Here’s the beautiful Fairy Sitting on a Toadstool  by Aurora Wings .But then all Mitzi’s images are beautiful 😉 So…I bought some Crafter’s Companion Spectrum Noir Pencils way before Christmas and in my usual style they’ve been sat in a box – until now that is!To be fair this is the first card I’ve made in a long while as my computer took a turn for the worse and crashed.Feeling quite pleased that with some help from my thirteen-year-old son we managed to set it back to factory settings and got it running again I really wasn’t prepared for it to go and die completely within a week 😦 So now I’m left with the headache of finding someone reputable to fix it…For now I’ve got loan of DH’s laptop.Wish he’d cleaned it before he let me borrow it tho’ !Urgh!

Anyway back to the card…I printed her out on Crafter’s Companion Neenah Desert Storm Card bought specifically for the purpose of trying out my new pencils.I did buy a ton of it (well maybe not quite) as my local craft warehouse had a whopping 30% off!The fairy and toadstools were coloured just using the pencils to merge the different colour tones together.For the grass,foliage and sky I was a bit more scribbly and blended it out with the Blending Soloution and a large paper stump.Have to say I was impressed at how the sky blended out as I was a bit worried the scratchy strokes would still show but,nah,they’re really not there! 😛 So I was quite pleased at my first proper go with these but,as always,there’s room for improvement!
