Spectrum Noir Pencils on Kraft card

hi there crafters
 i do hope your all keeping warn 
 we had a very hard frost come in over night  
flip it's cold here .. 
when i got up it looked like my first card im sharing today out side 
Chilly is not the word lol 

did you catch our Leann  from Crafters Companion
and the fantastic 
Premier of the 
Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils

i sat glued to the TV what a great show
 as i said i have put these pencils through there paces 
experimenting on all different  types of card stock
 kraft card is so popular what a great way to test them !
  i don't normally use Kraft Card so this was a challenge for me 
did i have fun oh yes!!!
 it can be very hard to totally block out the base card color
but not with these beauties
take a look

 this is using the fabulous Sheena Douglass stamp 
 with the Spectrum Noir Pencils and Blending Fluid on the  buildings 
on the roofs that is the White pencil on it's own 
now that to me shows the quality of these pencils 
you are able to get a good coverage with  these pencils
the falling snow is white Pebeo acrylic paint

this one  is using the layering technique 
where you use a light -medium- and dark to get dimension  
 i hope you can see how well they blend
 to a smooth seamless  finish
 i added the tiniest touch of white acrylic paint to the snow then on his wellies for the shine
and finally

 just couldn't resist making a card with this image 
he tickles me  every time is see his expression  go on admit we all feel 
at some point over the festive season a bit frazzled  and grumpy
i know i do 

i used  a blender pencil to blend the colors together 
  i hope i have been able to show you 
 these pencils work brilliant on Kraft Card
 thanks for dropping by today 
 hugs linda xxx
