7 Kids College Fund Challenge - Try Something New

Happy Wednesday! 

It's a new year and time to try new things. Today at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge, we are asking you to try something new on your cards (a new coloring medium, a new technique, a new product). 

For my card today, I used a coloring technique that is not exactly new, but one that I don't use very often. It is the Gamsol Magic technique using Prismacolor Pencils. I also used a new item (see the rose below).

You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund
Stamps: A Pen Friend
Accessories: Liquid Pearls

I used my Prismacolor Pencils to color A Pen Friend, and then used Gamsol to blend the colors. 

The day after Christmas, I finally broke down and purchased the McGill Rose Paper Blossoms. The large rose is my first attempt at making my own roses with this punch set.

I will be entering this in the following challenges: 


Thanks for stopping by today!
