Thinking of You with Spectrum Noir!

Hi!
I created this card, inspired by THIS tutorial! Since I don't have any Aqua Tints, I substituted them with my Sparkle Markers.


I used a Sheena embossing folder as my guide and painted in it with Aqua Markers (Aquamarine, Wildflower, Bud Green, and Meadow) and a water bursh, then used Sparkle Markers (Emerald Green and Peony) to add low lights and shimmer.  To get the Sparkle Markers to blend into the Aquas, I used a water brush. 


The sentiment was stamped on Black Pearl cardstock and then adhered to more Black Pearl cardstock!

Thanks for stopping by today!

It's Your Brrr-thday with Spectrum Noir!

Hi!
I wanted to share a super cute card I created using Aqua Markers.  I used colors Black, Orange, Blossom, Purple, Green, Yellow, Kingfisher, and Charcoal.


I placed a stencil on the background and 'painted' it in, also using Aquas. Everything was stamped onto Spectrum Noir Watercolour Cardstock.


To add an extra touch, I grabbed my Crystal Clear Sparkle Pen to add some shimmer to the penguin!

Thanks for stopping by today!
