Strongman !!

Hi Everybody,

Here  for your  amusement is my  Strongman Image from  Just Inklined ... and I think he is wonderful.

It is from the CD "The Next Big Thing" which sadly is no longer available.

Spectrum Noir Colors Used ...
Skin FS3 FS4 TN2 
Hair/Boots IG4 IG6 IG8
Leotard 060 059 108 044 114 116 118

The weights bar was created from a  BBQ stick colored with SN True Black and black card for weights on either side

I had so much fun coloring in this fella and I am really pleased with the way he turned out.  

The Birthday stamp was free with a magazine subscription and the embossing is the Bricks and Bark from Spellbinders

I  am  happy that the  color lists for the  pens and pencils  being used is  useful to  many of you and  thanks for  letting me  know 

More  tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  5. Good morning Christina,
    Your fella's costume could do with being up to date as he is going to get laughed at going to gym in his 1920's outfit. Glad you had fun with him, i have always loved colouring in and so so pleased that it is now taken seriously instead of just thought for the children. Thank you Christina for your sense of fun,
    Love and crafty hugs

  8. I follow your blog every day...would not miss it! I just got the spectrum noir pens( mostly your influence) I am wondering in my newbie mind, why did you use some pencils along with the pens? I am very new to the color world and need to know these things, ha! Ha! Absolutely love your color numbers given to us!
