Sassy Cheryl's-Show Us Your Layers

It's week two of the Sassy Cheryl's Show Us Your Layers Challenge-still a whole week to join us!

I used another oldie, but goodie! How cute is this little gal?! I used some scraps, a few dies (Technique Tuesday), and colored her up with my Copics...oh, and lots of layers :-)

Sassy Cheryl has created a number of You Tube videos-I actually signed up so I won't miss a one! She demonstrates her mad coloring skills with Faber Castell Polychromos, lists the numbers she uses, and on the last one, even gave a list of comparable Prisma pencils. 

For a link to the videos, go to SassyCheryl'sDaily.blogspot.com
Here's a note from the Sassy lady herself!

Oh and I've been picking random images during the week to discount, so you may want to follow me on Facebook or my daily blog to see what is on sale during the week.  You won't want to miss out on that. And don't forget to check out all the videos and tutorials on my YouTube channel.  
I'd love to hear from you.'

Now, ladies, I've come to the conclusion that I am becoming an "old dog" so new tricks, well, they take some warming up, BUT have some pencils so, I thought, I have to give this a whirl. Honestly, I don't see me becoming a pencil convert. I would, however, like to be proficient. PRACTICE...that word continues to crop up, doesn't it?! 

Sooo, here she is. Her face is a bit muddy, but, well...practice!

Other challenges I plan to enter:


  1. I have always love this sweet bunny. She looks fabulous with your pretty Spring colors. Beautiful card Ann ~jeni :)

  2. Look at you Ann. You have been so creative! Love to see first card I haven't seen this image before. I love to see something new. :)
    I adore colouring on second card. So beautiful.

  3. I am with you Ann. I love my Copics, but just couldn't pass up the challenge to get proficient with the pencils. I am hooked on both now so I guess I will just use which ever medium floats my boat at the moment. Aren't those videos of Cheryl's good!

    I love your coloring style and it carries right over into the pencils. You did a great job honey. Have fun practicing. LOL

  4. You did a wonderful job with the pencils Ann. I love my Copics until they drop a big spot of ink on my image and I have to start all over....lol I will also have to try the pencils...Love both your cards. the first one is one of my favs. Hugs, joann

  5. Your school girl card is adorable. I like everything about it.
