Ahoy There...

Good Morning...

What better way to spend a wet and blustery Sunday than making and blogging!  It is currently so wet in Beckford that we could very well soon be in need of a lighthouse like the one on today's card!

I went on a bit of a 'pencil' flight of fancy when I made today's card; I remained totally sensible with my choice of gorgeous Tiddly Inks Digi - Light My Life; 
I had already decided to go CAS and then... 
I used my Prismacolor pencils in earnest for the first time ever...dreamland or what!  I decided to go for it and use the same colouring method I use with copics, colouring dark to light and respecting the shade... (hopefully)

Anyway, I have to say a big thank you to Jen Nelson at The Tiny Blue Butterfly for being so inspirational.  I saw some colouring Jen had done with Prisma's and really fell in love with it. 

So, today's card is a Tiddly Inks digital image - Light my Life, printed direct to the card and recklessly coloured in with Prismacolor pencils.  I finished off with two strips of card from the Carte bella 'Ahoy There' range and some red and white bakers twine with a sailing ship charm.

so 'me hearties', today's card, here we have it...

Gorgeous card, and I think you've mastered those pencils! I agree with you on the blustery day activities too. Best to stay indoors in the warm and dry, and get colouring!
