I'm here to share another card I made using one of Mabelle's adorable images from Whimsy and Stars. This cutie is called Balloon Girl and you can find her HERE. I know I always seem to need Birthday cards and this image comes in soooo handy. I colored her with my Copics and went back and high lighted and shaded with my Prisma pencils. I am trying to use my pencils more so they don't feel so neglected and so I can get better at using them. Practice, practice, practice. Lol (At least that's what I tell the Hubby)
I bought a Derwent battery powered sharpener the other day and I love the way it sharpens my pencils. The tip is sharp but it doesn't eat up a lot of the pencil leaving the inside exposed and weak. I highly recommend it. It was $20.00 but I used my 50% off coupon so that helped a bit.

Only 2 more days left to get in on my Blog Candy!!!

Good Luck and Happy Crafting!

Sweet card Jeni! Love how you color. I could practice until the cows come home with colored pencils and it wouldn't help.
