Hey there, welcome to the March Neat and Tangled release. The first stamp set up is the Yo Ho set of pirates which I love. I especially love that there is a girl pirate!


I created this card on kraft cardstock, stamping the images with Versafine ink. Then I used my Prismacolor Pencils to add a splash of color to the scene. This is the first time that I've tried this technique. I found that blending shades with colored pencils was much easier than with Copics. I could even erase mistakes. I thought this was a pretty good result for a first try. 


To create some texture between the white card base and the kraft scene, I used a fringe steel die to create the layered pop of blue in the center. It's a really simple way to add color and texture to any card.


Neat and Tangled will be giving away a Yo Ho stamp set. To enter, leave a comment below to be entered. Tell me what's your favorite coloring medium. Visit the Neat and Tangled blog on Friday for a list of winners. Good luck!
