Spectrum Noir Blog Hop


I have had to schedule this post so I have everything crossed it has worked.

Welcome to the very first Spectrum Noir Blog Hop!  This week our entire design team has come together to start off summer with a grand celebration of Yellow - the color of summer!  If you have landed here from Wendy's blog, you are hopping in the right direction.  If not, pop over to the Spectrum Noir Blog so you do not miss a single stop!

I have chosen this delightful Wee Stamp by Whimsey called Fairy Silver to use for my Yellow creation, once again I have gone for my favourite pastel theme, Spectrum Noir's colour range is so comprehensive it allows you to cover everything from Pastel to Brights with Brilliant results.


I found the papers in my scrap box and mounted them onto Yellow and Cream Co-Ordinations Card, there are lots of Doo Hickeys Dies used on here, 2 border Dies and the fabulous Tag, the edges of all the diecuts and the image have been distressed with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.

MY TIP FOR YOU: I didn't have any ribbon or pearls to Match so I used Spectrum Noir Pen CG2 to colour some Cream Seam Binding and Cream Flat Backed Pearls, I also coloured the Daisy Charm with the same Marker.  Why not give this a try when you are having trouble matching your embellishments.



I also decorted the inside of the card:




 and finally here is a close up of Fairy Silver




I took this picture before I had added the glitter to her wings as I wanted to be sure you saw the fabulous graduation of colour you can get with Spectrum Noirs.


I have used these Spectrum Noir colours to colour her:

Greens: CG3, CG2, CG1
Yellows: GB3, CT4, CT3, CT2, CT1
Flesh: FS9, FS4, FS1, CR3
Hair: GB4, EB1

Your Wee fairy looks beautiful. Yellow is not a colour I would normally use for anything other than accents - this looks fab so I might have to give it a go.
