October Spectrum Noir Challenge

Well it has been so long since I have last blogged. Time just seems to go nowhere!
Through the summer I have made my Christmas cards but other than that I really haven't done a lot of crafting.
I am finding I am watching and looking at what everybody else is doing and doing none myself!
Anyway I decided last minute to enter the Spectrum noir October challenge.
The theme is grey and orange.
I decided to make the card into a birthday card so I could give it as a birthday card for my friends son whose birthday is in November.

The digital stamp was free from Complete Cardmaking and is from Pollycraft.
I coloured the image using the following spectrum noir pens

Jacket BG1, BG2, BG4
Jeans TB3, TB5, TB7 and then went over the top with BT4
Shoes BGR1 and Blender
Hair GB2, GB8
T Shirt OR1, OR2,OR3
Face/Hands FS2, FS3, TN2, CR3 

To assemble the card I used a black card base. Then a orange mat. I then embossed a black piece of card using the textures embossing folder from Crafters Companion. I brought the embossing out using pebeo gilding wax renaissance gold.
I also embossed a grey piece of paper using the same embossing folder.

I then tore the grey and orange piece and assembled as shown.
The sentiment was stamped and came free from Crafters Companion Inspiration magazine.

I will try and blog a little more in future.
Thanks for looking.
