Dare...


Morning everyone, I do hope everyone is safe with this awful weather. 

Now those who are on my Facebook page would have seen me saying how fantastic the new Spectrum Noir pencils are...I truly love am in love with these pencils !! 
Spectrum noir challenge  is currently Masculine, so I decided to to make a card and enter...and here it is...


I have used the image Dare from Mo Manning, the sentiment also comes with the image, I decided to go for a travel feel to the card...and of course had to be vintage ! 

Here is a closer look at Dare...I have used the pencils to give definition on this image and I cannot believe how fantastic they blend....I have not even used blending solution ! I really think these will take your colouring to another level and cannot recommend them enough...I was very silly and only got the Essentials set, but I will be purchasing the other sets. I know currently these are only available on Create & Craft, But I *think*  they will be released elsewhere around April time. 

Here is a list of colours and items used- 

Kraft Card 
Paper is from my Stash and Papermania All Aboard 
Image & Sentiment Dare Mo Manning. 
Cogs cut on Silhouette Cameo and embossed using Globecraft & Piccolo Copper Kettle
Crafters Companion Neenah Card
