You and Me, coloring tutorial for Spectrum Noir.

Hello to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.
I would like to share my colouring tutorial for Spectrum Noir.   
This month I have coloured the sweet Lili of the Valley stamp 'You and Me'.  I have  again used the new Spectrum Aqua markers with the focus on the use of the fine nib, to create dimension and detail.  I am really enjoying expoloring the use of these fabulous markers.


Details of Spectrum Noir products used to colour this image are in the tutorial, which you will find here. I so enjoyed colouring this cute image and hope you will find time to visit and view.  This card is a very CAS creation for me, as I have made it for my husbands birthday.  Fortunately he loved it.

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