I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Thanks A Lot

Hello and Happy Monday evening all,

I'm back in the Los Angeles area for the week for work. Santa Monica to be exact. If one must work in Los Angeles, Santa Monica is not all that bad of a place.

I have another of the challenge cards that I made on Saturday. This one for the Sunday Stamps color challenge. I've used the super cute Paper Smooches set called Best Buds. The flower image is stamped using Memento Tuxedo black onto X-Press It Blending card stock and colored with my brand new Faber-Castel Polychromos colored pencils. I splurged and ordered the 120 pencil set. They are so pretty just setting in their box!

I pulled out pencils matching this week's color challenge and colored the flower images. I thought the panel with the bright blues and purples would look nice on a black card base, as well as the focal sentiment element.

I left the inside mostly blank with space to write a nice thank you note. 

I really like the feel of these new pencils. I have a mis-matched set of Prismacolor pencils that I've been using and they are pretty nice, but they don't have the smooth feel that the Faber-Castel pencils do. Not that I'm an expert, LOL.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone and thanks for looking in!
