2 Pencils

Hi All,

A bit different from me today, no alcohol, LOL!!!! Yes no markers, I have coloured up this Saturated Canary image up using a 9B pencil, paper stump and putty rubber, and I added a touch of colour using a prisma pencil.

I have used up some really old papers that have been lurking in my stash forever, have stamped up a sentiment from papermania, added a little washi tape, and a few die cut flowers and butterflies.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Bunny Zoe - One for the girls

PTW - Anything goes
City Crafter - Washi tape
Clear it out - Anything Goes
Penny's paper crafts - One 4 the girls
