Make It Monday #30: Colored Pencils

Boy, did this challenge come in the right time. I got a new Marci stamp in the mail this morning and I was dying to try it out. I am registered to a copic class next week but don't have any copics yet, and probably even after the class with 6 copics I will not have much wiggle room, but with my faithful Crayola pencils I can play. 

I just loved the baby oil technique that Jennifer showed in the video. I have seen colored pencils blended with mineral spirit but since I have no idea what it is or if I can get it in Israel, I just left it alone - but baby oil, I have that at home :-) so I had to try.

In any case, I've been wanting to try a few new dies I got from Lifestyle crafts/Quickutz and I am always happy to participate in a PTI challange - I just LOVE their stamps, paper and dies (and don't have enough from them)

So here is my card:

Paper: PTI Vintage cream (card base and stamped Marci), PTI Pure Poppy, DCWV The Shimmer matstack (purple circle).
Stamp: La La Land Crafts  - Darling Marci.
Colors: Crayola
Other: Paper stub (which I prepared myself, as I don't think you can get those here is Israel and for sure you can't do it at midnight...). Glossy accents, Recollections extra fine glitter Glitz, Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I am also submitting this card to the "Simon Says Stamps - Anything goes" challenge, and the Lifestyle Crafts Blog Contest and Giveaway
