Marks Finest Papers August Blog Hop- Day 2

Welcome to the Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company

August Blog Hop! 

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

So glad you stopped by for day 2! Today we are showing off the Hydrangea stamp set!
I soooo wanted to try to dolor on kraft paper. So here is my first attempt, and I really like it! I used my Prismacolor pencils and I love the texture that I got on the paper. I need to work a little on shading but over all, I think I am hooked!
My Card Tip: Don't be afraid to try something new. It may be your next favorite technique.
 (or a flop, "ahem"....Fabar Castell Gellatoes, lol), but you gotta try!

See you tomorrow for our next day!
