This rugged but cute kit is all cut out for you but you will need to do some paper tearing. We used Colorbox Dark Brown, Blackbird and Chestnut Roan for the edges. You can use Prima inks if you desire. We used dry chalk for the cheeks and other smudges. We used thin Black gel pen(Pentel .05) for outlining and White gel pen(Uni-ball) for the highlights. Pop-dots were also used on this layout.
