New pencils......

Wow I can't believed it's been nearly a whole week since I blogged, I've been busy, busy completing orders for people, so busy I've had not time to play wit my Spectrum Noir pencils that Hubby bought me for my birthday!!  So today I actually had a bit of spare time and managed a little play, I think I still need to master the art of colouring with the pencils as I'm so used to Alcohol markers, but I'm pretty pleased with the results

And the finished result.........

I'm actually really pleased with it.  

The image was free with a magazine, papers from stash, the sentiment is from Crafters Companion range, flowers cut from Spellbinders die.

A little bit of Frou Frou...........

Good afternoon my lovelies......

Well last night I had a crafty evening with two of my crafty friends, nearly everything was carted down from my craft room into the dining room which was no mean feat believe me  ;) by the time they had added all their crafty stash to the equation there was no room left on the table for us to work....so a little re jigging was need lol.  We had the most wonderful evening but time flew far to quickly, and a few glasses of wine were consumed!

This is one of my creations which is for a friends birthday next week, I hope she likes it

I love the colour combinations of the pastel blue and pink, the stamp is from CRAFTERS COMPANION part of the Frou Frou range.  She is stamped and coloured with alcohol markers and finished with glitter on hat and dress
