The Pencil Case - P = Pretty or Peculiar Colour Combos!

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 Pretty or Peculiar Colour Combos.  Ooooh er!!  So either forget all those combos that you know and love and go all ‘left-field’, or think perfectly pretty!  As always the team 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.

Now I have to admit to being more than a little intimidated by this incredible image and it is called CINDERELLA’S FOLLIES.  So much detail and that hair!!! Oh my! 
The team were challenged to use a peculiar  colour combo and I used orange and blue with a touch of pink and green!  It is certainly not a go to combo for me (or anyone else I shouldn’t wonder)!

Ingredients:
Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Large Decorative Rectangles’ and ‘Pin Point Rectangles’ – Spellbinders ‘Ribbon Banners’
Colouring Card: Neenah Solar White
Other card: Stash stuff
Colouring: LYRA REMBRANDT POLYCOLOR PENCILS (Colours used listed on THE PENCIL CASE BLOG)
Others: Doilies – Feather – Gems - Ribbon

So 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!
