Brand new Spectrum Aquablend pencils

Have you got the new Spectrum Aquablend pencils yet?
Well I can tell you they are stunning, they may be my new favourites!

 I recently made this card for the launch of the new pencils, they are one of those products you want to reach for time and time again...

The stamps are of course from Sheena Douglass, and gave me plenty of scope to use lots of colours.

The colours I used were:
Cherry, Strawberry, Carrot, Fig
Grapefruit, Banana, Sapphire, Dark Slate

Although the butterflies look as though they are cut out and mounted...they aren't! Its just a bit of clever shading with the Dark Slate pencil, I did in fact fussy cut out the areas around them, leaving them in the base card, it took a little patience and a very sharp blade in my craft knife!

I hope you get a chance to play with these soon, you certainly won't be disappointed, and if you do please share you makes with us either on the Spectrum Facebook page or down below in the comments box.

Happy Colouring
