My new Prismacolors...

So when I was in America, I took the plunge and bought some Prismacolors.
WOW.  I LOVE them.
They were 50% off!!!!  I couldn't believe it.  England doesn't DO sales like that!  We don't even do vouchers. :(
And although my lovely friend Kathy said I should buy the big set, I resisted, and got the 78 pencil tin.  (If only I'd listened to her... I want MORE).
So today I had my first real play with them.  Delicious.
Blue Blossoms
I used THIS Hero Arts digikit, printed it straight onto kraft cardstock, coloured in front of X Factor (yay!) and assembled.  Simple.  I added lots of white dots, a la Kathy, using THIS fab white pen.  Love the way it pops.
So thanks Kathy and Jennifer for forcing me to buy my Prismas.  I am DEFINITELY a happy customer. :)
Oh, and Kathy has an amazing giveaway HERE and Jennifer HERE.  Check them out.
Happy Monday.  This is a good week, as it's the build up to my half term holiday on Friday! Yay.

Yay, Lucy, so happy for you - and aren't they so pretty all lined up or in a big jar together? :) Your card with blues on kraft is gorgeous! You must come back more often :)

STUNNING! Your colouring is fantastic and while watching TV. The white rally does pop out at you and I love the dimension on the biggest flower.

I had to purchase a set of 120 PrismaColors ten years ago for my Graphic Design degree and I still have them and love them as much today. They are a GREAT investment. Your card is lovely.

So pretty! It must have been so fun when you saw how cheap a lot of crafty things are in the US! When I went to Scrapfest me and my friends loved buying stuff and kept talking about the deals!

I LoVe my prismacolours too! And wish they would sell them over here in the UK. You'll have a fab time playing with them over half term :)

Kelly said...

Those colors really pop. I just looked at those pencils today, but they are expensive. I have watercolor pencils, but a very small set and thus limited colors. They look DELICIOUS on that craft paper. WOWZERS!

Karen said...

Congrats on the Prisma pencils. I love them. Such a pretty card with gorgeous, vivid color.

Jess said...

I love my prismacolor pencils too! I can't get enough of them. It's testament to how much I use them that I've had to buy a couple of replacement colours. I've never had that problem with markers!!
