Welcome to the New Kid on the Block, Kraft+ (also known as K+). K+ is a new challenge blog devoted to all things Kraft! They have launched their first challenge today, the February Challenge: Mango Breeze, and it is spectacular!
I travelled to the USA in June of 2014 with my bestie, and we spent three glorious days in New Orleans. The Mango Breeze colours screamed "Bourbon Street" to me.
There is a streak of white heat embossing across the top that I wanted to use to balance out the page and to provide a lighter backdrop for the letters in the word "COLOURS". I have cut out the word "COLOURS" using Stampin' Up!'s "Little Letters Thinlits Dies". I used the Mango Breeze inspiration palette in reverse order for the letters in the word.
The letters for NO, LA (which stands for New Orleans, LA [Louisiana]) are from an old Heidi Swapp plastic alphabet set I've had for positively eons. The colour wasn't right, so I ran an emery board over the tops of the letters to roughen them up and added ink to the top. I then used a Sakura Gelly Roll Moonlight pen to add some additional detail.
I have used the negative space created by cutting out the words "BOURBON ST" from black craft foam to add a bit of extra interest to the page.
I'm thrilled with how this page came together, and I think that this Kraft+ challenge site has inspired me to perhaps create all of my New Orleans pages on Kraft (and maybe even my entire trip, but I'm not too sure about that yet...)
I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!
