Experimenting with Kraft

I thought I would experiment with promarkers and kraft card. Obviously, because the kraft is darker, I've had to use something more opaque for the skintones and highlights. I found the SU Kraft cardstock was fine for blending the promarkers - no bleeding. So, this was my first attempt...

Image: Miss Anya Rain by The Greetings Farm, coloured with: light peach prismacolor pencil for the skin tones, promarkers: cinnamon, raw sienna and cocoa for hair; blossom & rose pink for jacket and socks; pastel green and turquoise for skirt and umbrella; rose pink and maroon for boots. (and I've just realised I've forgotten to colour in her buttons! argh) Highlights are done with sakura gelly roll med.
Papers are all Clare Curd's Signature Range - The Big One
Kraft and black cardstock are Stampin' Up
Greeting is Daisy & Dandelion
Kars paper lace ribbon
EK Success retro flower punches to make the flower, Papermania brad for centre, Floral Punchcraft Ash Branch punch.
