Happy Friday all
What could be better, It's Friday, the sun is shinning
and i have just received my complete set of
Spectrum Noir pencils from C&C.
I love blendable pencils, i have the Polychromos ones
as you will probably know already.
But after seeing the fab pencils from Spectrum Noir on
TV last week i had to give in and order them.
Well they were a very good price.
You can download a colour chart from the
I did the A4 blank colour chart so i could colour
it in myself, then i would have a true colour copy for matching.
I did have one little problem i discovered that i had
two of the same colour in my essentials tin. That meant i was
missing one colour so i emailed Crafters Companion and they said
they would mail me the missing pencil.
It hasn't arrived yet, but they couldn't have been more helpful.
Watch this space.
The first thing i wanted to do was to colour on Kraft card
they had some samples on kraft which looked great
so i wanted to give it a go.
Here's the result of a bit of playing last night.
The colour goes on and blends beautifully.
I do feel i need a bit more practise on the
skin to make it stand out more, but no I'm
really happy with the results.
I used Crafters Companion Kraft card
and inked it up with vintage photo distress ink.
Handmade Coffee filter paper flowers.
( I so need to make more).
Leaves are from a Crealies die.
Stamp i have used is Tilda with cherries in basket
it's an older stamp but I'm going to make a point of using them more,
I keep buying new ones and the old ones seem to get forgotten about.
I can't tell you where the papers are from, i found this in my bits draw
and thought i would go perfectly.
Tim Holtz sentiment tag.
Lace from stash.
Well would you believe it the postie has just been
and my missing pencil has arrived.
You can't beat that for good customer service.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fab
I'm off for another play with my pencils.
