Crisalis colouring

Evening all!

Well, it's very late to be blogging, but i've had a busy day with my 2 shows on Create & Craft, and then i've been out for dinner with one of my friends down here from Ideal World, and i've just got back to the flat, and I wanted to share the pictures of what  made during the 7pm show for anyone who missed it...

This was the card I did live on air - I chose this image to demonstrate specifically with in that show because it was Dawn's favorite... It's the Perfect Day stamp from the new Crisalis Classics Stamp collection

I didn't get chance (as is always the case) to finish the colouring demonstration, so I thought you might appreciate seeing it up close...

And the Spectrum Noir pen colours I used were:

Skin: FS2, FS4, FS8

Hair: GB8, GB9

Pink Top: PP1, PP3, PP5

Blue Sjirt: TB1, TB2, TB3

Petticoat: TN1, TN2

Hat: TN1, TN2, PP1, PP3, PP5, TB1, TB2

Table: EB1, EB2

Basket: TN2, TN3

Bread: TN1, TN2

And the sentiment is from the same stamp set, and also I think the whole card is just finished off beautifully with the matching insert!

I also did this quickie demo too earlier on in the show... I chose this one because it reminded me of my dad when he was younger (from what I can make out of the stories he used to tell me!)

If you did manage to tune in for the shows, then I hope you enjoyed them, and if you missed them, then hopefully this post is useful!

    I love using my Spectrum Noirs, and find your letters on the diary so useful, because it is such a help to have an idea of the colours used, I do find the Spectrum so easy to use and have just about every colour, I did begin colouring with Copics and Promarkers but much prefer the Sprectum Noirs,they are so easy to match up to produce a perfect blend, I have sold quite a lot of my other brands,
    Keep up the good work.
