I decided to use Eric and rumaged around my papers for inspiration! Then a Basic Grey paper (Fusion-Read Between the lines) jumped out at me. It had some great colour combinations for my card and I set to colouring Eric in. As I was colouring in it crossed my mind that many bloggers state the colours they use when they use Copics but you don't very often see this done for Prismacolors Pencils...or am I reading the wrong blogs? Not sure if this would interest anyone else but it would interest me.....especially if new to using Prisma's or thinking of putting a pack on your list for Santa!!!!!

I used PC956 Lilac, PC1009 Dahila Purple, PC1097 Moss Green and PC994 process Red.

I popped over to Basic Grey Challenges added a bit of embossing on the layering and gave some extra texture to the little Sizzix charm hearts and Voila.......
This is the first time I have used Eric, I cut off the little flower he was holding, snipped a little cut in his paw and he can hold any message I like. What a vesatile little monster he is!

Love it! He is a cute little monster and so sweet too. I love all my embossing folders too. They can just add so much more to a card or layout. You did such a wonderful job coloring him in.

Oh this is adorable! I love this little monster and you coloured him beautifully I really think it is brilliant to cut the flower out of his hand and add the sentiment in there! the embossing is so fitting too. The dots are kinda scaly or something...very monster-like!!!!
Hugs, TaraG
