Coloring with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers

Hello my crafty peeps!  I hope everyone’s doing well.  I am back today to inspire you to do some coloring using your Spectrum Noir Artist Illustrator Markers.   Coloring images for me is very therapeutic and having the right markers and card stock makes it more fun! 

 

For my project today, I am showcasing the SN Artist Markers and SN Harmony Water Reactive Inks.  The stamp and die set that I am featuring today is called Tulla and Norbert Stamp and die set collection by Photo Play Paper.

 

Begin by stamping images on Spectrum Noir Premium Ultra Smooth card stock using SN Alcohol Proof Dye Ink in Black.  Color images using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers and die-cut using the coordinating dies.   

 

Here are the colors I used for the Gnome sitting on top of the mushroom:

BeardBG1, BG2 and Blender

Hat and ClothesBT3, BT4, BT5 and GB1, GB3 and GB5

MushroomOR1, OR2, OR3 and BG5, BG6, BG7 and Blender

BeeCT2, CT3, GY3 and WingsIB1 and Blender

 

 

Die-cut an A2 size piece of Bristol Smooth white card stock and ink-blend this panel using SN Water Reactive inks in Fuchsia and Honey Pot.

 

 

Die-cut the rest of the elements needed to create the card.   Adhere the die-cut panel on the ink-blended background with foam adhesive.  Adhere the main focal image in the middle with liquid glue.

 

Stamp the sentiment using Spectrum Noir Finesse ink in Black. 

 

 

Finish the design by adding some crystal jewels.  Add “stickles” to the bee’s wings and glossy accents to the Gnome’s nose.

 

 

I really LOVE how this card turned out.  Here’s another look:

 

 

I hope you got inspired today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by and happy coloring!

Coffee Monster Card with Spectrum Noir TriBlend Markers

Hello my crafty peeps!  I am sharing yet another one-layer card with you today showcasing my new favorite alcohol markers, the Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers.  TriBlend marker has a unique 3-in-1 design. It makes it easier to carry around while you’re on the go!  It houses three ink chambers, each delivering separate color through a fine bullet nib.  Inside every TriBlend marker there’s a perfect gradation of three colors, numbered from light to dark, resulting in smooth, controllable blend.

How I made the card:

  • stamp the image on smooth white card stock.

  • color the images in with the TriBlend Markers.  I used the Ice Blue, Coral, Orange, Light Yellow and Ice Grey Blends.

  • use green ink to stamp and color the grass.  use the blending brush to add more colors to the grass.
  • use the clouds stencil, blending brush and some light blue ink to add some “clouds”.   Since the color of the monster is already blue, I didn’t really have to mask the image.  However, I carefully tilted the clouds stencil to avoid smudging the image.

  • Once the coloring is done, I added this colored piece to an A2 size card base.
  • To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment using some black ink.  I also used my white gel pen to add a little shine to the coffee cup.
