Spectrum Noir DVD

Hi Everybody,

This beautiful image is taken from the new DVD by Spectrum Noir and it is one of the digital images that are  available to you on the disc.

Just download it and print if off and you too will be able to color it in to your hearts content.

The colors I have used are....
Skin FS4 FS7 FS9
Hair TN2 TN7 TN8 EB8
Flowers LV1 LV2 LV3 CR6 CR9 CR11 GB1 GB5 CT4 CT2
TB1 TB2 TB4 PL1 BP2 BP6 
Leaves DG2 DG4 CG1

I did this when it was pouring down one afternoon ... and it took me hours to get all the parts to the image completed... but I was so pleased with it when it was done.

Most of it was done with the fine nib ... but I do have some of  the  brush nibs and they are wonderful to work with.  Her hair was done with brush nibs but the lilac flower in the bottom right was done with the fine nibs.

Griff was amazed at it.  I printed it off to A4 size and it would look beautiful framed  and hung on the wall.  I have to say that I am very pleased with he way it looks and I will be coloring this again but in the smaller version and turning it into a card ... or two ...

You can get the DVD  from Crafters Companion and it has lots of good tips for perfect coloring every time.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
