Spectrum noir July competition

I decided to enter the Spectrum noir July competition. 
This months theme was all about summer so this is what I have created.

I used both spectrum noir pens and pencils to colour the image in. 
They are as follows
CT2,CT4,GB5,GB8,GB10,EB5, LG1, LG2, LG3, LG5,
13, 18, 22, 45, 46, 49, 86, 96, 101 and 65.

My Mum's favourite flowers are sunflowers and she was called Sunflower at the Brownie pack she was leader for.
Her birthday is in September so I think she will receive this card and love it.

Thanks for looking,

Last Day at School-Teacher Gifts

Today as been the last day at school and my boys have broken up for the summer.
I made my youngest son a present and card for his teacher as he is still in primary school.
Here it is...
The stamp I used was Crafters Companion Bebunni and I coloured the image in with my spectrum noir pencils. The colours I have  used are the following:
14,17,18,34,35,36,37,38, 41,42,56,57,58,59,65,69,78,112,116 and117

I also did a book fold for her and decorated the outside using craft artist.Unfortunately I can't show you the sides as it as photos of my son with his teacher.

His teacher was thrilled with her gift, hope you like it too x

Spectrum Noir Competition

Well its been so long since I have last updated my blog!!!
I have been really busy with my proper job I haven't done much crafting.
In April things got a little quiet and I decided to learn how to use my spectrum noir pens! They have looked really pretty on the side for too long!
Anyway after watching lots of you tube videos I have made a few cards with them.
Unfortunately I can't show you any as I have made them for family and friends birthdays for July and August. (You haven't got too long to wait now)
In June I entered the spectrum noir June competition for the first time. The theme was add a bit of sparkle or bling to your card. Here is the card I entered.

I only went and won the top 3

Excited is an understatement!
Here are the colours I used to colour the bebunni in: IG2, IG4, IG6, PP1, PP2, PP4, DG1, DG2, DG3,TB3, TB5, TB6, DR1, DR6, DR6 + pencils 25, 27, 28, 34, 35, 36, 56, 59, 60, 64, 67, 70, 112, 114, 115.
