Daydream Believer

Good afternoon

With it being the school holidays I haven't had much time for crafting the last few days but did manage to find time yesterday to ink up one of the new Swalk stamps.  This sweet image is called 'Daydream Believer' and she has been coloured with Spectrum Noirs

I normally use Copics which I love (sometimes Promarkers) to colour my images but decided try new the Spectrum Noirs.  To be honest at first I wasn't sure I liked them but after some practice I think I am slowly getting there and am actually quite pleased with this image.  I have found I get the best results using Neenah Classic Crest Card which is available from Crafter's Companion.  I have also used them with Ryman's coated card which is okay but for me the pens seem to blend so much better with the Neenah.

Oh Lisa this is so sweet - the image is truly adorable! Colouring looks fab - I thought about the Spectrum Noirs but can't justify the expense as I have so many PM's already and not that good at colouring really!!
Hope the sun decides to put in an appearance again soon.
Enjoy the rest of the holidays.
