Random Stamping on Kraft

The other day Ally Cope posted a tutorial on Flourishes blog on how to incorporate Kraft paper onto a layout page - 'Let's Get Krafty'. I loved it so much I decided to give it a try and created a card with it. Basically, you random stamp on Kraft paper with Memento ink, making sure not to leave large open spaces and then colour in around the stamped images with a Copic marker, I used Black. To help avoid large open spaces, I stamped the smaller flower on scrap, cut them out and used them to help space where I placed the large flower. Seemed to work. I love the look and versatility of this technique.
I used this week's sketch at Clean & Simple #191 and also entered this week's challenge 'Beautiful Butterflies' at Tuesday Alchemy Challenge blog.
Supplies: Card size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" - All supplies CTMH except where noted Paper - Kraft, Colonial White, Black cardstock Stamps - Card Word Puzzle, Tage Lines (Flourishes) Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Black Copic Accessories - Licorice Pearl Opaques Other - Beautifu Wings Embosslit (SU)
