Christine's Inspiration

Here I go again posting kind of late, been another one of those very busy days and I just had to make myself stop and post.

Today I am sharing a card inspired by Christine  of Christine's Creations.  In this post , she colored on Kraft cardstock and I just love that look, had to give it a try.  My card will be going to my friend that loves the country feel and I thought coloring on kraft paper would be perfect.  I tried to do soft coloring like Christine but lets just say she is a pro at coloring and I am still learning :)  but I do like how it turned out.

Inkadinkado -- Beauty stems from here stamp set, colored w/ pencils
Simple stories-- Generations paper
Spellbinders Classic Rectangles small and Back to basics tags dies
EK Success -- Corner punch
Queen & co. -- Yellow Sunshine pearls
Hero Arts-- Birthday messages stamp set
Bazzill Basics Paper -- Brads

I outlined the flowers and the leaves with a light blue color but in the pic it looks like I went outside the lines with my white pencil.  The butterfly was stamped once and stamped again on cardstock, colored with markers and glued on top.

I sure hope you get the chance to stop by Christine's blog she does Beautiful coloring, she shares her beautiful photography too, such wonderful inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by today,
