Pastel Pecil Blending Owl

I love my Pastel Chalk Pencils. I just love them. They blend so beautifully and have gorgeous, rich, intense color. My first experience with using them was when I bought a set of 10 on sale -- I think I paid $4.00 for them a few years ago -- and I was hooked. I have since purchased a huge set to expand my color palette. If you buy nothing else, think about buying them for coloring skin tone -- they are sublime! They are in my top three favorites of all of my coloring tools.  The June issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter has a tutorial for you on how to blend with them, too.

The cute owl above was colored with my Pastel Chalk Pencils. It is a digi from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (when you order, use tjnrocks for 10% off!). I love this guy, and his matching saying. The background paper is Basic Grey, but the copper metallic and the other rich, lush papers are all from Paper Temptress.

Have a great day!

I LOVE this card. You coloured this cute owl so beautifully. I wish I had those pencils. Must try to find them when I go to the US.
