Juicy Oranges ...

Hi Everybody,

Here is a little card that I sat and colored  in a moment of relaxation.

I got out the Spectrum Noir Pens and Pencils and set to work.

Clicking the link will take you to their Blog pages and there you will find more of the tutorials that I did for Spectrum Noir

The image is from the CD by Crafters Companion that accompanies the pencil tuition

The ribbon and pearls centre are from my "Stash" and I have matted and layered the whole panel onto orange card

The sentiment is stamped in  Spiced Marmalade and embossed in clear powder.

The colors used for this image are ...
Fruit    OR1 TN3 TN6 TN7 Pencils 020, 022,   091
Leaves   CG2 DG2 DG4 Pencils 056,  058,
Blossoms  PP1 PP3  Pencils 037
Shadow IG2 IG3 IG4 and Blender to soften the pointillism around the fruit.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  13. Hi Christina. What a beautiful 'sunny' card for a miserable wet and windy day. I hope the weather is better with you than it is here in the deepest south west of Cornwall. I think I've got a stamp on my wish list that looks a bit like the CD image you used...I feel it's time to send it up to the top so that I can warm myself up colouring beautiful oranges. :)
