Happy Thursday! If you stopped by on Monday then you know todays cards are the Polychromos Pencil version of those cards. If you missed that post do yourself a favor and buzz back and check it out. You can find it on the sidebar and also by clicking older posts at the bottom of the page.
I have really been enjoying honing my pencil skills. I have about 5 different full sets, and believe me they are all a bit different and I don’t have a favorite …yet!
I used the Nuvo Drops in Bottle Green with the Pink Flowers. I love how the pencil makes the petals look textured.
Nuvo Drops In Autumn Pearl for the yellow. This one is my favorite.
I used the Poppy Parade card stock for the smile. See how nice the three layers look!
I went with the Pear Pizzaz again with the yellow. The dots on my smile are actually the punch out from the bottom of the s, the real dot was too small for me to try and layer!
