New illustrator pens from Crafter's Companion - i'm in love!!


Good morning all


I have a huuuuge(!) card to share today 
(its around 8 x 10 inches)
but I really needed the space to give this lovely image centre stage and have space for my hessian and embellies too!!

I coloured this up with the fabulous new Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens that are being launched today.  I can honestly say that these are my favourite pens ever, they blend so beautifully and have a wonderful fine detail nib as well as a brush nib which blends like a dream.  It took me a couple of attempts to get it right because you need to use a really light touch, but that's no different to any new pens!  
If you colour - you need these pens!!


This is what I did

The image is an old favourite from Justinklined called Serenity a lovely summy image but also used it a couple of times before for retirement cards 

I used the following pen colours for this image
DG2,DG3,GB2,GB4,GB7,GG2,GY3,YG1,YG2,IG1,CR11,PP1,PP6,MB1,MB2,BT1

The sentiment is from a Fiskars set called Make a wish - on of my go sentiment sets - there are some lovely ones as well as a good old happy birthday - so you can't go wrong

The papers are a very old K and Co and sadly it was my last sheet of this one : (

hope to see you there!
