In love with my Prisma pencils ...

I think I have found my colouring medium of choice ... Prisma pencils. I can just get carried away colouring and blending is slowly becoming easier. Adore how they can look smooth one minute or textured the next and mistakes are easily hidden. However do also fancy those Prisma pens now and think I'll have to start saving ...

Here's my quick colouring session for tonight which is a cute Saturated Canary image, "Ivy", which I have printed off in draft to make the lines lighter.


I'm not sure where the papers are from as they were in my scrap box.  I also cut the flowers using up some other scraps too with a Spellbinders die I received as a birthday present. The butterflies in the background is a Tonic die which I have cut twice ... die courtesy of my mum.


Sentiment is from an old wooden stamp I found in the back of a drawer that I have had for eons but hardly use. Quite like the font so who knows it might be used more often now but then again ...

Right better get myself organised for tomorrow as it is a busy day.
