Spectrum Noir July tutorial with Neat and Tangled- Fun Background with Spectrum Noir Aquablend Pencils

Hey all,I hope you are all well and having a lovely weekend ? 
I wanted to share a couple of cards I made for my July tutorial over at Spectrum Noir Blog which can be found here It is a really fun and different technique to use with your Aquablend, or other watercolor pencils. 
I have also used a couple of stamps by Neat and Tangled. 
 Ok don’t laugh but I have had these stamps for months now, but they have been a look at and stroke stamps, I know I am strange !!
 But one of my things for this year is to start using ALL my craft supplies, mainly because like these stamps I have some pretty awesome stuff that just doesn’t get used.
But I am SO pleased I used them, the So Very Blessed stamp I masked off the sides, the stamp has a really pretty leaf arrangement around each side, but for this card I wanted it as simple as possible. 
 The fun thing about this technique is it can be used in so many ways and is SO simple.
I will be using it to creating sprinkles on cupcake stamps I have, if  you add less water they really do look like sprinkles, you can see in the So Very Blessed Card in some areas what I mean.
 On the one above I used my Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen to create some sparkly splatters.
I really like doing this to add just a little bit of sparkle and interest. 

I didn’t want to, or think I needed to add much to these cards, so I die cut them using Stitched rectangle dies, added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and mounted them onto black cardbase. 
I hope you checked out the video tutorial, I really do encourage you to try this technique and if you do make sure you share your creations with me. 
Thank you for stopping by. 
Have an amazing day, and happy crafting
