SPECTember with Spectrum Noir – Cute Companions

 

I am super excited to share today’s post as we start the month with “SPECTember projects” with Spectrum Noir.   For September 3, the prompt is CUTE COMPANIONS.

 

For my project today, I am showcasing the Joyful Heart Bears stamp set by MFT Stamps, the Get Grounded stamp set by The Ink Blot Shop, with the Spectrum Noir original coloring system markers, SN TriBlend markers, along with the SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye Inks on SN Ultra Smooth Premium White card stock.

 

To begin, I stamped the cute bear holding a heart balloon on SN ultra smooth premium white card stock and colored him in using my SN original coloring system marker in MB1 and MB2.  I colored the balloon with my SN TriBlend marker in Pale Pink blend.

 

To create my scene, I stamped the clouds and stars using SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye ink in Sand Storm.  I colored the clouds with my SN original alcohol marker in IB1 and my blender pen.  The stars were colored with my SN Triblend marker in Citrus Blend.

 

I used the Get Grounded stamp set to stamp the grass with some SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye ink in Grasshopper.  I also used some blending brushes to add more color to the grass using the same dye ink.

 

To finish my design, I stamped the butterfly and colored him in using my SN Triblend marker in Green Turquoise blend.  Here’s what it looks like:

 

 

I love that Spectrum Noir markers and the Harmony Quick Dry Dye inks just perfectly work so well together.  The Harmony quick dry dye inks are alcohol proof so you can use it with the SN TriBlend, SN original coloring system markers or the new SN Illustrators.  There isn’t going to be any smudging.  Here’s a closer look at my card:

Make a Wish Upon a Star with Spectrum Noir

It’s been awhile since I actually sat down and enjoyed just coloring images.  Today’s card features a lot of my favorite Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, with my new favorite ink pads, the Spectrum Noir Harmony Quick Dry Dye in Oasis, Parakeet and Lagoon.  For my images, I am showcasing the Mama Elephant Wish Upon A Star stamp set and coordinating dies.

 

To begin, I started by stamping my images on SN Ultra Smooth Premium White card stock using my SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye ink in Rustic Brown.  I colored my images in combining my original SN coloring system markers and my love, the TriBlend markers. I used IG1, IG2, CT1, CT2, DP1 and SN TriBlend Marker in Pale Pink and True Blue blends.  I also used my blender pen to lighten up the shadows on the clouds.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

 

 

On another piece of Bristol smooth white card stock, I used a clouds stencil from my stash and my SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye ink in Oasis to create the clouds.

 

 

I used a clouds border die to partially die-cut the clouds so I can tuck one of the mini clouds in the card.  I also adhered this colored background on an A2 size card base.   I added the images and adhered them on my card front.  Here’s what it looks like:

 

 

 

To add more texture and dimension, I stamped the stars randomly all over the card using the SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye Ink in Parakeet.  This card is really simple but I love how it turned out.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment using the SN Harmony Quick Dry Dye Ink in Lagoon.  Aren’t the bunny images super adorable?   This is also perfect for a “welcome baby” card.  Here’s another look:

 

 

I hope you like my project today and got inspired.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below if you are interested.  Please visit Spectrum Noir for more information about the new Illustrators that have just recently launched in the market.  They are absolutely AMAZING!
