Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

November 28, 2013

Yellow Rose

Hi Everybody,

This image has been coloured with Spectrum Noir and I really took my time with this one.

The image is from "The Next Big Thing" by  Just Inklined and this is a disc I turn to time and time again for the lovely and varied images on it.

The colors used ...

The CD covers a multitude of subjects and it such a pity that it has been discontinued.

But if you are lucky enough to have one then take a fresh look at it all and you are sure to find something that you would enjoy coloring.

Just a thought ....

As an accredited instructor with Spectrum Noir and as a member of the design team .... I do regularly create video tutorials for the Spectrum Noir website.  I also add tutorials to Card Making Magic and I teach with The Art Studio.

But I was thinking of starting something on a more personal level and inviting people in the Blackpool area to join a color class with Spectrum Noir pens.

There would be about 6/8 places and the day and time would be decided if I get any response from this post.

So if you live in the area and would be interested in coming to a coloring class ... where we can learn and share ideas then please email me ... 

I have many digital images and stamps for you to choose ... so I would provide the images on quality card for you to color and give the tuition.

I will provide tea/ coffee and maybe a biscuit or two .... but you will need to bring your own pens.   The class could run for a couple of hours with a break in the middle.

Now I shall cross my fingers and hope that maybe someone would like to join the class ...

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Well I would LOVE to be there, but Texas, USA is a bit far away, LOL! Can you come visit us and teach a class? That would be so much more convenient for me!! :)

    And such a lovely card, Christina.... I really like the color combination you used. I bought 72 Spectrum Noir pens because of your videos tutorials.... you make it look so easy. Thanks for all your instructions and inspiration!

  2. Stunning card Christina, love that image. You have coloured it so beautifully, finished it off on a fantastic design.
    Oh! How I wish I lived near you. Colouring is the one thing I really need to get my head round.
    I have signed up for your Tutorials with The Art Studio they certainly help.
    Have a wonderful day

  7. Morning Christina,
    A beautiful card, love the roses looks like it's been printed. Pity the CD is not available anymore I for one would be interested it buying it. Great idea to run classes, pity I live in Kent.

  8. Aww Christina, ... I so wish you lived in Cardiff, I would be there like a shot! Ah well, such is my luck! lol! Love the fact that these roses are not the usual red or pink, but lovely shades of yellow! Personally I am not a big fan of yellow flowers but these really do look fabulous! Thanks for sharing the colour numbers with us! xx
