Holidays in Kraft (And Colored Pencil) + Discount Code

Kraft + colored pencils are magic together, so I decided to focus on those for really almost a month. It takes me a long time to color, and so I started working on these in July and wanted to present a whole fall/winter tour using the same warm foundation with pencils to show you how much I love this combo. You can get 10% off everything I use by shopping with this link and using code UNDERSTANDBLUE.

So because I love Halloween the most, let's start there. Sorry - MEOWLOWEEN with this adorable kitty! I stamped her on this kraft (that I'm hoarding) and colored her with these colored pencils

I took another panel of the same kraft, and I partially stamped this brick background stamp in Warm Cocoa for a distressed brick background. Then I masked off the bottom part and ink blended it for  little sidewalk I could put my kitty on. I used the die to create the shadow in the background and highlighted the bricks with a white pencil.                                           

Then I skipped ahead to Christmas with this poinsettia stamp on the same kraft cardstock. See how no matter what colors you are using they glow on kraft? That's because I always start with a white layer.

I skipped back to fall and school starting with this kraft colored card, but the pencil coloring this time was done on a chalkboard green cardstock so I could stamp this little owl in white and have it look super realistic. 

As a former teacher, I endorse this message. It's really true. I used this paper for the background and used the same pencils for the sweet owl.
