Oooh, I just went to take a peek at the pastel pencil on black cardstock. What a fabulous technique! And so much cheaper than the Copic plunge I took last year.
My purchases so far have been kind of boring. They've been mostly organizational. I bought Ribbon Ring tags and now have all my ribbon nicely organized. I got an A Muse Studio ink just to give it a try. And I have a friend picking up the Ikea Bygel rails this weekend for my punches. The only other organizational item I want is a case for my Copics, but that can wait awhile longer.
I think my April purchase is going to be something fun, like a die and maybe an embossing folder.
