Coloring Baby Skin With Spectrum Noir AquaBlend Pencils

Hi! Today I am sharing an adorable set of cards that I made for my cousin and her daughters. She is pregnant with baby #3 and her oldest daughter has been praying for a baby brother. So I made them these cards to let them know we are sending lots of Baby Boy Vibes their way! 

She said she did the ring test and it said it was a boy. The ring was right for all 5 of my kids so we're hoping it's right for her too! 

This is the card I made for my cousin and her husband. The image is from the Little Loves Stamp Set by Some Odd Girl. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir AquaBlend Pencils and Clear Sparkle pen on all 3 cards. 

This is the card I made for her oldest.  

And this is the one I made for the littlest one. She's pretty rambunctious so I didn't add any extra bits to this and kept it quick and simple. If she's like my littlest she'll have it all wrinkled up by dinner, lol. But that's OK, I made it for her and I want her to enjoy it anyway she wants to. 

I have a video tutorial on the Spectrum Noir Blog today showing how I colored this image. I would love for you to check it out! 

Spectrum Noir AquaBlend Pencils used: Coral, Soft Red, Charcoal Brown, Ruby, Fossil Grey, Aegean Blue, Deep Blue, as well as the Clear Sparkle Pen.


Since sending these cards my cousin found out the baby's gender. It's a...
