Maria Wins


Ok, Maria (Crafty Creations) wins!!! I've been trying to learn to color with Copics....sometimes I do ok and sometimes, not! After mentioning I only had a few Copics, Maria sent me about 5 or 6 of hers saying she didn't use them and I could have them!!! How sweet was that!! The reason she said she didn't need them is because she colors most of her images in Prismapencils. Now if you want to see some pretty coloring go check out her site!!!

Anyway, after seeing what she does with the Prismapencils, I decided to ATTEMPT to start coloring more with them ........ and colored this little image that way. So, Maria, you win...and I'm going to start using them more again!!! I still need ALOT of practice - but maybe someday I'll get the hang of it.

The image is from Designed2Delight for the progressive challenge. Isn't this little bear "sew" beary cute! If you didn't get the image by playing in the progressive challenge, you can still order it. This is also for the Double Delight Challenge - to sew on your card using this image.
Almost forget!
Thanks to everyone who selected card number 1 or 2 on the previous post. It ended pretty well in a "tie".........so I guess I'll just have to select one - or maybe do like Susan said, and send both and let him choose!

Thanks for stopping by..............

Sew pretty, you did a great job with your pencils, one of my preferred as well, I try copics but love my crayons and pencils. The card is just so cute and perfect for a granddaughter maybe? Have a great day.

Lynn, I haven't used prismas... I need to go check out the link. I color with just about everything else.
I love this card. The image is so adorably - and beautifully colored, of course! Even with the fabulous daisy, the bear manages to be the star of the show. Gorgeous!

Oh Lynn - you are too sweet! Thanks for the shout outs! I'm so happy the copics found a happy home in yours instead of drying out in a drawer in my room!!!

The card is terrific!!! Keep on working with the pencils! I email you a few links to awesome pencil color bloggers and check out the link on SCS "Techniques" for prisma pencils. LOTS of reading there!!!
Thank you again - you are too sweet :)

This is so adorable. I like how you tied in both the flowers and stitching from the image onto your card. Very pink and very pretty.

I can't get the hang of either copics or prismas/gamsol. They both frustrate me and crafting is supposed to be fun. That is why I stick to my markers or watercolor pencils.
