First Attempt with Prismacolor Pencils

I have had this Altenew stamp set sitting on my desk for a few weeks and haven't been sure where to begin, but when I saw the AAA Challenge theme, I knew this was a good stamp set to use.

I managed to get a set of Prismacolor pencils on special a few months ago and this is the first time I've used them.
I'm not so sure about my colour choices, but it was a bit of an experiment. Just after I bought the pencils, I noticed that everyone was raving about Faber Castell Polycromo pencils being way better - oh well! Anyhow, I can see it will take a lot of practice to learn how to blend and I'm not sure if it's going to be even harder than Copics, but it's fun trying, I can definitely see one plus and that is that it doesn't show on the back of the card so it's easier to do one layer with pencils.

The stamp set is Altenew 'Garden Grow'.

I'm entering the following challenges:-
