Revived Technique

It has been a coon's age since I used my watercolor pencils.  Fun!  This weekend I plan to try coloring on kraft using the pencils.  As pencils, not watercolor, as I'll be using regular card stock.  Does kraft watercolor paper exist? 

The Details:  Penny Black Blooming Garden, Hero Arts Everyday Sayings, Aquarelle watercolor paper, Memento Rich Cocoa & Tuxedo Black, Environment Green Tea cover stock, Derwent watercolor pencils, trim from sewing stash, My Mind's Eye "My Favorite Things" 6x6 paper, Cuttlebug embossing folder

I'm entering this in Whoopsi Daisy Favorite Color Combo (muted orange), Incy Wincy Designs Add Texture, Simon Wednesday Challenge Emboss It, Tuesday Throwdown #178 Stripes, Without Words Spots and/or Stripes, and CAS(E) this Sketch! #60.

  4. I have never seen kraft water-colour paper either but it would open up a lot of possibilities. Great layering and great use of texture. Thanks for joining the texture challenge at Incy Wincy Designs this week.
