Paper Doll Castle – Coloring with Sandy Allnock

Hello and Happy January, everyone! Can you believe it’s already 2017??

Sandy Allnock

I’m Sandy Allnock, and I’m back with another of my monthly installments of Create in Color! (Click HERE to see the others!) Last month a number of folks asked for colored pencil, and a few asked for the Magic Colored Pencil Technique. Your wish is granted! I chose some really darling stamps with a true fantasy element to them. And a set of dies that you can use to build a custom castle of your own design!

The castle was fun to design! I didn’t use all the parts in the die set, but you can try cutting them all out and arranging them until you come up with a structure you like! Note that this project could be a card like I made it to be, or it could be a gift for a child who loves playing with paper fantasy toys!

I used Prismacolor Pencils for my coloring, though you can color with any medium you like. If you choose pencil, you can leave it as plain pencil or get a blending stub and some baby oil to blend the color! (The pencil numbers I used: 923, 1022, 932, 907, 1096, 1082, 947, 1002, 921, 1013, 1092)

The little princess is feeding flowers to her stable of ponies…

And the little knight has a bedazzled helmet! His enemies won’t be able to see him during battle since the sunlight will be twinkling off all that shimmer.

A ferocious dragon will guard the castle or perhaps draw some angry eyebrows on him so the knight has someone to fight!

To get the creatures to stand up, a second die cut is glued just at the top. I made a little score line on each one so the two pieces separate and make the figures stand on their own.

The glitter was added to Glossy Accents. You could also just let the shiny coating add to the images without using glitter, but… why not, right?

Thanks so much for joining me for this little magical project! As always, let me know if you’ve got a suggestion for a medium to use in February! And by all means join me over on my blog to get lots more education on all kinds of mediums!
