Hi Suzanne! Do you have any suggestions for coloring on craft paper colored stock? I have seen some cards lately that are really cute....but they are colored on craft stock type paper, instead of white. At first, I thoguht the image was cut out and adhered onto the craft, but it wasn't. I am intrigued ..but I have no idea where to start. Any suggestions????
Yep and I actually teach it in one of my classes here...Class 4 I think? LOL! Its really easy to do but you have to choose bolder colors..the lighter colors just wet the cs but the color doesn't transfer well KWIM.
Also kraft is pretty porous so it does suck your ink quickly so be light-handed. It gives a softer, more vintage look to everything. And then using white chalk or a white Sharpie you can add bright white highlites and doodles & such that look awesome on kraft. HTH!
Yes, it does help! If you were coloring something white, like a snowman, what would your recommendation be...chalk? white sharpie? something else?
I loved the classes in CT. I need to find time to take the classes online!!!!! :)
You could use chalks...I just got back into using the NeoColor pastels and will be doing a card on kraft with them soon :) Maybe i should video it hmmm? We will see LOL!
Suzanne, what brand of kraft paper do you use?
I have 2---Gina K and Paper Trey Ink....I mix it all together LOL so I'm not sure what I use when, they are very similar but I love them both and they work well and nice weight for coloring.
