Happy Canada Day....and a New Challenge at OCS

Good day, my friends.  I just want to wish all my fellow Canadian friends a "Happy Canada Day!"  It is a long weekend here and we are all hopefully enjoying some relaxing time with family, friends, food and fireworks.  It is also the last day of my vacation on which I have had an amazing time but back to the grind tomorrow.

Today, being the first of the month of July, is also a new challenge at One Crazy Stamper.  The challenge is to use the colour KRAFT on a project.  All the details can be found on the blog.

For my project I decided I wanted to try to colour on kraft paper.  I have seen it done before and liked the way it turned out but wasn't really sure I could use my Copic markers on card stock that was not Copic.I gave it a try.  I learned that the colours don't blend quite as well and that some colours do not show up at all.  The colours are also altered a bit from what they would look like on white.  But all in all, a good attempt:


(all linked supplies available at One Crazy Stamper)
Card Stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ Echo Park "A Perfect Summer" 6" x 6" Pad
Spellbinders ~ Nestabilities Wonky Rectangles
