For this card, I used kraft-colored cardstock (since I was fresh out of lunch bags). I know this would work GREAT using big brown-paper shopping bags. Next time I go to the grocery store and they ask me "Paper or plastic"...I'm gettin' paper. I made this card as a belated birthday card for my Aunt Sherry. She is a hard-core rock 'n' roller--has been as long as I can remember. She plays the electric bass. So when I found this stamp by KennyK, I knew it belonged on a card for her.
Originally, I was going to paper tole it. But it just wasn't flying. So I broke down and just colored the whole stamp...PAINSTAKINGLY...with my Prismacolor pencils. I love my Prismas. And, on kraft paper...they are TOTALLY rockin'!!! Kraft paper, who knew??
