I’m trying harder to find the time to film videos at the moment. I know it likely won’t last as life will get in the way but it makes me happy to keep sharing videos as much as I can. In todays video I’m coloring with pencils on kraft card. I had a lot of requests to see this technique after sharing this card the other day. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.

I’m using the Forest Friends collaborative set between Reverse Confetti and Simon Says Stamp, originally released in the autumn as part of STAMPtember. I didn’t get time to use the set then but feel it’s such a shame for these cute critters to be relegated to the autumn and winter months. After all foxes and owls are with us year round. I certainly hear the owl hooting in the woods opposite our house all year!

I started by stamping the images with Versafine Onyx Black on Neenah Desert Storm card and then dried the ink with a heat tool before starting to color. I used Prismacolor pencils for this card as I like how they blend so nicely on larger areas. Whereas I like Faber Castell Polychromos more for their harder lead to add details to watercolors and such. With either pencil a good sharpener is an essential tool and I like to use this T’Gaal one which is adjustable to give you either a short or long point. I prefer to keep my pencils sharp but short as I feel they are less likely to break when coloring this way.

After coloring with pencils, I added a few white gel pen and Spica glitter pen details then cut the kraft card with a Stitched Rectangle. I paired the panel with a happy green patterned paper from the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day range. I stamped a sentiment from the Forest Friends set in Versafine Onyx Black ink and die cut with a Basic Banner and then added all the elements to a side folding white card base with foam adhesive. As a finishing touch I added a few Robin’s Egg sequins.
