What’s Black,White,Red & Krafty all over?!



At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Black,White,Red & Kraft.We have the fabulous QKR Stampede as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

The answer to my riddle,of course,is my card!I’ve printed this delightful Zebra by QKR Stampede onto kraft card and coloured him with Polychromos pencils.No fancy  skills here just wanted to make his non-black stripes white 🙂 A little blue pencil has been blended out around him to create a sky effect and the grass beneath picked out with brown.I’ve wanted to make one of these Polaroid style frames for a while.It totally takes me back to when I got one of these cameras for my tenth birthday 😀 Wanting it to be as close to the real thing as possible I rather sadly looked up the measurements then used a Nestie as close to the actual photo size as I could get.So simple and it worked!I decided to stamp the greeting directly onto it.I’ve taken a pennant die and used it as a button topped tab,curled around the frame.The card base has been cut from some printed kraft card.A small border,edged with one of my most favourite punches,wrapped  with ribbon has been added to this before the frame was mounted using foam tape for dimension.Job done 🙂
