Gorgeous Nic love the pencil colouring. I'm so glad you've put the colours you used especially the hair. I have bought these pencils and haven't had chance to use them yet. I'm not sure about the 3 colours they have put together. I thought I'd go by numbers as the colours seem to blend better. I hope to give them a go this week
