Hey... I have a card to share!

Haha... yes, I have something to share with you. It does sometimes rather sporadic at times and I just have to say that its been hard for me to keep up. Just wait until the end of the month though... talk about a blitz... just wait and don't say I didn't warn you!

But today is a card that I made to specifically play with my Prisma colored pencils. I don't have a huge assortment of colors, but recently I've been enamored with Dawn's (My Stamping Thyme) use of them on her images and I wanted to play.

So, I have OMS (Odorless Mineral Spirits) and when I asked Dawn what she used she told me she used Goo Gone... hmmm??? well, I didn't have any Goo Gone, but I do have Goof Off. Now here is the deal. My hubby says that all these liquids have one or more things in common, but they point is that they are all solvents and you know what? They all work! I liked how my Goof Off worked, but the kicker is of course that those are very stinky and chemically, but if you can handle odors, try what you have on hand. Needless to say it was kind of fun to test.

Now you also need to know that I didn't use just Prismas... I did use 2 copic markers. The first one was for the skin because I don't have anything resembling skin in a colored pencil and the 2nd is a light blue for around my image. I love being able to combine these different coloring mediums like this.

Image is from Pink Cat Studio and is part of the Billy line... so terribly cute and the paper is October Afternoon (I believe... I won't stake my life on it and I'm too lazy to go double check.)

Thanks for "hopping" on by and enjoy the rest of your day.

Haha, Katie, you are too hilarious! I'm usually always too lazy to get up and check what paper I'm using, lol. Your card is adorable, and I've recently been taking a stab at Prismas. (I used a 40% off coupon at Michael's. . .shhhh)

Really cute card! Great coloring too. I can never get my prismas to blend nicely so you will have to tell your secret.
