Brightly Colored Monsters on Kraft Cardstock

October 12, 2015

Aloha, crafters! Today I have another monster card featuring the clear stamp set called "Monster Party". As you might have gathered already, I really really love this set. And monsters :)

Today, I'm giving my colored pencils a workout again, using them on kraft card stock. It always amazes me that I can get such vibrant colors on kraft.


I tried to stamp the image with white pigment ink first, but when you color over the lines, the lines disappear because the colored pencils are not translucent. So I went with white heat embossing instead and got much better results.


I am also really enjoying the WRMK Rise and Shine embossing folders which don't emboss a pattern but sentiments. Just such a neat and unique way to add words to your cards. And it also doesn't distract from the overall design.

As always, thank you for stopping by today and taking the time to leave a comment. I truly appreciate it!
