Coloring on Kraft Cardstock

Hey, everyone! Roree here with a Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing a card I created using a the Puppy Talk stamp set from Dare 2B Artzy and colored pencils from Faber-Castell.

I love the look of colored images on kraft cardstock, so I wanted to try it for myself.

I started by stamping the dog image from the Puppy Talk set on Kraft cardstock and colored the areas where I wanted highlights with the white pencil. I used the darker brown pencil around the outside areas of the dog and colored with the lighter brown pencil over the areas I colored white.

I finished by coloring the small details like the collar, added the stamped sentiment and paw, and added the stamped panel to my card front.

The coloring was so fun and I plan on practicing more and more to perfect my technique.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project using these fun products. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    What’s surprising to me is more company don’t carry Kraft Colored cardstock? It’s a beautiful paper to color on. Roree, you did a wonderful job of coloring him. I love this card! Thanks for sharing!

    Super cute. I love stamping and coloring. Coloring dogs or other animals on craft paper looks like the browns would be easier.
