CCEE2112 ~ Happy National Pencil Day!

Hi friends!

For today's blog post, no monkeying around ~ 

I'm penciling it in!

There's a new challenge at the CCEE Stampers from Frances:

 Apparently the 30th March is Pencil Day … For our challenge this week, feature pencils, colored pencils, crayons etc on your card creations. Either use this medium to color your image, or feature an image of pencils, crayons etc.

How fun!

I decided to take the literal approach and use colored pencils.

I used the Arteza watercolor pencils to color this SUPER FUN

Cheeky Monkey image from Your Next Stamp.

He is just the CUTEST!

I know these are meant to be used as watercolors

but I left them as just coloring pencils - and it worked :)

Be sure to stop in the CCEE Stampers blog here

and link up your PENCIL themed cards this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
