Colouring on Kraft

Now colouring on Kraft is not something I do very often but The East Wind have a Facebook challenge going on at the moment which is to colour on Kraft so I thought I'd join in the fun.  The image I chose is Lucy Loo Maui Maui and is one I treated myself to the other weekend when Unky was having a sale.  I have used my spectrum noir pencils to colour the image and I'm really pleased with how she turned out, the only problem was that once she was coloured I had no idea what papers I was going to use to make a card, I'd just coloured as I felt which meant I have spent ages trying to decide on the papers and just as I was giving up I came across whats left of my MME Kraft Funday Happy Days pad and used a couple of pieces from there, the smaller piece is actually yellow background with Kraft dots but it doesn't show up too well.  Embellished with some Prima Tiny Tots, yellow bakers twine, flower charm and a stamped sentiment.

And a close up of Lucy Loo
