Spectrum noir markers and a little Humphrey!!!
As you may or may not know I've recently been sent 12 packs of the spectrum noir marker pens that have just been launched by Crafters Companion. They are amazing and I can't wait to get the other 4 x 24 packs that I desparately need (even though I have a full set of promarkers Lol). Anyway, I've been so busy getting on with some DT samples that I needed to colour with the pens so I though I'd share this little cutie that I predominately coloured with the "pinks". I have used papers from the SWALK papers CD (Disc 2) and a few other bits and pieces from my stash. This was the very first thing I coloured in with the spectrum noir pens so it isn't probably up to my usual (sub) standard colouring but I think it's ok for a first attempt!
I made 3 cards in total to showcase the spectrum noir pens. A "pinks" card, a "browns" card and a step-by-step tutorial that you can view here (This may take a day or so). If you are lucky enough to have treated yourself to some of these pens then you can download a colourchart here print off and colour in.
I have been decorating all day (again), but I am pleased to say that we are almost finished getting our old house in a good position to put it on the market. We have done more decorating in the last 2 months than people usually do in 10 years. I have almost lost the will to live with all the work which isn't easy with an (almost) 8 month old that has just started crawling! We've been really lucky as all the family have really helped us out with both decorating and babysitting which has been a massive help.
I have just started back with my DT work with Crafters Companion and shall shortly be resuming DT work with Joanna Sheen and I am excited to say that I will also be starting DT work for La Pashe soon.
I have some exciting Crafters Companion sneaky peeks to share with you from tomorrow so be sure to check back then!
