The Pencil Case - H = Heartfelt!

Hello! How is everyone? Good I hope!

We are opening our hearts over on THE PENCIL CASE blog this fortnight by offering you a Heartfelt challenge.  Scoot over to THE BLOG to see how the DT has interpreted this theme using the awesome LYRA REMBRANDT POLYCOLOR PENCILS.  Inspiration aplenty!!
This time we are sponsored by the awesome…
………who are offering an incredible prize so check out THE BLOG for details.

For my make I used one of Nikky’s incredible colouring pages that can be found as part of the COLOUR THERAPY CLUB – MONTH 1 A .  There are also many other gorgeous bundles and complete colouring book collections to download HERE.  They are absolutely fab and I cannot recommend them highly enough (and I can’t stop using them either!!).

I know sometimes it can be a bit daunting colouring a page full of intricate design but there are no rules to say that you have to colour the entire thing.  In fact that is what I have done here; layering heart dies to spotlight areas and leave a small portion blank. 
OK so I have to say this looked soooo much better in my mind before I actually created it and does, in fact, look better IRL.  Designing is all about experimenting and pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone……I’ve learnt lessons; nuff said!! J

Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Pin Hole Squares’ - Sizzix ‘Heart Framelits’
Card/Paper: Neenah Solar White
Others: Ribbon - Gems  

So take heart 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!
