Blowing Dandelions.... DIGITALLY SWEET - #69

Happy New Year to you all and a New Year with Digitally Sweet, and as I'm now sticking around for a while longer, I though I would start 2014 with a C & S (clean and simple) card.

This weeks selection is 'blowing dandelions' from Digi Darla Designs. 

Here is my creation...

I used my new Spectrum Noir pens to colour this image and to be honest, I was quite impressed. Took a bit of getting used to and think I may still need a bit more practice getting used to the new colour system but still...

I coloured in the image and used a corner punch. I inked the background to create the illusion of a pink/blue sky.

I mounted the image on to brown parcel paper and added some green floral sprigs and flowers.

To finish I added a pink bow and some buttons.

Bits and piece...

* Spectrum Noirs - PP1, PP3, PP5, BP2, CT3, CT4, GB5, GB8, TN7, TN8, TN2, TN7, FS3
* Distress Inks - Victorian Velvet, Chipped Sapphire
* Brown parcel paper
* Ribbon
* Buttons
* Floral sprigs and flowers
