Birthday Surprise

Hi there 🙂 I was thrilled to be asked to guest design at Coloring With Pencils this month! I was provided with an image from one of their fabulous sponsors….Amanda Jayne Designs… work with. I colored up Lily Quokka with my Prismacolor pencils, then cut it out with a die, fussy cutting a few of the over hanging pieces.

I layered 2 parts of a pretty die to frame this adorable little guy, then went to work looking through my paper stash to see if I could find some paper to use as a background. I was both thrilled and surprised when I found this striped piece, which was perfect for the colors I’d used on the image!! I tried 3 different colors of the die cut sentiment, but none of them looked just right. Then I had the brain wave to layer them up, and tada!!! Sometimes more is better, lol. I would like to thank the team over at Coloring With Pencils for inviting me to join them this month, and encourage any of you pencil lovers to check out their ATG with pencils challenge 🙂
