Dinosaur Birthday

Hi Everyone,
Hope you all are well and happy today, I have just finished a card for my great nephews 5th birthday, and I am a little over excited about it as it’s the first time I have coloured an image with just pencils, now I know it’s not perfect but I think I am getting there. Normally I would use a combination of copic markers and prisma pencils, but today it’s just the prisma pencils ( I will list the colours I used at the end of this post ).
Dinosaur Birthday
Isn’t he the cutest dinosaur you have ever seen! I got him from Whimsy stamps and he is called Thunder Lizzy by Crissy Armstrong you can get him HERE. For the DP I used Nit Wit Collections Jungle Zoo Too, I thought those leaves looked like a place a dinosaur would be, but then again I am no expert on dinosaurs lol.
Crissy has a challenge on at the moment with the theme K.I.S.S which means Keep It Simple Stamper and I thought this card suited that for a little boy who loves dinosaurs.
InsideI have done the inside to match the front, the brads are from Kaisercraft and the ribbon is from my stash.
Close upHere is a close up, I sponged around the image with Memento Summer Sky.
Prisma Pencils used – Crimson Red, Black, True Blue, Pink Rose, Sienna Brown, Grass Green, Burnt Orche, Peach Beige, Apple Green.
I would like to enter the following challenge
Sundays with Crissy Challenge #20  - K.I.S.S – Keep It Simple Stamper
Before I go I just wanted to mention Dana’s Blog, I have been following Dana for awhile now and she has lots of great info and tutorials on colouring with pencils and copics. You can check her blog HERE , if it wasn’t for Dana’s tutorials I would probably still be in a muddle with my colours lol.
Hope you all have a great day, thanks for stopping by and all the wonderful comments you leave me. I appreciate them very much.
Big Hugs
