Lili of the Valley Challenge–Roses and More Spectrum Noir practising

They have forecast rain for us down here in the South East corner of England, well I wish it would hurry up and arrive, it was unbearable in bed last night.  Again it was uncomfortable up here so I took myself and my Spectrums  into the garden yesterday and spent most of the day practising, the results of which are posted below.  Luckly I had already made my Card for the Lili of the Valley Challenge which this week is Roses.

Again I have used Spectrum Noirs to colour the image this time I went for a Bright combo, as I say the only way to get the best out any new Markers is to experiment.  The papers are both by Magnolia and I have used Lili of the Valleys Emma Plant Pot image.  The gorgeous unusual flowers are from the Ribbon Girl.  A Doo Hickey Border die wa used for the border and a Die-namics Doily die from Dies to Die for has been popped behind the image.  I think I have fulfilled the criteria for the theme this week Roses they are everywhere.

As this card is being sent to a very dear friend I have also decorated the inmside, using the same papers, roses and some frayed finger bandage

The Spectrum Noirs used  to colour Emma:

Flesh: 25, 29, 109, 139, Bag, Hat Ribbon: 57, 68, 171, 178, Leaves: 42, 175, Dog: 91, 97, Roses, Plant Pot: 17, 147, 196.

Now here are 3 images I coloured up yesterday, I am really enjoying playing with my Speccies (yes they are so dear to me they have a nickname already), I was determined to get the best from the markers rather than leaving them on my desk and just looking at them, which is what I did when I first started collecting Copics they actually sat on my desk for months and I hated them just couldn’t understand how to use them properly.

The first two images are digis from the lovely Make It Crafty collection, I choose these as they had large areas of hair, flesh and cloths  to practise on

The final image is a Sugar Nellie Adorable Image -  Melissa , and this one was chosen to see how they worked with Pencil Sketches, I am really pleased with the result

hi Jacqui, gorgeous card, and love the examples you have done with your spectrums, i have a couple of packs of pro markers and just cannot get on with them, it looks as if a 3year old has coloured with them, just cant get the blending right lol

i really like the look of the spectrum shades, are you going to do a tutorial with them??

have a great day it's cooled right down here, it's lovely lol

hugs troy xx
