Oh, sorry, wine does that.

I am so excited to share this card with you today! It is a new to me technique of coloring with Prismacolor pencils on Kraft paper inspired by Tara Sell of Curl E Cue's blog post from Friends With Flair 2 weeks ago. Her project was so pretty and Prismacolor pencils were one of the very first craft related purchases I EVER made! Seriously, I was in college, not even started with scrapbooking or cardmaking yet but I needed to color something for an assignment and got a set of them and after that I started drawing handmade cards for my husband (we were only just dating at the time), and although they were what first got me started in the crafting world they have been severely neglected since then.

And so here is my card and I love it because although the colors didn't blend or turn out at all like I wanted them to at first I just kept adding colors and coloring on top of colors until eventually I was pleased with it. There are not a whole lot of coloring mediums you can do that with.


The stamps I used are all from Unity Stamp Company, Miranda Girl and Sorry, Wine Does That. I colored the twine by spraying two different colors of Dylusions ink onto my craft mat and soaking it around in it. The charm is also an oldy, bought when I very first got into scrapbooking.

I am entering this into the Unity {be inspired} color challenge.
                                                                           
I am linking this to Simon Says Stamp Something New challenge as a new technique.
I am also linking it to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #8: Something New for the New Year.

I hope this inspires you in some way to try something new!

Happy Crafting,

Crystal
