So, I thought it was about time I started using my Spectrum Noir pens, being as I *nearly* have the full set. I coloured in the blank colour chart to begin with then followed a few tuts on the Spectrum Noir website (Skin tutorial and hair colour combinations). I was a bit disappointed as 6 of the pens have already dried up yet I haven't used them, so go figure!  The tut I used for the skin and hair can be downloaded from here. I am really pleased with how this came out as normally my colouring is pants! The colours I used are {Skin} TN1, TN2 & FS1{Hair} HB1, HB2, HB3 & LV2 {Clothes} PL3 & BT6. I also dusted off my Sew Easy tool (I have only used it the once - oops lol) and done a bit of stitching down the side of the card in Silver thread!
