Playing with my pens...

  Hi Everyone from a Very Wet East Coast of Scotland. Boy has the rain been heavy again. Perfect for some crafting though as you cant get out!!! 
I have been playing with my Spectrum Noirs. Did  you know they have a blog with loads of Tutorials from the Very Talented DT. I have combined 2 here for my card.  
Taylor has been using  Core Colours so just using the Pens in each Family Colour pack. I have used the Yellows for this one.
Linda had been colouring on Pearl cardstock. She was using the White Snow Centura Pearl Card. Now I hadnt thought of using it for colouring, I usually use it for making wee boxes so had a go, It looks lovely as the sparkle has come through the pen colour. Not sure if you can see it too well in the picture I have taken.
