Spectrum Noir ...

Hi Everybody,

Time to get the  Spectrum Noirs  out again  to play and this beautiful card would  suit all your girly friends  and would be ideal for any occasion.   Just add the appropriate sentiment.

Saturated Canary Image
Colors used ...
Skin FS2 FS3 TN2 CR2
Hair GB1 GB8 TN2
Dress PL2 PL3 BP4

The background is distress inks in Victorian Velvet, Broken China and Dusty Concord around the edge.

The white leaves and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and they and the bodice have been sparkled with  fine glitter from  Glitter Magic

The pearl flourish is from Want2Scrap

The pink ribbon is from my "Stash" and it turned out to be  a very pretty card.  I have triple mounted the image onto turquoise, pink and white glitter card before adding it to the white base card .. and that is created in the hinged card style

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  11. Fabulous colouring Christina, she looks stunning. The pretty embellies finish it off beautifully. Pat x

  12. Your coloring is perfect! Mine needs some more practice, but it is fun trying. I am still learning how to combine the colors to achieve the proper shading. For instance, I thought that you used all pinks, but it turns out it was 2 shades of purple and one pink! Thank you for all the tips. BethAnn M.
