Miss Daisy

Hello, today I am sharing the card I created for the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge.  This week we were to create a card with "Lots of Layers".  Well, I did a happy dance when I found out we were going to use my favorite style.  




I have used Prismacolor pencils many times over the last 20 years but I had never stamped an image on kraft cardstock and then colored it.  I was inspired by one of my color pencil heros, Dorcas from Dorcas Designs. This gal is a master with colored pencils and she often colors on kraft cardstock and I love how it looks and decided to give it a try with this sweet little mousie image from the Inky Antics Teacup Mousies #2 Clear Set.  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then I gave the image a base layer of white Prisma and then started adding colors.  I am really happy with how it turned out for my first try. 

Now we would love for you to join in on the challenge with us this week.  You might even win a prize!  Check it out HERE

I am also entering this card in the DYSU Challenge Blog as this weeks challenge is Layers, and you all know how I love me some layers!
