What a Loot

Well, I’m back to birthday cards!  We had an entire week in August where we had a birthday every day, and even two on one day!

Birthday Cards-196

My image from this card is from Whimsy Stamps, What A Loot.  I thought it was so cute!  For this card, I used my Polychromo Colored Pencils.  I have listed the colors I used at the bottom of this post.  I’m really liking using pencils on kraft card stock.

After coloring my image, I used my stitched oval die to cut it out.  I added some fun foam to the back of my image to pop it up a bit.

Birthday Cards-197

My sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp, It’s No Secret.  I added some Nuvo drops in Silver Lining, Caribbean Ocean, and White.

And that was my card for today.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is an adorable image and your colouring is just wonderful! I have some coloured pencils, but not ones I particularly enjoy using… I keep seeing good things being done with the Polychromos though, so I may have to invest in some.

  2. Ohhhh Nancee this one is just too perfect.
    You’re SO good at colouring up these images, and the use of the Tonic drops brings the whole thing together.

    In my (self appointed) position of Awardist – I award you the medal of Colourist Supreme 🥇 because you’re brilliant!

  3. Really love that cheeky chappie, he’s brilliant. Lovely card, and your colouring is amazing as always. Oh… you inspired me to start using my Nuvo Crystal drops I have had since February and not used, now I love them and have just ordered more colours! Thank You 🙂

      1. I once saw a bookmark which said ‘there is no such thing as too many books… There is, however, such a thing as not enough space’. It translates perfectly to crafty toys, too.

        I made the choice right at the beginning to use Spectrum Noir, and although I really like them, I kind of regret it. I find all the magazines I’ve seen, blogs I’ve read and how to colour videos focus on Copics
