When I've had too much of reality, I open a book!

I love this sentiment from the Betsy Booklover stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

I don't know about you but I always missplace my bookmarks.. and often use random pieces of paper as a bookmark. So I decided I'd make one this time. It nice and big with some ribbons on it so I cant lose this one can I? 

Here it is:

I used a whole bunch of colors so she would fit the rainbow colors theme here is the list:
Skin: E04, 11, 21, 00, 000
Purple: V09, 06, 05, 01 (used bv08 first in the hair but didnt like it with the blue so went over it with v09) Blue: B69, 66, 63 and B37 in the shadows to tone it down a little. Green: YG69, 63, 45, 11 Yellow: Y17, 15, 13, 11, 00 Orange: YR07, 04, Y17, 15 Red: R59, 29, 27, 24, 22 Pink: RV09, 06, 04, 02 Teal: BG09, 07, 05, 02, 01, 000

Pencils on Kraft with Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

So last night my pencil+kraft coloring adventure started!
Jessie Banks(Jessie's blog) did a live coloring video in the KKS fb group! We started coloring Cinderella!! I love that stamp <3 and since I am always stunned by the look of pencil on kraft, I thought I'd try it out this time!
Now we didn't finish her but we did a lot:
We did the skin, hair, eyes and started on her dress. But later this week Jessie is gonna upload a youtube video with the rest of her dress! yay!

I am using a piece of kraft card stock I normally use for card bases and some bruynzeel coloring pencils I have had since I was little... So I was picking my colors as I went and since I was missing like all the blond hair colors mine got pink/purplish hair!
Here my progress so far (the photo is a bit light sorry)

I was to scared to mess this up so I am waiting for the video, but I did color another image!
I went with Pamper me Paulina and made her into a card!
I just love how white pops on kraft its amazing and so…

Sweet little Batty Princess

I am gonna have to pack up my crafting stuff cause im moving soon,
but I had a little time yesterday to color and make this card :)

I used the Spellbinder nestabilities floral ovals die for the blue metalic frame.
Used 2 black and white papers with glitter, some black satin ribbon a suede brown with gold shimmer cord, some pearly stickers and cut 2 small pieces for an oraganza frilly ribbon as some sort of bats. Unfortunatly since i got my stamp second hand the 2 small stamps the little bat and the pumpkin are missing.
