Again...So Soon??

Hello again, my friends!

I didn't expect to be back with another share quite this soon...but here I am! :o)

I thought that now would be a good time for me to focus on something new. 
I've managed to collect a number of Spectrum Noir markers recently, 
and I've had a chance to play with them.

This is the very first image that I've coloured with these markers, 
and I must confess that I'm hooked!
I will continue to use my pencils...because I love them
...but you will definitely be seeing more of the Spectrum Noir too. 

Please keep in mind that this is my first effort. 
As with all things...practice makes perfect!
I will continue to practice and have lots of fun doing it!
I didn't think to keep track of the markers I used, 
although I did write down the skintone combination.
I've added the numbers in the list of materials used.

The image is called "A Cuddle Makes it All Better" from All Dressed Up.
You can find it right HERE.

Here's my card:

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock, 
K & Company - Watercolor Bouquet;
Image: All Dressed Up - A Cuddle Makes it All Better;
Spectrum Noir Markers,
(Skintones: FS1, GB2, CR3);
Die: Cheery Lynn Designs - English Tea Party;
Jewels: Eyelet OutLet;
Ribbon: Celebrate It.

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! 
See you soon! :o)

Holy cow Nancy... that is good colouring, and especially for the first time using your markers.
Love the colours on this little gal!

The Cheery Lynn die made a perfect backdrop for your image. The use of SN markers is very skilled in your hand. A very beautiful card. I prefer this fold as my fold of choice and I like an envelope that matches. Thank you so much for joining our 150th challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I thank God for your participation and I pray you will have a day filled with joy.
