Zombie-Mummy Card & Blog Candy Peek

Hello Everyone,
I hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed the blog hop. On my hop post I had written that my candy would be a surprise for the moment but I gave a clue that it was one of my favorite tools. I hardly write about my likes/dislikes but if you are a good detective then you prob guessed what it was. In the off chance that no one knew(lol) I decided to write a post about of it....

I know that many of you love Copic Markers. I don't blame you, I've seen what you can do with them. But for me, this set of Prismacolor Pencils and markers (not shown) were my pride and joy at university. My art teachers lived by these and well ...ingrained the same feeling into us. The lead is soft and buttery that makes blending easy...well ok, I wont lie - it's not that easy because just like with everything else its all about practice, practice, practice - but once you get acquainted with them then you'll be able to create beautiful magic. lol, I sound so cheesy.

Picture 1: Box of 120 possibilities
I had mentioned previously that I had left them to the side collecting dust. It wasn't until earlier this year that I took them out and displayed them on my craft table. I like to turn to them on occasion to get color inspiration. I also like using them for my cricut cuts, stamps, etc.

Picture 2: As part of my blog candy, I am offering 9 pencils to the lucky winner.
You'll receive the primary colors, black/white, some extra blues and brown.
In my eyes, you'll be able to do a lot with these sweet puppies.
My card below is a demonstration...

Ill be back tomorrow with another project and the winner. You still have time to comment on my blog hop post here to be eligible for the grand prize and for my candy. For an extra chance for my candy, comment on this Zombie-Mummy post.

Im also entering this card in Cristina's Spooktacular Challenge over at Crafting with Cristina. Her theme for this week is Halloween Theme and you can not use orange and black combined. Go over to her site and join her fun challenges.

I love the zombie. I just started using Prisma pencils and it does take practice for the blending but the outcome is fabulous! I already have more pencils on my Christmas list and it would be so cool to win from you! Thanks for the chance.

Super cute card!! Love your Zombie!! I'm just getting into stamping....dont have either copics or pencils yet. Cant decide which way to go. Copics are sooo expensive, but the pencils seem to work super great too! Let me know what you think for someone who is just starting out....copic or pencils??? Thank you!!

I have to agree with you, my preference is not Copic markers. Call me crazy but they just don't do it for me. You did a fantastic job with your card and the blending is outstanding. tfs
