Feeling a bit Krafty with 2S4Y (sketch 57)

I finally got around to trying out a new technique that has been on my "to do" list for a while:  colouring with Copics on non-white/cream cardstock.  I used some Gina K Pure Luxury kraft cardstock, stamped the image onto it with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink and then coloured directly onto the cardstock.    Colouring directly onto the kraft gives such a different effect but I just *LOVE* the way it turned out!!  The chalkboard was paper pieced with black cardstock and the sentiment stamped in white ink.

Oh and I managed to squeeze two challenges out of this card......I used this week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch AND used some ruffled ribbon for this week's MFT Wednesday Stamp Club challenge over on Splitcoaststampers.

Stamps: Pure Innocence You Make the Grade by My Favorite Things stamps
Ink: Joann Essentials white pigment ink, Memento Rich Cocoa
Paper: K and Co, Coredinations, The Paper Company, Gina K Designs Pire Luxury Kraft cardstock, Bazzill
