Back to Kraft Basics

Supplies:  Stamps - Follow your heart by My Mind's Eye, 
sentiment - SRM sticker in brown,Brown ink - Memento, 
white colouring pencil, Martha Stewart Butterfly 
punch, Chipboard frame - Papermania, A6 kraft card 
blank - Papermania, pearls - Iconcraft (coloured with copics), 
adhesive tape - Hampstead by Papermania, tea dye distress ink,
blending tool and brown copic.

This week's challenge on Paperplay is - "Back to Kraft Basics" and we are very kindly sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

I decided to keep this very simple and let the "kraft base" be my focal point with pops of white!  I used the stamps that came in the March Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp.

I coloured the stamped image with white colouring pencil and love how it pops against the white.  I then punched a butterfly which I inked with distress ink and a blending tool and did the same with the chipboard frame.

Thanks for peeking.  Hope you get a chance to play along with us this week.  Be sure to check out the other gals creations right here.
