Christmas Scene

This image is coloured with  Spectrum Noir pens  that are  available from  Crafters Companion 
Not  everybody wants, needs or  can afford the complete set  and to be  perfectly  honest you don't need them all.

I have always said ... Start with the six pens sets and build up as you want   from there ... as you can afford to buy them.

So  all I have used here is the set of Ice Greys.

If you are new to these pens then please take a look at Spectrum Noir Introduction  which will give you a better explanation of what they are all about.

But I thought that it would be a good idea to show how each of the colour sets stand alone and just some of the ways that they can work for you.

I am going to put together a series of videos for each set of pens and start with the greys ... and show several cards with them and how they can all look different.  I hope you will find it useful.

This card is a very simplified version and the digital image is from   Just Inklined 

I have used Spellbinders Create a Flake 3 and  I have added  Micro Beads to each flake  and layered them together,  then added a clear gemstone to the centres.

The sentiment tag is Fancy Framed Tags 2

The ribbon is Seam Binding and it is an inexpensive addition to your "Stash". 

The Diamante Swirl is from Want2Scrap  and I have added Glamour Dust to the snow,  trees and the sentiment.... but it doesn't show up very well  on the photgraph.
