Hi everyone!! I was finally able to sit down with mum and do a bit of cardmaking yesterday. We are preparing something each for the upcoming challenge at ATSM on Wednesday morning. I can't wait to share with you what mum comes up with.
The reason for my post today is to share a card with you that I have made for my god daughter's upcoming birthday and it is something I have coloured using Spectrum Noir pens.
Speaking of Spectrum Noir.... my stash of pens is building nicely. I have some awesome news too. Over on the Spectrum Noir blog, you have the opportunity to become a certified colourist using their pens. I decided to watch their tutorials and send off my accreditation test. Guess what? I passed! Notice the blinkie on the top right hand side of my blog? That's showing you that I am now certified!! Yay! I wasn't expecting to pass the test on the first try but the wonderful Jennie Black sent me an email letting me know I had passed - I was over the moon!
So, onto my card -
I have used a digital stamp from Tiddly Inks called "Wryn Spring Bling". I have printed her onto blender paper.
I used a couple of tutorials for this image. Her hair was done using a tutorial by Lis M and the background was done using a tutorial by Dilyana Kupenska.
There is just a wealth of information on this site and especially if you are just starting out using the Spectrum Noir pens.
Here are the colours I have used on this image -
Background - TB1, TB2, TB3, BT4. Blender
Dress - TB1, TB2, TB3
Flowers - PP1, PP2, PP3, PP5
Face - FS1, FS3, FS4, FS9, CR3 (blush)
Hair and shoe - GB2, GB8, GB10, EB5
The papers are all from Stampin Up. The sentiment is from the Sketched Birthday set and cut out using my Itty Bitty dies (SU).
The ribbon I pinched from mum's stash.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Milk Coffee Challenges - Colouring
7 Kids College Fund - Markers
Tuesday Throwdown - Birthday Party
Polka Doodles - Birthday Girl
The Ribbon Girls - Birthday Card
613 Avenue Create - AG with twist to use a sentiment
That's all for me today. I will see you back here on Wednesday. Take care!
Thanks so much for looking xx
