CES Challenge #77 - Kolouring on Kraft!

Good morning all - look I actually have managed to post this before lunchtime lol! Only managed to get a half decent photo this morning so that's my excuse!

It's a lovely spring like day here today - had my hair cut so am feeling a bit pampered - will I be pampered tomorrow I wonder???

Now, Donna has set a real challenge this week:

Well I have to admit this one had me in a cold sweat - I just really struggle to colour on kraft, love it to mat with, but to colour on? Aaargh!! I think it's because I just can't get the colours the way I want them, particularly the whole skin colour thing.

So here is my offering:

I know I've gone more for a mono look with the image - it's one of the new Hero Art Cling stamps which I stamped onto kraft card with TH. I then used the same ink colour to colour the image, it kinda works I think!

From Crafty Emma's Store I have used Prima "En Francais" papers, Bakers Twine, Sentiment and Card Candi. Everything else was from my stash.

As always, this week's lucky winner will receive £10 voucher (not incl P&P) to spend at Crafty Emma's Store:

Please do pop over to my teamies blogs where you can see they have done much better than I have at colouring on kraft!! I hope we inspire you to join us this week!
