First attempt with prismas!

I've been playing with my new prisma pencils today - I absolutely love them :o)  This is my first image coloured with them...



I'm fairly happy with this for a first try... still figuring all the colours out and it's certainly not perfect, but they're lovely to use.  The gorgeous image is Louie and present from DigiStamp Boutique and the papers are all scraps from a Forever Friends pad.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes for yesterday!  I had a nice day - some lovely cards and pressies, and a yummy takeaway and wine with hubby in the evening.  Today I popped to Hobbycraft to try and spend some of my birthday pennies, but I didn't buy much, just foam pads and sansador... might put it in my account and spend it online instead lol.  Right, off to try and catch up with you all now :o)

Gorgeous card, Lisa. Your colouring is fabulous; Prismas are so smooth to use, aren't they? I love them, but have to work much harder than with Copics to get a smooth finish (probably need to get a bigger range of shades) so I use them for "special" cards. You've mastered it straight off the bat, well done you! Donna xx

Kathleen said...
