I woke up this morning and got a text from my auntie, one of her friends had bought a grand caliber, and has decided that it is not really for her, and so wants to sell it, anyway to cut a long story short, I got 1st refusal so I got the machine and all the plates for £70! I am so so excited I have wanted one for ages, and I didn't think it would be a possibility for a while as we have prams and cots e.c.t to buy. Hubby said I could get it as it was such a good deal!! whooooo hooooo!!!!!
On Tuesday I was confined to my bed, again unable to move due to sickness, I watched endless tutorials on youtube for colouring with prismacolor pencils ..... after that I was itching to get started, however one thing I did learn was that you needed a decent pencil sharpener, so before I wrecked all my pencils with the really naff one that I have I decided to order the prismacolor one. Some of my friends popped into see me today and were here when my pencil sharpener arrived, They thought it was hilarious, and I received comments like "only you could get excited about a pencil sharpener!!" ........ so I sat and sharpened all my pencils - they are a new purchase so only a couple of them had been sharpened, then I was just desperate to have a play!!
My blending solution has not yet arrived ( thanks girls for giving me the tip about cuddly buddly) however there was loads of tutorials on blending using the pencils only ..... So the card above is my attempt! I still need a lot of practice but I am fairly happy with the results. The image is a digi from "Saturated Canary - Peggy Sue" The Paris image is " The Montage collection - Santa Rose" and the little butterfly is " Marij Rahder - Suzy 2 " and the papers are "echo park paper"
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Penny's Papercraft - Anything Goes
Crafts and Me - Flowers
Charisma Cards - Love
Fussy and Fancy - Try a new technique (coloring with Prismacolor pencils)
