Fun Dragon Kid's Card

I recently was lucky enough to win some digi stamps from Bugaboo.  I haven't used a lot of digi stamps in the past, but I took the opportunity to get some that would be great for kids, since I really think they excel at those types of images.  

Click on photos to enlarge.
I printed this guy out on some kraft paper and colored him with inktense pencils.  I recently got a few new colors of pencils so I have more to work with.  I did blend out with a tiny bit of water, but I am not sure how much that did on kraft paper.  I definitely could use more practice with my pencils, but I liked how it turned out.   I used a stamp from a clear set for the sentiment.


Supplies: Bugaboo Clyde birthday digi, Casual Fridays In the Cards stamp set, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Crate Paper Party Day 6x6 paper pad, Avery Elle Wonky Rectangles die set, Derwent Inktense pencils

I would love to participate in these challenges:
Darnell's NBUS Challenge
Tuesday Morning Sketches #386
Bugaboo Birthday Bash - make a card for a kiddo
