Spectrum Noir

Hello everyone. I have finally gotten the opportunity to upload at least one of my Spectrum Noir colored cards. This is the one I showed for the Vee-dio. You can check it out on YouTube if you haven't already.


I have been experimenting with different paper brands and thus far my two top faves are the Borden and Riley and the Manga artist paper. I did have a new one arrive that was on back-order and hope to get to play with it this weekend. This small stamp is from the dollar bin at Michaels. I love picking up these small sentiments. The swirls are part of the stamp image. I cut it out using the scalloped rectangle nestability die.


Although my camera angles did not pick up on it, but I used the Sakura clear stardust pen to accentuate the leaf veins. I must admit that my background highlighting still needs loads of work.


The leaves on the bottom are from the same Martha Stewart set as the large focal one. I colored these in with the Sakura glaze gel pens. I love how subtle the sparkle is. Sometimes ya gotta hold back on the bling. Did I just write that? LOL

As always thanks for stopping by. Gotta go and work on something for Father's Day.
Until then.

    This looks like a fine card for Fathers Day. Maybe with a different sentiment.
