So, you get some ramblings before the card.
I got a package in the mail yesterday … it was the 120 Prismacolor pencil set, some Gamsol and some paper stumps (all bought from Dick Blick). I was so excited.
A few months ago Kathi (over at Kathi’s Corner posted that she had purchased all these products. Ever since then I’ve been contemplating purchasing them. The Gamsol is used to help blend the colors. I played a little last night with them, but think I need a lot more practice. I’ve never been that great at coloring in stamps, so I’m hoping that with practice I can get the look that I’m looking for. I’ll post some of my progress this weekend!
On to my Guest Artist! One of the reasons I wanted to get the new pencil set was because of the Bella stamps, and some of these stamps … Magnolia’s! They are all the rage on the European blogs, and I’m starting to see them crop up over here in the US/Canada as well. Well, my Mom has fallen in love with them and has now ordered twice from them. The second time (just a couple of weeks ago) I had her throw in a few for me. She got them today, so I should be getting mine in a few days. I’m looking forward to playing with them!!!
Anyway, she’s had some for awhile, and her card that I’m posting was made with one of the Erwin’s (sorry I don’t know which one). She’s been making some very cute cards with them!!! Enjoy!
