Hello to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.  I would like to share a step by step tutorial on colouring sun-kissed skin as my monthly tutorial for Spectrum Noir.  I have used the stunning image - Toe in the Sand from Saturated Canary.

List of materials used to make this card:  
Image – Toe in the Sand – Saturated Canary digital image
Spectrum Nior Markers and Blendable Pencils listed with colouring instructions here.

Prima flower, pearl button and pearls from my stash.

Just a quick reminder of our Spectrum Noir June challenge - create a background.  My tutorial card would be suitable for entry into the challenge, because of the dot detailed background.  We would love for you to join us, using your Spectrum Noir markers and/or pencils.
