Coloring on Craft cardstock

Hi ladies,

Today I have a tutorial on coloring on craft cardstock.
I think coloring on craft looks great, you have a beautiful brown background.
For my tutorial I colored with Derwent Pencils.

Step 1: I start with coloring the face and cheeks. I use 550 for the face.

Step 2.. I start with coloring the hat, jeans and her scarf.. as you can see I only put a little bit of coloring on it! I fade the colors with odorless turpentine.

Step 3.. here you can see the blue colors faded and I will do the same with the pink colour.

Step 4.. awesome with coloring on craft is that you can put a white colour on your images. For the fur I used a white pencil and for her shoes and belt black.

Step 5.. here are all colours faded and I created a little bit of shading behind the image.

Hope you like it and I love to hear if you tried coloring on craft cardstock!
Hugs, Marley
