My Favorite Flower

These cards are what did it...they made me fall in love with Prisma pencils! I had a difficult time with the pencils, then it just clicked! This was also a fun set to make as I tried some without coloring them and I liked them all just the same.



Stamps: Gerbera Daisy (TAC), Upsy Daisy (SU), Script BG (SU)
Paper: Very Vanilla (SU), Juliette (TAC)
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber, Creamy Caramel, Cat's Eye Chestnut, Basic Brown (SU)
Accessories: Juliette Ribbon (TAC)

This was the first time I masked an image and I LOVED it! I need to get some of that super big post-it note stuff so I can do this more easily next time. :)

We are back from Sapporo...and thawed enough so I can type again! I hope to get our pictures uploaded soon; the snow sculptures were AMAZING!
Thanks for looking!

Wow both cards look great! You're lucky you can color in the lines- I still haven't learned that skill.
