Love

Today I am sharing the card I made for the new challenge with Spectrum Noir. The theme this month is love, of course. You can use a lovey image or just a Valentine's Day color palette for your Spectrum Noir projects this month.

I used the image Kiss A Prince Tia from Some Odd Girl.

I colored her with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (colors below).


I added a lot of pink and red embellishments to my card. 



I also used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens on Tia's crown (Sterling Silver) and on the frog's crown too (Spun Gold).

Clothes: CR6 CR4 CR2 CR7

Stupid Cupid


Today I have a card I made for Valentine's Day. It's more of an anti-Valentine, Stupid Cupid. 

I just love this funny image from Make It Crafty and couldn't wait to make a Valentine's Day card for my sister with him. The image is called Runaway Cupid and I colored it with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (colors below).


I cut all the elements on the card in the silhouette from plain white paper. I used Mini Distress Inks (Abandoned Coral, Spun Sugar & Picked Raspberry) and the Spectrum Noir Ctystal Clear Sparkle pen to add color to them. The patterned paper is by Doodlebug Studio from a few years ago- still trying to use up that stash! I finished it off with a few dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops. 

Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers Used:
Skin: FS9 FS4 FS1
Hair: IG8 IG6 IG4
Wings: GG4 GG3 GG1
Sash/ Bubbles/ Arrows: BP7 BP6 BP2 PP6 PP3 PP1 DR4
Eyes: BT2 Blender

Love You


Today I am sharing a Valentine's Day card that I made with one of the super adorable Bebuuni Stamps from Crafter's Companion. 

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens and Sparkle Pens. 

The pink background paper is from the English Cottage Garden Paper Pad. The other papers are just from my scrap stash. 

I finished the card off with some flowers, a doily and some pearl accents and wood veneer heart that I colored with matching Illustrator pens and then colored over with the clear Sparkle Pen. 

Illustrator Pens used: Vintage Pink, Cocktail Pink, Rose Blush, Fruit Pink, Dusty Pink, Rose, Blossom, Wisteria.
