Spectrum Noir Coloring Tutorial

Part 2 of my Fair Skin and Red Hair Coloring Tutorial can be found on the Spectrum Noir Blog today. 

Crafter's Companion February Projects

So I have been Super Slacker this month! Between the kids being sick and me being sick and some other stressful things happening, my blog was pretty well ignored for the most part. I have been creating, just not blogging. 

Today I wanted to go ahead and share a few of the projects I made for Crafter's Companion this month. 

First I have a set of cards I made with the Sheena Falling Feathers Stamp set 

 I stamped the feathers in Versamark and then added clear embossing powder to them. I them went over the background with some Distress Inks and splattered some drops of water on them. I finished them off with sentiments and some soft ribbon.

Next, I have a gift bag that I created with one of the Colorista Glittered Coloring pads.

I just colored it, cut it to the sized I needed and adhered it to the bag. I also cut some flowers from the leftover piece of paper. The glittered coloring pads are so pretty by themselves, I really didn't need to add much to this bag. 

 And last, but not least, is a card I made with one of the Eastern Promise Colorista coloring pages. 

I really love the Pear Green and Cyan Colorista Markers so I decided to use just those 2 colors on this. I kinda love how it turned out.  I stamped the sentiment in a matching ink and finished it off with some Nuvo Crystal drops. 

That's all I've got for now! Hopefully I be a better blogger once March rolls around (tomorrow!)

Valentine's From Space

Hey there! Today I am sharing a late Valentine's Day Card. Well, the card was delivered right on time, just waaaaaaaaaayyyyyy behind on my blog posting! 

This was the card I made for my oldest. I was trying to avoid too much pink girly lovey dovey crap (LOL) on his card. So I went with a not so traditional Valentine image, Alien 2 by Scrapper's Delights. 

My original plan was to have little hearts shooting out of his gun, but as you can see I forgot about it while I was putting the card together. I think it turned out just fine anyway. My son liked it, that's all that really matters. Of course, he like the giftcard that was inside even more! 

Have a great week! Hopefully I'll be blogging more often once we all get over these colds, AGAIN!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

A Bit More Time to Craft | Anything Goes
Classic Design Team Open Challenge
Crafts Glaore Encore | Anything Goes

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).
