Hi everyone,

And yet another post this week....what has gotten in to me! 
Well.....I've been expanding my colouring options and today I have a card coloured
 with Spectrum Noir markers.  Last week I was in my local HomeSense store
and found 2 packs on sale,so after much deliberation they made their way into my basket.

I've coloured a lovely digi that I bought from Delicious Doodles before they closed.
The image is called Helebore and can now be found here on Teri's new Etsy location called ArtiDoodles.

A very simple layout for me....hope the patterns aren't hurting your eyes?
  Graphic 45 papers used and ribbon from my stash.
Spectrum Noir colours used:
Flower: CR1, FS7, CR4, CR2, CR6
GB4, GB1
Leaves:  LG3, LG4, LG1

I was limited in the colours I used but am happy with the outcome
.... and I found them easy to work with.

I am entering the following challenges: 
Crafty Girls Creations #3 - Anything Goes
Try it On Tuesday Challenge - Sending you flowers

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Pat, glad you are having fun playing with your new finds. My Dad tells me I can't believe you are coloring as an adult, hehe. He doesn't understand how difficult it is on the techniques of these markers - it's not like grade school. You are so talented.

Simple, yet very eye catching and classy. I think the papers make a statement on this card, not only the image, it's beautifully designed.

Stunning coloring with your Spectrum Noirs Pat. I find them a dream to work with. If you are on FB please enter into the August Challenge, due to end soon or post on the Spectrum Noir FB page. I am sure it would be shared by SN.

Stunning colouring, a beautiful card, love your papers too, but it's the image that catches the eye.

thanks for showing me that I could if I try VERY hard I could get similar results, (similar not the same!) I have just bought SN markers and trying hard to colour with them
