Colouring In ...

While I was in Canada one of the things that Naomi wanted to learn was how to colour in images that  are from  stamps or  digital downloads. 

One of the images I coloured is on her blog page so why not pop over and  take a look at  Creative Bug on the Loose  She has made it up into a very pretty card that would suit any occasion and I just love them

It features one of the Fairy Babies that I bought from Mo's Digital Pencil  and there are so many beautiful images on there that you will be  spoilt  for choice. 

The artist,  Maurie Manning,  has given me her permission to use these images in a series of videos that I am going to make on using the Spectrum Noir pen system.

Naomi made a very good pupil and watched as I showed her which pens to use to get the effect for each individual thing that we wanted to do.
All the parts to this card are done with the Spectrum Noir pens and this is Naomis' first attempt at using them. 

 The card that we used was not the correct one for the pens and once Naomi gets some smooth paper she will be even more pleased with the results.

We coloured the ribbons, pearls and the acetate background with the same pens, and blended them all to match the colour scheme.

The little tag sentiment at the bottom Naomi has covered with the  Glass Beads  that I told you about the other day.

The flowers are of course Spellbinders Blossom 3 and she has inked the edges with Distress Inks.

So well done Naomi with this beautiful card.... and the videos will be here shortly.

Hugs xx


  1. I saw this the other day and it is lovely. xxxx

  2. I am really looking forward to your videos as my colouring is just awful. One thing I do want to know is when I print out a digital image even after leaving it overnight the printer ink still bleeds slightly. I have some promarkers and some copics and use the Neenah card.
