I love your cards. I am just finding out about Spectrum Noir colors and want to try them all. We have been talking about them on my stamping list. We have always used the .".other" kind so we are excited to find out about these and how to use them. They look like something we would love. Pencils would be great, we are itinerant ministers and travel so my stamping goes with me. Spectrum noir pencils would be easier to take. Thank you for sharing your awesome cards with us.

Amy#8546(TheTigersHaven) said...

Very cute cards. I am really loving the backgrounds on both. The dragonfly one is my favorite. It just really pops out at me. I think it may be the pink. I tend to use those colors more myself. great job coloring both cards.

Jean said...

Wow - so cute! Love the colors and coloring!
