Colourblend Pencil Birthday Card

Morning everyone, I'm starting to feel like someone is stealing time from me again, I can't believe we are half way through September already! And COLD? Last week it was stinking hot and was in shorts and vest today I'm in socks and jumpers, seriously considering putting the heating on!

Well its been a busy few weeks, I've been doing a lot of design work behind the scenes for shows already on and upcoming on Hochander, and received some exciting Christmassy bits today for future shows, sorry to swear there!

But last week was my good friend Maggie's Birthday, she loves music and purple, so here's the card I made her...!

The music paper is Maggie May by Rod Stewart...guess what her surname is? and yes she does have an uncle Rod, but not the actual one!
If you are wondering why I spelt her name wrong, its because me and my bonkers girlfriends all have nicknames, I can't remember why they came about but I'm Nicodemus, we also have a Reet, Rosie, Wendos & Trees!!! I know don't ask...
Anyway, I coloured the image with my Colourblend Pencils from Spectrum Noir:

Skin- Vanilla, Rose Peach, Saddle Brown, Geranium
Hair- Cider, Ginger, Walnut, Bark...
Flowers - Geranium, Fireweed, Boysenberry
Leaves- Grass Amazon Green, Holly
Banner- Periwinkle, Violet Blue, Deep Purple

The image is from Saturated Canary, I managed to grab some of the images before Krista closed down the shop last week, So sad to loose such an awesome site but I totally understand and respect her reasons for doing it.

I hope you have all been doing lots of colouring, keep doing it its good for the soul!!
Until next time
Happy Colouring!!!
