SWALK sympathy card and Spectrum noir tutorial!!!
I hope you are all having a good weekend so far. Mine has been pants so far as our car broke down round the corner from our house so I had to ring my dad to help the hubby push it to the house. Hopefully, it's not a big problem but we won't know till the guy comes and takes a look at it.
Anyhoo, I wanted to show you a card I made with a cute (but sad) SWALK stamp that I made as part of a step-by-step colouring tutorial with the fab new Spectrum Noir pens from Crafters Companion. The card (I think) is called a joy fold card although I'm not too sure Lol.
I used the main image on the outside of the card and used the bunch of flowers off the same stamp sheet on the middle panel. The papers are from the SWALK papers CD (disc 2). I decided on a lilac colourscheme as I'd not used it for a while. If you click here it will direct you to the Step-by-step colouring tutorial that is on the Crafters Companion website along with several others by other members of the Crafters Companion DT.
I am really gutted as I've ordered the rest of the spectrum noir pens (the 4 x 24 packs in lights, brights, darks and pastels) and they are on back order and not expected back in stock till the end of September. Patience isn't a virtue of mine but I have no choice as they are not available anywhere. I think they really underestimated just how popular these fab pens would be at Crafters Companion!!! I can't wait to get them!!!
