Earth Tones

Good morning!  It's a beautiful Sunday!  Today at Dream Valley we are looking for cards or projects using earth tones.  

This fortnight out sponsor is:

The winner gets £20 to spend in the store!

For my card I have used the Stampin' Up set Little Boys.  I stamped the image and sentiment on kraft paper.  I had never colored with copics on kraft paper before, so I wasn't sure how it would work out.  It just turns out that you can't use the lightest blending tones on the kraft because it only looks like it's wet instead of a color.  The darker colors show up better.  I didn't want to color in the whole image, because I wanted the blues and browns to really show up like those photos you see where one color is popping out.  Couldn't resist the green frog though!

I would like to add this to the following challenges:

Drunken Stampers - use kraft
Our Creative Corner - our boys and their toys
Secret Crafter - men's card

Have a great week!
