Caardvarks Kraft Paper Challenge

Here is a card I created for Caardvarks' challenge to use kraft paper. I don't usually use kraft paper, so this was a bit of a stretch for me.

I like to use bright colors, but I didn't care for the look of the colored cardstock against the brown paper. So I smeared black, red and green ink pads directly on the paper and cut my pieces from that. I like the end result.

I'd love to get some feedback on this!

Materials: kraft paper; Crimson and Emerald Green (Rubber Stampede), rubber stamp (Inkadinkado)

Tools: sm. circle punch, sm. swirl punch, 1/8" hole punch, scalloped scissors

Love the cool shaded look of the direct-to-paper ink application ... and the cut blades of grass have such great dimension.
