I wasn't sure about this stamp set when it was first in the catalogue but it comes into its own with the pencils. I made one in blue which I sent to a friend before I managed to photo it. It was stunning.
I have used the 'Melon Mambo' pencil for the petals and the range of colour you can get from one crayon is brilliant. Tomorrow I will show you how I started with the pencils before I even started to colour a stamped image. It will give you an idea of how to get started.
Did you know there were certain colours you could mix, sometimes the order that you lay down the pencil makes a difference too.
The paper layer, lantern die cut, fancy corners and ribbon are all retired or no SU products. I just wanted a pretty card.
