Coloring with Prismacolor Pencils

Happy Saturday everyone!!

I had some crafting time to myself today and couldn't decide what I wanted to do. I hadn't bust out with my Prismacolor pencils in awhile, so I thought I'd change things up a little bit and color up one of my MFT PI images "Beach Bum" with my Prismacolor pencils (instead of my Copic markers) and create a card. And then I thought... hey, why don't I do a quick tutorial so I can share some of the techniques I learned using my pencils. So here's the card I created. I just ADORE the PI girl. She is way stinkin' adorable!

For those of you who haven't taken the leap to invest in Copic markers... I would really recommend trying out Prismacolor pencils for coloring up your images. It is so much fun, fairly inexpensive (compared to Copic markers) and you can achieve an outcome that is so similar to using Copic markers!

Have fun trying this out.
