Squidgy Dino Trick or Treater Card

He’s so cute! I gave him a little glow from the open doorway. Looks like he’s on his first stop of the night.

Stamps Used: Squidgy Dino Trick or Treater, Fall Sentiment Set

I stamped the image on kraft card before colouring using Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. I’ve been using a new and cheaper kraft coloured card in my last few coloured pencil posts. I wanted to see how well it would perform, and honestly I’m not in love. Hopefully I can get hold of some other papers I’ve had my eye on, as I’m still searching for a real favourite. This one worked okay, but it doesn’t really have enough “tooth”to be able to layer as much as I would like, or to achieve the coverage I’m looking for without using solvent.

    Love this stamp and it’s in my stash. I’ve always used copic to color but I’m intrigued by your coloring, I just might have to add pencils to my stash.
