A sneak peek of the new Spectum Noir Blendable Pencils. My first project for CHA.

I am so very excited to share a project I have made, using the new Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils from Crafter's Companion.

Here is a link to the Spectrum Noir Blog where further information and images of these fabulous pencils can be found. 

 The pencils really are a joy to use with a wonderful range of colours, fabulous tonal shades and are so easy to blend.  They also work beautifully with my Spectrum Noir Pens.

Leann will be appearing on Create and Craft on Saturday 11th Jan. 2014  at 4pm GMT and broadcasting from CHA with these lovely new products.

A closer view of this so sweet boy in all of his coloured splendour. 
 I have used the pencils to colour this stamp, including blending the background.
