Need for Speed!!!!

Hi all, I hope you are all well.

I’m back today with another Scheduled post, this time to show you a card I made for my Cousin for his Birthday using the Need for Speed Digital Stamp from Kenny K. This is the first Kenny K Digital stamp I have coloured and I must say I do like it. I think I may have to get some more in the future.


Again I have coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir pens and then have added Glossy Accents to the Car and Eyes to give that glazed, shiny effect. The colour of the car changed slightly when adding the Glossy Accents for some reason. Luckily the image still looked ok otherwise I wouldn’t have been a happy bunny!!!

The Colours I have used are:

Character: FS2, FS4, TN2, IG1, Blender, PP6, CR5, CR7, EB5, EB8, TN7, TN5, TB2, TB3

Car – PP6, DR2, DR3, DR6, OR2, OR3, CT4, GB3, IG6, IG7, IG8, IG10

Outline: IG1, IG2

Peel off Sentiment and Gems: True Black


Here’s a close up of the coloured image

Saturated Canary–Smokin Hot Birthday!!!

Hi all back again with  another scheduled post. This time for my Cousin’s Birthday. I made this card back in mid July.
I have used a Saturated Canary Digi Stamp. I love the summer feel of this image. I hadn’t done any colouring with my Spectrum Noir Pens for quite some time before colouring this image and I’ve got to say I am quite pleased with the results.
