What a great start to another week (hopefully). It started off a little rocky on yesterday (Sunday) but all is well.
Today, I used a stamp and some Prismacolor pencils to make a card. I practiced on some black cardstock as well as a patterned piece of paper. Read that statement again...I practiced....I was practicing...Practice did not make perfect so I'm going to keep trying. Anyway, I'm sharing my practice pieces:

I used Simon Says Stamp "Beautiful Flowers" stamp along with Versa Mark ink and embossing powder (white and silver). Out of the Prisma colors I picked reds, pink and greens to color the flowers.
I wasn't very happy with any of the results but I did turn one into a card and added a sentiment. The other two practice pieces will be filed for a later date.
I like this stamp very much due to the flowers and I intend to use it again with distress inks or my water colors since I don't have Copic pens. I've seen some awesome cards using this stamp where the colors were vibrant and the flowers looked so real.
As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. I just have to keep at it.
Thanks for looking.
Sending you a hug and love,
