PTI MIM #246 and Day 2 - Coloring Challenge

It's hard to believe it's March already! 

Melissa has us trying colored pencils on kraft this week at Make It Mondays, which also fit into The Daily Marker's 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 2.  I've seen people doing this for awhile and thought it would be neat to try, but just hadn't taken the time to do so.  Now, I'm kicking myself for not trying this sooner.  It even looks great on black.  It just doesn't photograph very well.

I admit I had to wipe the dust off my colored pencils.  Here's my card.  I really liked how it turned out.

PTI's What the Doodle: Butterfly Stamp Set and Keep It Simple: Thinking of You Stamp Set.
SU's Crumb Cake and Bordering Blue (retired) Card Stock
MFT's Die-namics Blueprint Dies #20
Versa Mark ink
White embossing powder

Thanks, Melissa for using this technique.  Hopefully, I will use my colored pencils more often so the dust doesn't collect on!

Thanks for stopping by, I love it when you do.  


  1. Lovely, lovely card Sue! The coloring looks just FABULOUS on the kraft cardstock! Love how you used all the images in that set for your beautiful background...truly a beautiful card!! :0)

  2. Oh how I love your colorful butterflies! I need to dust off this stamp set myself and use it. Thanks for the inspiration!!

  3. Beautiful job Sue. Your colouring is perfection!

  4. This is so beautiful - love it !

  5. Perfect results, Sue, with the colored pencil butterflies!
