Your Are Purrfect

Good morning!  I have a fun card for you today and I had to try Inge's fabulous Coloring on Kraft with Prismacolor Premier Pencils Tutorial.  Actually, this is the first time I've used these pencils, so I was a bit nervous about it.  My 7-year-old son was begging me to use them, so we sat down and worked on our cards together.

As you can see, I used Inge's layout and colors just to keep it simple.  Did I mention I was nervous?  haha!  I started by stamping this sweet girl from Pure Innocence Purrfect in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then stamped the sentiment next to her.  I used a fine tip Sharpie and ruler for the frame and then followed Inge's tutorial.  I had to retrace some of the lines with the black pencil when I finished because I really colored over them.  I LOVE the look of these pencils on kraft and I am excited to try it again.

Here is a peek at the card my son made using Pure Innocence Soldier Boy.  He loves to stamp with me.

Be sure to check out Inge's fabulous tutorial for MFT Academy and try it out.  You can find details on how to upload your projects using her technique HERE in the MFT Forum on Splitcoaststampers.
