Good morning folks and a very happy hump day.

Today at work I am dressing up as a Victorian school marm for our topic this term. I have to be very stern and strict. This should be fun.
As a complete contrast this is my card for today - 
This was another of my Spectrum Noir TV design team samples for the launch of the Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils launch in the USA. I have used Verity Rose Moonstruck stamp from Crafter's Companion which I stamped onto Sheena's stamping card and coloured with the following pencils - 

  • chair - verdigris, night sky, havanna, coffee bean, forest green, viridian, grape, sangria and black
  • hat - red currant, grape, sangria, verdigris, night sky, smoke and pewter
  • skin - cream, eggshell, saddle brown and peach
  • hair - copper, walnut and bark
  • eyes - vintage blue and black
  • ground - stone and earth
  • sky - seal grey

I also used - 

  • Verity Rose paper pad
  • teal and purple core'dinations
  • white/hint of silver centura pearl
  • Verity Rose accessories stamp and die set
  • Spellbinder's oval nesties
  • Die'sire Be-bunni lace border die
  • hickory smoke distress ink
  • white satin ribbon and pearl rom my stash

I stamped and die cut the owl from the accessories kits and then coloured him with the following Spectrum Noir colourblend pencils - 

  • havana, coffee bean, eggshell, saddle brown, canary and crystal clear Sparkle pen

Thank you for stopping by today
