Diamonds & Pearls Star Fairy

The Pollycraft challenge this week is Diamonds & Pearls. I'm getting in by the skin of my teeth AGAIN!! But this week I do have an excuse...I'm interstate, staying with my lovely friend Helen, so I'm posting this from her house :)  Today is the last day of my visit...I head home tonight :(

Here's my card...

This is Star Fairy from Pollycraft...coloured with Prisma pencils...I need LOTS of experimenting & practice with this medium as I'm not really happy with the shading :(  I love the look of the pencils and am determined to stick with them until I work out the best method and paper to get the result I want. Being at Helen's was the perfect excuse to play with this medium as I couldn't bring my Copics with me or my luggage would have been overweight lol!! I've been wanting to play with the pencils for ages but seem to always reach for my Copics...the pencils have pushed me well & truly out of my comfort zone!!!

I'll post all the details when I get home :)

Have a wonderful day :)

Well... I viewed a closeup of your card and.. you've done a marvelous job with the Prisma Pencils! The background paper really accents the image wonderfully... you get a playful feeling!

I think your colouring is amazing Lynne - Prisma or Copic. This one is so pretty IRL too, all cute & glittery. :)
Glad you got to stay & play (& shop, shhhh!) Hugs
