Fairyopolis sparkle

 Hi all I have been practicing my colouring technique with my spectrum noir pens. I decided to choose this Fairyopolis image from Crafter's Companion. I must say i'm not 100% sure of the colours or colouring of this image. But hey ho I've made it into a card and this is it.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog

Hi Rachel, Gorgeous card! Love this backing paper and beautiful image. Your colouring looks good to me ... it does take time to learn the technique and what colours blend well together. Practice makes perfect. I have been colouring with them several months now and i'm still learning ... I also colour with Promarkers and Copics and find you need to use a slightly different technique with Speccies because they are more inky. Hope that makes sense. I am sure with the help of Leann's DVD and practice you will soon become more confident with colouring.
