  13. Love this. So pretty.

  14. What an elegant card! Gorgeous in white only!

  15. I FINALLY bit the bullet and bought the Bostitch Quiet Sharp 6 on sale on Amazon for around $18 – it is AMAZING!!!!!! It’s huge, but quiet and stops automatically when the pencil is sharpened and it actually sharpens the pencils to a nice, sharp tip. Sandy, thanks for the advice and I will start listening to you sooner!!!

  16. Stunning card! The white pencil on the black cardstock is so elegant looking. Thanks for demonstrating your technique for this.

  17. Another gorgeous card!

  24. Lovely effect and visual Easter lesson that The
    Light of the world has risen and overcomes death and darkness

  25. This is very beautiful! Love this design idea.

  26. Gorgeous! And fairly forgiving… I remember doing something similar when I first got my Prismacolors years ago, of course without the benefit of technique or skill… but it still came out pretty! I haven’t tried it again since, but I’d like to knowing much more about pencil coloring now than I did then 🙂

  27. Wow! This is beautiful! What a great way to use this gorgeous stamp!

  28. This is stunning, Sandy! Fabulous video tutorial.
