Hello there! I know, TWO posts in one week after being gone for so long!? Who am I and what have I done with Britt!?
Well, I spent much of today playing with some new tools! One of my favorites of these new things is my new set of Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers by Crafter's Companion.
I have purchased the small sets of markers that are available at Joann's (With coupons of course!) in the greens, browns, reds, purples, essentials, greys, and yellows. I was really interested in filling in some of the color holes that I find I have in my Copic collection (I stopped buying them as much because they are SO expensive).
Guess what!? I LOVE these! The results are amazing for the price and I KNOW I will need them all eventually!
I signed up for the email list on the Spectrum Noir website and found out that they have a monthly challenge, so I decided to enter a few cards to this month's challenge..which is EMBOSSING. Let's get to the pretties, shall we?
Am I the only one who still has a few Tilda images? Every once in a while I like to pull out one or more of my Magnolia stamps and ink them up! Here I used one of my (NEW!) favorite color combos for orange. Spetrum Noir: OR1 and TN2....trust me, it is perfect.
I'm also in love with these Heidi Swapp word dies that I just got as well. They aren't that new, but they have been a bit hard to come by until they were restocked at my Joann. In the background I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder and inked it up to create a letterpress effect.
I have a new-found love for Paper Smooches stamps and so I couldn't wait to ink up this adorable set called "Market Fresh". I used MANY of the Spectrum Noir markers on this card, but my favorite combo to come out of this card is that bottle green color. Spectrum Noir: DG2 and DG3.
I LOVE this Tim Holtz embossing folder! I ran the folder through my Grand Calibur and then inked over it with some black ink. It came out better than I could have hoped!
Thanks so much for stopping by and check out the Spectrum Noir challenge for September!
