Blended Pencils

There is a great tutorial on SCS this week for Blended Pencils. I used my long neglected Prismacolors for this along with sepia Pitt artist pens (superfine tip). This is my first attempt at outlining with these pens and it started off a bit shaky but got a bit neater toward the end. I guess that it is like with most things, the more you practice... You start by stamping an image in light ink and then coloring it in with your pencils, then outline. Easy!
I used Inspired By Nature and God's Beauty sets by Stampin' Up on Whisper White, Basic Black and Pretty In Pink cardstocks.
