Stamping onto Kraft Card

Sharing today a few cards and tags created by my Friday morning craft group ladies held in one of UK's biggest craft stores, to which I host every Friday.  Some were coloured using Derwent Chalk Pencils, some with Prismacolour Pencils, and some using Embossing Pens with clear embossing power.  The stamp was applied onto Kraft card, this card has a white fibre on the inside which allows one to sand back to bring the white to the top to give a great effect. The stamp was first stamped onto the card with Versamark then covered with White embossing powder and heat set.
Links to the stamps used.
