I Got A Round Tuit In A Krafty Way.

Every time a see an image coloured on Kraft I say 'I really must get round tuit'. Well now I have. It's been a long haul though lol. Annemaritta  kindly sent me the Kraft Card-stock, but it was a while before I got further than occasionally looking at the images I'd printed on it. When I did start colouring I found it frustrating - I don't have prisma colour pencils and mine are perhaps just not soft enough. Then a couple of days ago 'the penny dropped' and I realised that I'd get that nice pastel pencils look people talk about....if I used my pastel pencils. It was a pleasure to colour and I even had a go at a sky background at last (another round tuit ticked off). For a great sky background tute see Dorcas' here

I used some old ready creased cardstock in blue and cut it with a large Go Kreate scalloped Circle, cut a smaller circle in peach. I cut some fancy corner from scraps of the blue cardstock to sit behind the Image. I cut a little banner from printed ribbon, and added gems, a bow and a cute little giraffe holding a blankie button.
