Today I have a Christmas card for you using a stamp set from CC Designs called Sweet Penguins. Such a cute stamp set to use on your Christmas cards and so versatile.
I normally only colour with Copic Markers, but I have ordered a set of Spectrum Noir Pencils from Auzz Trinklets N Krafts so decided to try playing with my pencils that I already have. These are a cheaper set from a junk shop we have here who has a rather large art & craft section.
I have used these pencils just the same way your would with Spectrum Noir Pencils or even Prismas. Now the problem I worked out is I have been using them on my X-Press it blending cardstock, this is not the cardstock to be using as it is too smooth hence why my pencils were not blending properly and why I was so frustrated that I gave up on them a long time ago.
I decided while I was playing for the first time on Watercolour paper I would record it for you. Unfortunately you don't see me colouring the last penguin as my noisy children decided they couldn't keep quiet any longer lol. But I will post my finished card here so you can see it finished :-)
