Morning lovelies. I hope everyone is well, I know a lot of you have snow at the moment so stay warm.
I wanted to share with you a card i made using one of my favorite christmas stamp sets and my Spectrum Noir Aquas, and the new totaly amazing Spectrum Noir sparkle Pens.
How cute is he ? I have to say I have been trying to track the stamp set down here in the uk and had no luck, but my good friend Lis helped me and i now finally own it…so a huge thank you too Lis.
I have coloured the little fella using my Spectrum Noir Aqua pens (colours & links at the bottom of this post). If you haven’t seen or used Spectrum Noir Aqua pens they are waterbased markers that have such vibrancy to them and are so easy to blend.
I have also used the new Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens…which trust me you NEED. They are waterbased with tons of sparkle and come in either packs of 3 or two sets of 12. The 12 sets come in brilliant little hard plastic case which keep them nice and neat aswell as looking great.
They come in lots of lovely colours as well as clear. And being waterbased you can blend them together and also using water.
The background on this card was made by using watercolour cardstock, i then used the AquaMarine Sparkle pen from the Autumn-Winter 12 set, I then brushed over with a number 3 brush dipped in water to blend it out and soften the colour.
This Picture shows the sparkle
I have used the clear sparkle on the little bird house, Snowman and the snowhills. What I also love is that it isn’t “in your face” sparkle, it is just enough 🙂
The “snow” on the birdhouse was done using Stamping up white embossing powder, I used the same embossing powder for the snowflakes(they are from Lawn Fawn Critters in the Snow) and sentiment.
I really had so much fun making this card and will be making some more in different colours to send to people.
Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting
