Look no Copics.. I colored with Prisma pencils

Hi to you all.  I have finally got all the kids stuff ready for school tomorrow.  Well.tonight I wanted to share with you something different that you have never seen from me.  I colored with my Prismacolor Pencils,can you believe it.. NO COPICS.  I was having so much fun coloring that I just kept coloring images.  And believe it or not I didn't even touch my Copics at all, all weekend.

For my card I used and image by Penny Johnson called "Snuggles"

  Hopefully you can click on the pic to enlarge to see more detail.

And here is more of what I colored, but I have not made cards with them yet. I haven't felt good this weekend so I climbed up in bed and just colored away, until I got tired.
This image is a Wags n' Whiskers stamp called "Ride, em Ryan" available HERE. All of my images were stamped and colored on cheap Kraft paper from Michael's Craft Store.

I only used pencils, not OMS or blender pencil.  I used my pencils to blend the dark and lighter colors.
This next stamp is another Wag's n' Whiskers stamp called "Angel Whispers".  I have had both of these stamps from Wag's n' Whiskers for way over a year and I just stamped them this weekend.  And believe me I have more that I have never stamped and digi's that I have never printed.  It's called Gotta Have it All... he,he.

Okay one more.. this one is one of the newest images available from "The Greeting Farm", called Babette, from there new Blush collection.

Well I told you it was something different.  I hope you like them.  If you have never checked out Annika's blog aka Another Messy Crafter coloring on kraft card stock with Prisma's you have got to check her out, here is her tutorial link HERE.  She is awesome!!
 Thanks Annika for your awesome tutorial.
Anyway I am off to bed as I have to get up even earlier tomorrow to get the kids ready for school. I hope you had a get weekend and thanks for stopping by and looking.

I will post the cards I make with these images when I get them done. Just wanted to share them with you now.

Annika said...

omg, you ROCK Prismas, girl! I am totally jealous of how you did the hair - abso-freakin-lutely lush!
And isn't it just fabulously easy and FUN!? I just feel myself getting more and more distanced from Copics sometimes now and I am itching to try out some other coloured pencils too!!! lol

Theresa said...

Beautifully done!! I would love to watch you color with both Prismas and Copic. Please do a video. Your coloring is amazing. When I grow up I want to color just like you.

Wow Angela, that coloring is AMAZING!
I used to color a lot with pencils, but never anything close to that good. I will check out the tutorial. Thanks for always being so open and sharing. I can't believe kids are heading back to school already. Hope you feel better soon, my tummy had me up for most of the night. And I think I have that Gotta Have It All Disease too. LOL

My friend you are sooo talented! I can not believe how beautiful each and everyone of these it. I love how you are able to get so much from pencils. Just GORGEOUS! I hope you are feeling better and that the kids had a great time at school. Mine start on the 28th and I hate it. I love having them at home and I really dread school more than they do. lol...I know I am weird, but I do love having them home. Hope you have a great Sunday. Hugs, Lisa
