Hello and welcome...
As the title states 'and now for something completely different' and it is!
 I've been wanting to try the new Spectrum noir Metallic Pencils for a little while and today managed this 'offering'.  The Spectrum noir Colorista Dark Pencil Pad has 16, pre-embossed designs and the metallic pencils come in a 12 piece, these are so soft and creamy and a pleasure to use.  I do think a little more practise is needed though!  When you move the card from side to side the colours have a gorgeous shine to them and I will try to make a short video to let you see what I mean!
Once you've coloured your images it's your choice how to display them.  I've chosen an 8" square white base card and added mats of white then black onto it.  I also scored the white base card with horizontal and vertical lines as I didn't want to add a sentiment
