Creating Backgound for Cards using Gelatos & Paper Crafter Crayons
Coloring with Art Grip pencils

Trick or Treat


Hi, it’s Jill  here with a quick and fun card featuring our Art Grip Color Pencils.  I began by coloring directly onto my stamp using a black (#199) Stamper’s Big Brush Pen and then stamping it onto white cardstock.  Next, I mixed and matched a few of my favorite colors of Art Grip Color Pencils to color my image.  Here’s a look at the pencil/color numbers used for each portion of my image.


When coloring with the Art Grip Color Pencils, I start with the lightest color first, then add the medium color and finally the darkest.  And to finish everything off, I color heavily using the lightest color. 

Once you are done coloring, just add a bit of washi tape and a sentiment and you’re ready to trick or treat… hugs and happy stamping!
