Spectrum Noir Accreditation

I got fab news last night - I completed the Spectrum Noir colouring accreditation program whilst on holiday in Scotland last week. I submitted my work on Sunday and received an email from Jennie last night to say I had passed!!!
This has given me the incentive to do more colouring and what better to colour than one of Crafter's Companion's lovely Mulberry Wood characters.

I adore this lovely little pup, he looks so forlorn...
I stamped him onto Neenah card stock and coloured him and his postbox with my Spectrum Noirs
A little white gel pen highlights the snow.
I used my lovely new Ebosser and xcut dies to cut him out
I matted him onto some co-ordination card stock
And used Marianne poinsettia die to make the flower
The backing paper is from Lili of the Valley and the boarder from Mulberry Wood card stock.
A little snowflake charm and some red gems just adds a finishing touch.
I had planned on entering him into Krafty Hands challenge but was a little bit late!
