A little spring card to brighten your day - colour blending practice

Hello to everyone and Happy Monday.  I hope you are well and had a good weekend.

I have a sweet little card to share with you today featuring Goosey Gander from Sugar Nellie.  


I am a bit obsessed with blending colour tones at the moment and the new Spectrum Noir marker are an absolute dream to blend with. 
 Here is a link to a blending tutorial which I have found so useful. 
 I have also used the flicking technique to colour the hair of this cute little girl using the new Spectrum Noir Brush Nibs.  

List of materials used to make this card.
Wonderful Sugar Nellie image.
Spectrum Noir markers used:
Skin:  FS2, FS4, FS8, TN1, TN2
Hair:  TN1-4, EB2-4
Clothes:  CT1-4, IB1-3, TN1-4 plus blender pen
Goose:  CT2-4, OR1, TN4, IG1-2
Ground: BG1-2, TN2-4
Dei'sire Heart Doily Cutting Die
Papers are from my stash
Centura Pearl Pastel Card from Crafter's Companion
Glitter Card
Flowers and ribbon from my stash.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card and read this post,

Sending crafty hugs to all from,
