Critters in the 'Burbs - Lawn Fawn Inspiration week

It's last day of June Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week and today we're featuring all the new coordinating dies from old sets: Critters in the 'Burbs, Critters Down Under, Critters on the Farm and Plus One.

For my card I'm using Critters in the 'burbs, there are lots of cards using this set out there but I never get tired of it, it's a favorite and a must have! Don't you think?

When I saw these sweet cards from Humblechan, I knew I wanted to use that sentiment in the same way, I mean, what a super sweet card to receive when you adopt a new friend, right? Also, I always loved her cards, she's one of my favorites and I know her love for animals just sums to it :)

Happy adoption

I wanted to keep the card simple, the background is colored with watercolors, I wanted it very soft, and then, yep!! No Copics on this one!!

After two months of waiting I finally have my box of Prismacolor pencils!! Yaaaay!! I was thinking a lot about purchasing them or not, they're not cheap! And since I was a child pencil coloring has been my least favorite, lol! But Copics are expensive too, and some of my Copics needed a refill so... I saved some money and I placed an order ;)

My impressions? I LOVE them!! I used them alone and with a Gamsol kit (this card is made with the kit) and they're easily blendable, the colors are really pretty and you don't need three tones to achieve a good blending, most times just one pencil looks great :) I'm still a newbie but I've been playing, I had a lot of fun and I'm really happy with the results! So you're definitely seeing me coloring with these new babies a lot!
