Inspire Me Monday: Brusho and Colored Pencils

Hello all!   Happy Monday to you all today!  I'm Allison and I'm your hostess today for Inspire Me Monday.

If you haven't already had the chance to check out the newest Power & Spark Challenge for February then you're missing out.  This month's challenge is all about picking up some of those not-so used coloring mediums that we all know we have hiding around.  You know, the ones that get pushed to back of the cupboard or the tin of pencils you keep meaning to use that your honey bought you for Christmas.  We all have 'em!  So now's your time to pull them out and give them a go. 

For more information on the challenge details, visit HERE.

So in honor of this fun challenge, I too, thought I'd pull out some fun coloring mediums that I hadn't used in a while to use on today's card.  So I grabbed some Brusho Crystal Colours and my Prismacolor colored pencils since I typically would grab for my Copic Markers.

Grab a cup of something warm to sip and meet me at my scrappy desk... we're going to create a scene using some different stamps sets and having fun coloring it up with some cool mediums.

I hope you enjoyed my video today.  Let's see that card one more time...

I used the amazing "Cozy Cupfuls" and "Wreaths Plain & Fancy" stamps on my card today.  Who says these holiday stamp sets have to be used for just holiday cards?!

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I've inspired you to experiment with your coloring mediums - make sure you share your card creations with us on our challenge link up!

Happy coloring everyone!

Oh, Ally, what a beautiful card, and I love how you've colored these sweet cardinals! Thanks for sharing more about Brushos and how you've organized them too with the tack at the top. So many are using them, and you've explained them well. Thanks...and sending warm hugs!
