karisma pencils

Got distracted last night - was meant to be mass-producing Christmas cards with my new stamps from Chocolate Baroque and Hobby Art (couldn't resist the special offers last weekend!) but found a box of Karisma pencils when picking up a heap of crafty stuff that ended up on the floor................. I remembered buying these at the NEC many years ago, but they didn't look as if they had ever been used, and I think they are long discontinued now.
I stamped off some birds n berries and had a play - I wasn't greatly impressed with the first ones I tried (much prefer my watercolour pencils), possibly as there wasn't a lot of colour choices in what was admittedly a smallish box.
Then I had an idea - to try using just the black and red pencils, so this is the result. The birds haven't landed on the holly properly, but it was ok as a trial run. I was much happier with this version, and will probably try it again with the watercolour pencils or promarkers, as I think it will make a nice card done properly!

  1. I love robins - I don´t see any around here though I believe they do visit gardens a bit higher up the mountains. I think your black and red work perfectly. Kate x
