Catching Up, Having Tea with a Friend

Hi, Everyone!
For today's card I used a image by Mo Manning Stamp called  Catching Up Mo Manning which is available at 7 Kids College Fund.  I have been eyeballing this image for awhile smiles. I just did not think I had the guts to do it.  Just one of the those things. Well I finally did It. And it is colored on Kraft paper with Prisma Pencils. This is my first time oh my!  It was a nice change for me. I just could not believe how the Prisma Colored Pencils move so well for blending. I have been inspired by several artists. They have been so sweet and kind to help me since I was on training wheels and still on them. I still need more practice.  I want to thanks these ladies DorcasTracyJane and Annika.   Thanks so much for tutorials, and answering my emails. I truly appreciate it a student in training. Smiles.
