Lawnscaping Challenge No. 79: Color pencils card!

Hey is Heidi here!. I received my crafty order yesterday and I stared to work right away on the new techniques that I wanted to try for Lawnsacping Challenge No. 79
The technique I am showcasing today is coloring with pencils. Oh yes color pencils! I was so excited to get to use coloring pencils again after so many years. It felt funny at the beginning since I am so used to markers, but as soon as I stared blending with gamsol I thought: Oh wow! It is pretty much about the same concept of coloring with markers. The gamsol dissolves the wax from the colors making them easy to blend. I only have twenty four color pencils so I did not have a lot of colors to combine,  but overall it was a great experience. I am glad I got to try it!
I will definitely keep working with color pencils.
The colors that I have in these card were chosen by my eight year old boy who  is into the castles, dragons, knights and that sort of things. he was also wondering why I was coloring with color pencils. I thought that was funny!
I am using the "Critters ever after" stamp set for the first time, and I had fallen in love with it! (really? as usual)
I hope you'll enjoy my card and I will be back this week with the last of the three techniques that I wanted to try for this great challenge.
I wont have any time to use my third entry because I had a test this afternoon and time is up for entries. I hope they"ll have this great challenge again soon. It encourages me to try new techniques!

I was not sure which background looked better, so I uploaded both pictures!
Your kind comments make my day!!!
