Prismacolour Practice!!

Thursday's Ways to Use It Challenge on SCS was to use your pencils.....watercolour pencils, metallic pencils, Prismacolour pencils..... And since I've been using my markers so much lately, I decided to play with my Prismas and get some practice using them.

I grabbed the new SU stamp set, Jesus is Born, which hadn't even touched ink yet, and stamped it on shimmery white cardstock with Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink. The patterned paper I used is by Daisy D's, so I used that as my jumping off point. Now, I don't have a LOT of Prisma pencils as they are quite expensive, so I don't have a lot of colours to choose from, so I sort of have to make due. I coloured in the image using a variety of pencils and blending them with my Odorless Mineral Spirits and blending stumps. Then I sponged around the edges of the main piece using Creamy Caramel and a cosmetic sponge. I matted it on Soft Sky cardstock. The card base is River Rock with a layer of SS and then the patterned paper. I distressed the last two layers using my distressing tool, then added a photo turn and a ribbon slider from the Hodgepodge hardware kit along with some of the new SS double stitched grosgrain ribbon. The finishing touch was the sentiment from the set, Christmas Blessings, which fits in the Word Window Punch!!

Hey, guess what??? I ordered a new KOOL TOOL last week and I finally got to play with it last night!! I made a really awesome project with it and I can't wait to make more!! Check back tomorrow and I will post some pics of what I made!! Can YOU guess what tool I got??????

Beautiful card Kim. I love the colours and the colouring, so soft and pretty. Very different shades for a Christmas card, but awesome! nd

Looks like you are doing so well with your Prismacolor pencils! I am trying to figure out Copic's versus Prismacolor pens! The original Copic is the one I am lkeaning toward today! LOL Deb

Very pretty card, Kimmie! You come up with some very fabulous ideas!!

I wanted to invite you to look at my blog - I mentioned you!! But I also wanted you to see that I colored with my markers (the picture is horrible) and I am so happy with the results.

Oh yeah! I got to finally visit a Recollections store yesterday. I bought some of the Tres Jolie paper you used in your tutorial. Love it!!!
