First project with Lyra Rembrandt Pencils

Some of you may know that I have been waiting patiently for my new Lyra pencils to arrive - well they did and wow they are such an improvement from any pencil I have used in the past. You all know I ADORE my Prismas but I have to say these Lyras beat them by far. That's not to say I will get rid of my Prisma - they will have their place in my stash along with my Promarkers!!

I have to try to find the best card fro me for these and I am off shopping online shortly.

See what you think about the vibrancy of these - they blend without a blender or paper stump too. Less pain in the neck ha ha!!

Carnival Balloon from Funky Kits;
Lyra Rembrandt pencils (colours can you believe are written on the back of the image - what a plonker I am!!);
Papers are DoCrafts Bellisimmo;
Sentiment from Stampin' Up Good Greetings;
Dies is Sizzix Lovely Labels Set 658051.

I am going to enter this into the following Challenges:~
The Sugar Bowl No 129;
Creative Fingers No 94 A/G and
Create & Inspire A/G No 30.
