Today's card is very simple and its for the Spectrum Noir Blog Challenge for August, the theme is nature.
So while demoing the spectrum noir pencils i usually colour a very simple butterfly image in with only 3 Spectrum Noir Pencils pencils to showcase how simple the pencils are to blend on their own. This is with a mixture of colours, it doesn't always have to be 3 shades of the same toning colour. I've coloured a fair few of these now but never finished a card with it. The three pencils i have used are all from the essential set, 11, 56, 67. I've used no blending solution or paper stumps this is just the 3 pencils blended together.
The Card base is made from CC black card stock, I've matted the butterfly onto Sheena's stamping card after stamping a little leaf flourish in shabby shutters distress ink. The butterfly digi is on the spectrum noir DVD but you can also buy a rubber stamp, Flying Colours. The sentiment is from the greetings set of vintage floral sentimentals, I just love these they come in handy time after time.
Hope you like it.
