Good morning, another beautiful day.
It's put me in the mood for 'Spring cleaning'! A little late I know, but what do you think of the new look?
I thought it was time for a change as things were looking a little tired around here, and I'm not sure if this is 'it'........you know 'it', as in do I love 'it', or I just can't be bothered to change the whole blog design again type of 'it'? We'll see how things go, but for now, I like 'it'!
Well today's post is a card, and as the title suggests, the Prisma pencils have made their comfy little way into my clumsy paws. Oh how I love them! Every time I use them these days, it's like I've forgotten how awesome they are to work with, but today they are especially my friend. The reason why.........black hair!
Need I say more? Don't get me wrong, I love my Copic's too, but when I tackle the slightly trickier tasks of let's say BLACK HAIR (which I do quite enjoy with Copic's as it's a challenge that get's the juices flowing!), Prisma's are just so........easy! They do the job for you, and all with just one colour no less........BLACK!
Anyhow, enough waffling, I guess I should post the card.
Wow look at that.....it even co-ordinates with the new blog look perfectly.....happy coincidence!
This card has a combination of 3 of my favourites:
#1. You may have guessed already from the previous hints....Prisma Pencils, and I guess I should mention the other half of the dynamic duo....Odourless Colourless Mineral Spirits.
#2. Another awesome digital image from Saturated Canary. Every one of Krista's images inspires me to create pretty things.
#3. Authentique paper. The quality of this stuff is second to none and I'm officially now a hoarder. I can't wait for the next collection to be released, even though I have the previous 5 sitting untouched. Can't help it ....it's just so pretty, I want it all!
Here's a little close up of the colouring deets for ya............
Lot's of little extra bits and pieces on here, some vintage, some modern. Distress inks, torn edges, border punch, lace, ribbon, pearls, and those rolled fowers are made using a Dienamics die and a couple of different shades of canvas I had lying around.
Well that's about it from me for today.
I'm going out to enjoy the sushine and my last day of freedom...........it's the last day of school ya know........need I say more?!!
Have a good one and I'll see you soon,
