Darnell's NBUS #8 Challenge. She is celebrating her 5 Year Blog Birthaversary, along with running 3 weekly back-to-back NBUS challenges.
The first challenge runs from Jan. 16-22 and is Coloured Pencils on Kraft. She is open to other types of entries too. You can read her rules HERE.
I have never coloured with pencils on kraft before, but have always wanted to try it out. I managed to get a bit of shading on the leaves and stems, but not so much on the flowers. I'm sure there's a trick and I just don't know it. :)
I used a NBUS stamp that I've had for YEARS. I got it on sale at Michael's and it has sat collecting dust. I'm happy to finally use it. Thanks again Dolly ... I probably would never have used this stamp if it wasn't for your challenge!
Fun, whimsical stamp so thought I'd pair it with a Paper Smooches sentiment. First time using a staple on a card as well. :)
