This is really less a technique and more a reminder about how great coloring with Prismacolor pencils is on kraft paper. To me, coloring and blending seems easier, and colors seem more vibrant on kraft paper.
First I die cut a piece of kraft cardstock using the largest die from the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables LF768. This makes a rectangle that is 5" x 3.75", with stitches all around. I chose the Zen Bouquet image that I designed for Magenta this Spring, 44.024.Q, and stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

MINI CLASSES ARE HERE!!
We have been planning something really special for you, and Marj is going to get the ball rolling with a Mini Class!
We thought of doing these classes after the amazing success of the 12 Tags of Christmas make and takes. We thought it would be fun to step it up a notch and do a card; plus teach you some tips and techniques that you can use on lots of other projects. Each Mini Class will be open for a window of 2-3 hours, and will be held like a make and take. These will occur on different days of the week or weekend, and different times. Come any time during the time period given, and you can make the card for that day. Most of the supplies will be provided, but we may ask you to bring some items like tape runner or other things to help you complete your card. If you're in a hurry, or are on a lunch break, you can always put the card together at home, but you will have time to at least do the top panel, learn a new technique and have fun! The cost will be $5.00 in cash or store credit only please, and given to the teacher (your $5 in store credit can be transferred to the teacher if you choose to use that; whoever is working at the register can help you).
Marj will be doing the first one on May 15, 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. Come in any time during that 2 hours to make this beautiful card.
