Pencil technique!

Hi bloggers! Happy Friday! This week we have a fun challenge at the Friday Mashup. We have to use a technique that I have never done before and I love it. I don't really know if it has a specific name but if you click here it will show you how to do it.  I think from now on I will be using this technique more often. I love the pencil look it gives. If you want to see more samples, look at the creations of the Friday Mashup team and I hope you get inspired. 

I used the In-Color cardstock, Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, and Strawberry Slush from the new catalog 2013-2014, and the designer series paper Gingham Garden...aren't they gorgeous? They are so lively and beautiful!  

Have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by! 

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using "your choice of a Neutral & a Splash of one Bright Color".
  2. Create a project "using a Pencil (regular graphite #2)".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project "using pencil & your choice of a neutral & a Splash of a Bright Color".
