Today we have the cutest little christmas birdies for you from Melissa Baker-Nguyen Merry and Bright Birdies
This fabulous set comes with FIVE main images of these fluffy peeps, plus super fun sentiments and accessory stamps!!


My process for this card was completly different then usual. Normally I color first and then see what I have in my paper stock that matches. This time I picked my papers first, made the layout, then picked out which 2 birdies fit best in this frame and colored them in the colors of the papers.

Pencils on Kraft with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Image
So last night my pencil+kraft coloring adventure started!
Jessie Banks(Jessie's blog) did a live coloring video in the KKS fb group! We started coloring Cinderella!! I love that stamp <3 and since I am always stunned by the look of pencil on kraft, I thought I'd try it out this time!
Now we didn't finish her but we did a lot:
We did the skin, hair, eyes and started on her dress. But later this week Jessie is gonna upload a youtube video with the rest of her dress! yay!

I am using a piece of kraft card stock I normally use for card bases and some bruynzeel coloring pencils I have had since I was little... So I was picking my colors as I went and since I was missing like all the blond hair colors mine got pink/purplish hair!
Here my progress so far (the photo is a bit light sorry)

I was to scared to mess this up so I am waiting for the video, but I did color another image!
I went with Pamper me Paulina and made her into a card!
I just love how white pops on kraft its amazing and so…

Unfortunatly since i got my stamp second hand the 2 small stamps the little bat and the pumpkin are missing.
