Make it Colourful Challenge #18

Hi again!  I am back with a second post today.  If you are looking for my DoveArt Blog Hop post, please click here or scroll down one post. I am back now with my DT post for the new Make it Colourful Challenge.  The challenge for this month is "color on Kraft with pink".  You can use any coloring medium you'd like, but you must color on Kraft paper.  If you haven't done this before, it's a great chance to try something new!  I had only tried coloring on Kraft once before, so it was something different for me, too.  As always, the fabulous Make it Crafty DT has plenty of amazing inspiration for you on the Make it Colourful blog.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Primrose Petals and the patterned papers are from the Authentique Uncommon 6x6 pad.  The sweet image is Penny In Love, one of the newly-released Love Collection from Make it Crafty.  I colored her on Kraft with Prismacolor Pencils.  I definitely need more practice with this technique, but trying something new is what these challenges are all about!  The chipboard sentiment is from the Doodle Love Words Chipboard set, also new from Make it Crafty.  A simple bow finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Make it Colourful Challenge blog and check out the outstanding creations from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will join in on the challenge.  There is a special album set up in the Make it Crafty store photo gallery just for challenge entries.  Can't wait to see what you create!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 #43 (sketch)
Cute Card Thursday #359 (crazy in love)
Fab 'n Funky Challenge #245 (hearts and/or flowers; I used hearts)
Crafting For All Season #95 (have a heart)
