White Breasted Nuthatch aceo

I just finished this little aceo and listed it at my etsy shop.  It's created with colored pencils on heavy card stock paper. 
Today Michael's had a 50% off on all Prismacolor products, so I picked up a bunch of new colors that I didn't have and a box of their Verithin colored pencils.  The Prismacolor Verithin is a hard thin lead that's great for outlining, detailing, lettering and cleaning up edges.  Ya, I got that from the back of the box.  Oh, I also bought a pad of Bristol paper and am excited to try it out. 
Well, that's it for now.  Have a great day!
hugs,
Brenda

Have fun with your new pencils. I have some but haven't used them in years. Maybe I should pull them out...

I like your new ACEO.

The pencils you used for this aceo seem to work really well as the drawing of the Nuthatch is lovely.

Thank you Rose. Yes, Prismacolor colored pencils are wonderful, they have a soft lead.
