Hi ya, well I would never have realised, if you hadn't said, this is your first attempt of colouring on Kraft - it's perfect (as always). Gorjuss little stamp and lovely colours. I really, really must try this soon - have seen so many lovely cards using this technique - saw on someones blog that they coloured on the back of wrapping paper inner tubes - might give that a go.
