way to go

hi everyone
popping in tonight with my completed kit and clowder pencil class project for June.
this months class show you how to add special effects to your projects including how to create the glow around the planets and the night sky. 
for this class I have decided to go with one of my own images: 
Astronaut (rubber stamp retired) by Lili of the valley.
I just love the end result.
I have to add colouring with pencils is so different to using copies or distress ink but I have loved the challenge and here is my finished project

I'm looking forward to next months pencil class.

special wishes

good morning crafty friends
poping in with a quickish post for today.
a cute card using my newly acquired prismacolor pencils (cheeky break from the colouring class) and I have coloured up Mermaid 1 from lili of the valley
 she is so adorable
and I've added a few die cut embellies (magnolia) and some embossing powder.

I am currently doing this months pencil class over at Kit and Clowder and thought I could brave it and use my grandchildrens colouring pencils

and realised that I needed the right stuff so I searched the internet and found a site in the uk that sell prisma and other brands of pencils: (prompt service too) and now I just need a sharpener and then I can crack on and complete this months class.

all it leaves me to say now is:
have a lovely day, enjoy and craft happy. Ann
thanks for stopping by.
