The Pencil Case - O = Opulent!

Hello! Happy Saturday! How is everyone? Good I hope!

We have a new challenge over on THE PENCIL CASE blog this fortnight and our theme is Opulent, so use all those rich colours or embellies that you have lurking in your stash!  The DT was challenged to use just One Colour/Monochrome and as always we are showcasing the incredible LYRA REMBRANDT POLYCOLOR PENCILS.

This time we are sponsored by the fabulous…
………who are very kindly offering an amazing prize so check out THE BLOG for details.

I may have mentioned before that the Lyras come in the scrummiest orange tones so that was the colour family I went with for my project today which I think covers both One Colour AND Opulent.
I made an easel card from some large shaped dies using the gorgeously sweet WINNIE SUGAR SPRINKLES SPRINGTIME BUNDLEOoooh ‘tis lushness!

Dies: Couture ‘Enchanted Escapes’ – Tonic ‘Frond Finesse’
Colouring Card/Printing Paper: Neenah Solar White – Super Smooth
Others: Gems Ribbon – Faux stitching

So get Tangoed (it’s an orange thing) and pop over to THE BLOG and join our fab challenge.  And if you want to experience these amazing artist quality pencils for yourself you can get them HERE! And if you already have them and enjoy using them why not share your makes with us in our FACEBOOK GROUP! We would love to see you!

Thanks so much for looking and for your kind comments and have a wonderful weekend!

See ya!
