Let It Snow!

Hi & welcome to my small part of the WWW! If you are a regular vistor here you will know I have a slight addiction to different pencils, pens, inks, paints etc. That I use to colour my images with, well today is a first....I have coloured my image today using my new Spectrum Noir pencils. No pens just pencils on their own. Might try them with my pens next time. They are lovely to colour with, think I will be using these a lot.
Don't be to harsh, as it is my first time using them!!

Todays challenge over at My Time To Craft  has a great theme, one I always love doing....
