My Prismas are here!

Woo-hoo! Straight from the wild and wonderful Americaland they popped up on my doorstep this week.

I've been wanting to play with them for a LONG time and after waiting all that time I still had forgotten to get blending stumps ... so another couple of days of delay (which gave me some time to sharpen all 120 pencils, still have a blister to show for it ... ouch).

BUT Yesterday I finally had all the supplies and happily inked up a 'lil butterfly chaser boy from Magnolia spring kit. I think he's totally adorable, the whole kit is sooo yummy this time around!

I have a lot of practicing to do with my Prismacolour pencils but I like the soft blended results.

The card itself is for Friday Sketchers challenge (and for my mother in law, oops).

Used K & Co Wild Saffron stack which I've bee hoarding for a while, I think it really works well here!
Materials used:

Main image: Magnolia

Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad & Prismacolour pencils, metallic rub-ons.

K & Co Wild Saffron papers.

Sentiments: Melissa Frances rub-on & Aud Design stamp.

Signo Uniball white pen for faux stitching.
