Blend Of The Week #6 {Blue Waters}

I seem to be having a bad habit of getting these Blend of the Week posts up late. Better late than never though. Hopefully now that we are falling back into our school routine I will be able to get myself more organized too! 

The Blend of the week this week is Blue Water. This time I used it color the cupcake on this Birthday Elephant image from Drawn With Character

The color blend from darkest to lightest is BT7 TB4 TB3 TB2

Blue is one of the colors that I really struggled with when I first started using the Spectrum Noir markers. I think this is a really nice basic blue color.

Have a great day!

September Spectrum Noir Challenge- Embossing

Happy September! I had a great summer but Fall is my favorite season so I am thrilled to see September on my calendar.


A new month means a new challenge for Spectrum Noir. The theme this month is embossing (wet or dry). I chose dry embossing with the Scruffy Little Kittens - Dollie image from Crafter's Companion. 

I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir Markers and used a bubbles embossing folder on the background papers. I used another embossing folder on the pink piece of background paper. I finished the card off with some lace and little flowers. 

And here is the pin-able color palette.

Lacy Sunshine Back To School Challenge {Guest Designer}

There's a new challenge at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge blog today. I am so excited to be the Guest Designer for this challenge. 

The theme is Back to School. Just in time, my kids start school tomorrow! I have mixed feelings about it this year as I have 2 starting preschool. 

For my card I used the Kenna - Back to School image from Lacy Sunshine. I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers (palette below), and used background papers from my stash. I also cut out the Back to School sentiment in glitter paper with my Silhouette. I really do love that glitter paper. 

Here are some close up photos of the card and the color palette.
