Doodling with Debby: Spring Pencil Coloring on Kraft

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is starting out well so far! As always, I’m delighted to welcome back the forever fabulous Debby Hughes back for her latest installment of Doodling with Debby on our blog! Be sure to watch the video and enjoy!

Debby's Doodles

Hello, it’s Debby here for my monthly Doodling With Debby video feature here on the Simon Says Stamp blog. Today I’m coloring with pencils a sweet springtime scene using the Showers & Flowers stamp set.

Doodling with Debby: Spring Pencil Coloring on Kraft

I love the look of pencils on kraft card, and I think the kraft card on this occasion adds a lovely homely feeling to this springtime scene. I stamped the welly boots image from the Showers & Flowers set in clear embossing ink, then cut a mask from Inkadinkadoo Stamping Mask paper and then stamped the rabbit as if he’s sitting behind the boots. We have two white rabbits, and I can fully believe that this cutie has been up to mischief and knocked over the flower-filled welly boot!

I colored the scene with Prismacolor pencils. I mainly used three shades of pencil for each color along with a white pencil for highlights.

When the coloring was finished, I added white gel pen details for the polka dots on the boots and also to add a few highlights to the flowers. I also darkened the eye of the rabbit with a black glaze pen.

For the sentiment, I stamped the ‘Thanks’ from the Showers & Flowers set in clear embossing ink, sprinkled with white embossing powder and then heat set. I also stamped a coordinating sentiment from the Thanks stamp set on Surf Blue card and white heat embossed before trimming to a banner.

I cut the kraft panel with a Wonky Rectangle die and foam mounted on a Neenah Solar White card base. I also foam mounted the Surf Blue sentiment and then finally added a trio of Sweet Shop sequins to finish.

Thanks for joining me today and I’ll see you next time for Doodling With Debby.
