy cut around them, sponged the background to give the illusion of shadows and then glued them down. Nice and simple.
