Spectrum Noir ...

Hi Everybody,

So here we are holiday over ... and now time to get back to work sharing with you the things that I can on my two favorite subjects of Spectrum Noir and Spellbinders. And here is the first card made since I got home and this is featuring Spectrum Noir.

And so that you can colour yours the same I am adding a list of the pens used...

Hair        EB1   EB2   EB7
Skin        FS2   FS3   FS6
Dress      LV1  LV2   LV3 IG2
Mouse     PP1    IG2  IG4
Pumpkin  OR1  TN4  TN6
Stalk        DG1 DG2

This beautiful girl is a digital image from Saturated Canary  and  is called Cinders.
It is the first of many projects I have lined up using these pens and I was so excited to be made a member of their design team that once it became official on the 16th July I couldn't wait to share it with you all..

I have added in the Blinkie on the right hand side of the  page and am proud to display it .... but it isn't just good luck .... I have done a lot of hard work to make this happen.  And I intend to do even more to bring you the best ideas and classes that I can.

Card Making Magic has lots of   Spectrum Noir tutorials   that can give you hints and tips on the pens ... or you may like to join my  Color Style with Spectrum Noir  class with  The Art Studio 

For future reference I will add in the list of colours used on all the Spectrum Noir projects so that you can get the same look and there will be new tutorials added to the Spectrum Noir Blog  .... not just from me,  but from many talented instructors who are waiting to share their skills with you.

I will still  be adding in Spellbinders cards and listing the dies used for all of you who are looking to build your collections

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  7. This is so beautiful Christina and thank you for sharing which colours you used but somehow I think I'll need to practice a whole lot more before I get the same look! LOL xXx

  8. Fabulous fabulous card Christina - have you any tips on colouring larger areas with Spectrum Noir darker colours - I did a lovely image the other day, but ended up ruining the dress cause it was such a big area. I'm Ok with the lighter colours but was using the reds. Thanks, have a great week.
