My Time To Craft 'Colouring On Kraft' Challenge

Good morning all, this is my second post of the day please scroll down for my Crafty Calendar Challenges post.

It has been a very quiet week here for me, not a lot going on at all yet next week there are so many things to do I can't keep up why does that happen!

This week at My Time To Craft we were set the challenge of 'Colouring On Kraft', I have only ever done this once before and apart from the fact that I loved the effect I had so many comments saying the same I decided to make another couple of the same but in a different size. These will go into my box for the charity sale in November.

When I did this before I used some Bazill Kraft card stock but I had run out of this and couldn't get anymore so brought this card stock from ebay, it is lovely card and really quite smooth although not totally but could I get my promarkers to work with it oh no they just pulled up the fibres. I eventually gave in and tried my aqua markers which worked a treat but I don't have that many colours in those.

Not sure why this photo is so dark sorry.
