Pencil thanks

Stamps: Star Prints, Just a Note (PTI)
Ink: too many to mention! (Memento)
Other: 3/8" corner chomper
I was inspired by the pencils on Laurie's MUSE card this week, which also gave a very timely reminder for teachers' thank yous.  We don't need them quite as soon here in the UK - not until the middle of July - but it doesn't hurt to be prepared.
I used the same idea as for this card, with closer spacings.  The in between colours were created by inking up the stamp with 2 colours before applying to the paper.
Have realised now that as these pencils are hexagonal in x-section, I can also enter it into CASology.
