Cupcake Craft Challenge 170...Lets Get Krafty


Morning everyone, the last few days of November are fast approaching and come 1st December it will be full steam ahead for Christmas...I have to confess that we put our Christmas tree up yesterday...the earliest it's ever gone up but I don't mind really...it all comes down New Year's day anyway!

Well this weeks challenge at Cupcake was a real head stratcher for me and to make it even worse it was ME that chose the challenge theme lol! I chose 'KOLOURING ON KRAFT' because I wanted to pick a theme for something I haven't done before and using kraft card as a base colour is something I have wanted to try and have not been brave enough until now! I kind of enjoyed it, but realised very quickly that pastel coloured Promarkers don't shown up very well on kraft so I went with bright vibrant colours that actually worked quite well in the end!

The Cupcakes have really rocked this challenge and the girls are so much better at colouring than me...pop over to Cupcake to see some fab inspirational makes...we really look forward to you joining in with us this week!

This weeks sponsor is the fab Crafty Emma's Store and she is offering a £10 gift voucher to the winner and Novembers 'Icing on the Cupcake' sponsor is Crafts U Love and the lucky winner will win a £15 Gift Voucher.

A lovely card. I've never coloured on Kraft either (never actually used Kraft before!), but I always think it looks great. The image is so sweet.

I think this looks fab Donna! Cute image and love the colours you've used :o) I've tried using promarkers on kraft but not very successfully, got better results with pencils. Lisa x
