Monday, August 09, 2010 flowers!!

Well I thought I would try a bit of experimenting with my I can't afford to buy prismas or more so more Promarkers. I had this little digi image in my stash so I have been practising...I gently coloured this with copics and then I went over with my water pencils which seemed to do the same job as prismas. I tried it with water pens but they didn't the darker areas are where I added the pencils and I pulled the colour out...maybe it's not as good as prismas but only those that use prismas would know that but I am happy with how these worked. The papers are from Kaisercraft which I think work well with image. The message is also from the Kaisercraft. I have entered this in the following challenges:

Oh, I love this card, really love it. I too have this image - I think it might be your fault actually! Anyway, I digress, I think your mock prisma effect (hereafter known as MPE) is just perfect. Great effect, zilcho kerching. xxx
