Knight In Shining Armor

Hello All,

Another simple card from me today ..... This is me playing with my new prisma pencils ( a last treat before the baby comes, and we have to spend all our money on it instead, I got some pencils and hubby got an i pod ) I am still practicing with them, unfortunately as yet I have not got any blending solution, so I am having to do my best without .... I cant seem to source any locally, the art shop hadn't even heard of it !!!!!!! and tried to give me a promarker blending pen, honestly!!! So I will have to have a look online. The image is " Krafting Kimmie"

This is my entry for:

Truley scrumptious - C&S
Allsorts - keep it simple

I also want to thank everyone for their help re the malware warning, I had to remove a blog from my bloglist, for the person who's blog it is I am really sorry, its nothing personal! I have been informed this morning that its working, so yay!!!

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls

  9. First of all I've been looking around your blog; I've been away too long. Congrats on your pregnancy! I hope you will feel better soon and that you are able to enjoy the upcoming months! It's such a special and beautiful time of your life. Take good care of yourself and the little one :)

  11. I've seen one or two people having the malware problem, so frustrating but glad you've got it sorted. Gorgeous card, love clean and simple and you do it so well :)

  12. No problems tonight Juls:) Loving your gorgeous card. If you have any baby oil you can use that to blend your pencils, try it on scraps first though. Bet it will smell lovely:)

  13. fantastic card juls,the cas design is stunning and i love the fab image :D

    xx coops xx

  14. Wonderful card Juls, I think you color beautifully even without the blending medium! Love the bit of grass at his feet and the border around the card, very cool!

  15. fantastic cas card Juls, I love your knight...I have heard a few people using baby oil for blending and lets face it you will have to buy some soon anyway lol...hope it works for you

  16. this is such a cute image! i have prismacolor pencils (are they the same thing?) and i use them all the time. i didn't even know there was a blending solution. thanks for sharing!

  17. Hi sorry this is going to be a quick one - am supposed to be making breakfast! - try the Kars blending fluid from Cuddly Bunny. Its an odourless white spirit blending, that's where I get mine and the blending stumps as well. Great card - love the image! Sarah

  18. Hi Juls

    What a fabby card. Your pencils look great.

    A super fun image and great sentiment too!

    The doodles finish it all of beautifully.

    Pleased you managed to sort your computer out and good luck with the blending solution.

    Love Jules xx

  21. Love the simple design, great card. But not sure if he'd be my type of Maybe if it was Brad!

  22. Very nice card! Great job! Olena

  23. so sweet and simple. perfect for any guy. Congrats on the expected new bundle, I hadn't heard this yet! So very excited for you.

  24. Hi Juls :o) Sarah got there before me - I was also going to recommend Cuddly Buddly for the odourless spirit and they're good for paper stumps too.

    Love your card, such a great CAS design and fab image! Lisa x

  25. Wonderful card and a beautiful job coloring with these pencils.

    Hugs and Love.

  26. Juls, LOVE this knight and that FAB sentiment! Your coloring is so perfect and it's so GREAT you have new goodies to play with! Enjoy these creative quiet moments!

  27. Fantastic card sweetie..great image & sentiment!
    Hope your well!!
    hugs and xxx

  28. This looks great! I have heard that the blending solution is basically paint thinner, and that many people just buy that at the hardware store. Then all you need is the blending stump, but of course you may want to wait until you aren't carrying a little bundle.

  29. Gorgeous coloring, fun to have a little treat before the baby comes! Love the CAS layout, really shows off the image.

  30. I really appreciate the way you write. In short, Your detailed description is great. I am happy to find your distinguished way of writing the post. Now you make it easy for me to understand and implement.
