Prismacolor Pencils on Craft

I spent some time yesterday to color the Scene from La-La Land Crafts with Mod Marci, Suitcase, Tuffy (dog) and postage stamps.  This is the same Digi Scene that I used on this card.  

This time I colored it with Prismacolor Pencils instead of Copics.  I added grass and flowers with pencils to complete the scene.  I am really amazed at the results that can be achieved! 

Click HERE to buy this DIGI SCENE.  Or click HERE, HERE and HERE to buy RUBBER STAMPS.


This is a sample for my upcoming 
"Prismacolor Workshop - Coloring on Craft Cardstock". 

WHEN: Sunday, January 15th, 12 pm to 5 pm
WHERE: Cranberry Hill Mercantile in Sunnyvale, CA

*Please note: we will not be making this project at the workshop.  This is just a coloring sample.

Please call the store at 408-736-9151 to sign up.  Please click HERE for more details.

The scene is mounted on the 7" x 7" frame from Ikea and embellished with various dies and punches.  Leave brunches are dies from Cheery Lynn.  Daisy die is from the exclusive set from Scrap Happy Ohio.  Small flower is a punch and Rolled Roses were cut with my Silhouette.  Pearl Pen in Cream was used in the centers of the small flowers.

Cupid Marci Heart Shaped Box

I am so very happy with the way my project came out!!  This project features one of our NEW stamps CUPID MARCI!  Cupid Marci stamp comes with TWO Sentiments too, I used one of them today.  The other sentiment says "Hugs and Kisses".  Pretty awesome!!  You can BUY Cupid Marci Stamp Set in our online store, click HERE.

Did you know that you can now buy Cheery Lynn Dies in our online store?!!  

I made the heart shaped box using Heartland America Large Die by Cheery Lynn Designs for the top and the bottom of the box.  This is actually a set of TWO dies - one is the intricate heart doily die and the other one is the background layer (which can be used on it's own as well if desired)!!.  LOOOOVE it!!

On the top of the box there is another die from Cheery Lynn - Fanciful Flourish.  VERY pretty!!
