Sun Ripen Grapes


I recently bought a set of Koh-I-noor colored pencils. I have held off on buying these because, honestly, I had other colored pencils so was hesitant.

If you are debating on buying the Koh-I-noor pencils I suggest you buy them. The price is pretty reasonable and these pencils are amazing to color with. They color wonderfully, blend beautifully and are pretty affordable.

I used them on this image and really love the finished product.

So, what is your choice for colored pencils and why?

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!


Stamps: SU Sun Ripen II, Friends wordswheel

Beautiful coloring! I haven't heard of these pencils. I have gotten into copics myself and am enjoying learning how to use them.

I also really enjoyed your post about your Dad. I too am Daddy's little girl and always end our chats with I love you...thanks for the reminder to cherish those we love.

Cheers,
Shanna

Great job coloring those grapes! I love those pencils too, they blend like a dream! I also use prismacolor pencils just because of the color selection.

Beautiful card- vivid colors.....I like the Prismacolor pencils....I have a set and use them rarely- and my winter goal is to use them and get better at it!
