Spring Flowers!

I got some coloring in with Spectrum Noir markers.  I am still learning about their colors and what works well blending and what doesn't, but I love the challenge of a coloring learning curve.

This digi image is from Some Odd Girl, Daisy Mae.  The flowers are from Crafter's Companion Colorista Elements 1 stamp set, and the die cut flowers are from Crafter's Companion Edge'ables Floral Dance.  The white clouds are embossed with Crafter's Companion embossing folder Birthday Party Scattered Dots.

IB1, IB2, IB3 = clothing
CG3, CT1, CT2, BO3, RB2, HB1, HB2, AP1, AP2, AP3, GY4, CT4 = flowers
FS2, FS4, FS9, CR3 = skin
EB3, TN3, TN1 = Hair
BG1, BG3 = shadows

Quick peek at Watercoloring with Spectrum Sparkle Pens

Watch how easy it is to watercolor using Spectrum Sparkle Pens on Spectrum Aqua Watercolour cardstock.

The digi stamp is on the CD that comes with the 2017 Spring Edition of Crafter's Companon Inspiration Magazine (available May 9 on HSN, more info available HERE).

I merged the cupcakes together and added the sentiment, printed it, and watercolored.

I also used products by Core'dinations, Freckled Fawn, Echo Park, and Doodlebug.

You take the cake!

I needed a quick birthday card so I decided it was time to play with my Spectrum Aquablend pencils and Tiny Baker from Some Odd Girl.

I stamped her using Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink onto Spectrum Aqua watercolour cardstock.  I colored her up quick and added some embellies.  It's ready to mail!
