Purple Floral on Kraft Birthday Card

I have seen several artists posting cards colored with colored pencils on kraft cardstock recently. I decided to give it a try. I have never tried to blend colored pencils (for this I used Prismacolor pencils) before, and it was really easy to do (and, BONUS! you can erase if you go outside the lines!).

Supplies: Stamps – Altenew, Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Papertrey Ink Kraft, Royal Velvet, inks – VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark, pencils – Prismacolor, dies – Lawn Fawn, embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Stampendous Gold Detail, metallic cord – Paper Mart.
