Remember the Coloring ...

Click to enlarge
Hi Everybody,

Todays card is created using a digital image from Just Inklined  ... it is one of the many images on the CD "The Next Big Thing"

I have colored it with Spectrum Noir pens and pencils and the colors I have  used are ...

Pens      -TB1 TB2 TB4 DG2 DG4 IG2
Pencils  - 069, 070, 076, 045, 048, 049 and 001 was used to highlight the petals and  leaves

Sets of both pens and pencils are available from JGD Crafts   and I have to say that the pencils are fabulous to work with and enhance your coloring immensely

The pointillism background is using the pens in the same colors I use to color the flower and I have gone around the whole flower with a grey shadow using IG2

The ribbon ...  which just happened to match ... is from my "Stash" and the centre of the bow is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The large pearls are part of  Want2Scrap  Bulk Buy Bling and is a real bargain

Just a reminder that there is a "Give Away" running until next Sunday and so if you would like to win the goodies on offer then add your name to the list ..... Bank Holiday Give Away 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
