Spectrum Noir and Stampfairy

I Just can't help myself...I bought another pack of spectrum noir pens, this time the reds, so I have the reds and the browns now and I'm trying to get the hang of colouring with them. I don't know about you but I use a different technique with every pen type, don't know why but I colour with copics, promarkers and now spectrum noir pens in slightly different ways. Anyway, I have started making my Christmas cards as I am always asked to make cards for people a month before Christmas and I end up rushing through them and running out of cards for myself, this year I will be prepared! I won some gorgeous stampfairy images last week and I adore them, I try to keep my Christmas cards simple and these little cuties are so easy to colour, I've added some stickles and glossy accents and I'm chuffed with how they turned out.
This is my first one and I've almost finished my second using a cute little snowman. I've added some ribbon and cute little jingle bells. Hope your having a great weekend, currently watching finding nemo .....again! I swear I could act in it but the kids seem to love it (my 17 year old kid that is lol) 
Here are the spectrum noir colours I've used:

Well you've certainly got the knack already with these pens Donna, this is so cute and your bear is coloured so beautifully. Have a few colours but not sure if I want to collect more or not. The jury is out lol.

Annette said...

Congrats on your win at Stampfairy, you're putting them to great use. I was going to buy some Spectrum Noirs and read some reviews that they were not as good as Copics, but they are a whole lot cheaper. I'm interested to know if you get on OK with them !

Thanks for joining our sparkle challenge at StampFairy this week.
