Spotlight on Pencils

This week on Crafty Cardmakers the spotlight falls on Coloured Pencils - that's right you need to ditch the Promarkers & Copics for this one and dust down those poor forgotten pencils! Our sponsor this week is Derwent who have provided a fab set of 12 Inktense pencils for our lucky winner!

If you stop by my blog regularly you will know that since I discovered Promarkers I rarely use anything else to colour my images but I have coloured today's card using only pencils - the ones I used are my very much neglected Prismacolour set and I have blended them with the Prismacolour blender. I could do with a bit more practice with the pencils and haven't yet tried the current trend of using a mix of Promarkers and pencils but planning to try that out very soon!
The image is LOTV, the backing paper Dovecraft, sentiment Stampin Up and the flowers Petaloo.

Entering these challenges:
Catch The Bug - Birthday
Fairy Fun Fridays  - Happy birthday
Sew Many Cards - Birthday
Totally Papercrafts - Birthday
Sisterhood of Crafters - Birthday 
Dutch Dare - All stitched up
