There’s a holiday for everything. Even a number 2 pencil.

Antique Rose: National Pencil Day

Sometimes you need to just challenge yourself, if you know what I mean. I haven’t ever tried to *just* use a No. 2 pencil on a stamped card on natural white cardstock – so the holiday is the perfect time to try it out! Use whatever light ink you have on hand – it’s a fun challenge! Just be sure you don’t let anyone think you drew it without a stamp. Well, unless you’re a rockstar and you DO draw it without the stamp! ha! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The card is very simple – a square card, with the panel popped. Simple, elegant, and shows off the pencil sketching!

By the way if you want to be encouraged – go read the comments on Monday’s video! Oh my. The studio tour mini-rant seems to have released a lot of people from the little green monster. I am SO tickled!
