Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils ROCK!

Hello friends!

Here's a clean and simple card I designed using my new Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils. I LOVE the bright colors and blends I was able to create with these pencils! It looks great against the teal background paper.

The flower stamp is from Crafter's Companion Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy Stamp Set - Bloomin' Beautiful.   This is one of my new favorite floral sets. I love the larger size of the images and how they work perfectly with a standard size card.

To create the flower, I stamped it 2x on white cardstock with black ink - colored and trimmed. I used 2 of the pencil sets to color the flower - Floral and Nature - along with Blending Solution and Paper Blending Stumps.
Pencil Colors:
Flower Center - 103
Flower Yellow - 021, 043
Flower Orange - 043, 025, 026
In the center of the flower, I added dots using a white gel pen - then covered  it with 3D Crystal Lacquer.
Each layer of the flower is popped up with foam adhesive. I tucked some brown jute under the flower and scattered a few Dew Drops around. The "hello" is a diecut that I cut out 4 layers and stacked them. 3 layers in black cardstock and the top layer in white. This gives it stability as well as dimension.
