Shhh, don't tell anyone but I love my Spectrum Noir pens

Shhh, don't tell anyone but I love my Spectrum Noir pens

I am still only at the beginning of my crafting journey, but one of the first purchases I have made last year was a full set of Spectrum Noir alcohol marker pens, along with the tutorials DVDs. I have never coloured before in my life, so that was a big leap of faith for me, but Leann Chivers from Crafter's Companion made it sound so easy that I just fell in love with it and had to have them all :).

So here I am, a year or so later, having done quite a few handmade cards using the Spectrum Noir pens, I am starting to feel more confident. However, I never had the courage to actually try to colour in the "Shhh" digi stamp that included on the Crafter's Companion Spectrum Noir tutorial DVD, as it seemed to be a more "ambitious" project.

But I could procrastinate no more, as my daughters kept pestering me to make something for their room. I have more or less followed Leann's instructions, but improvised on the flowers. And of course, as I love a touch of glitter on my cards, I had to add that in too.

The "Shh" picture took several hours to complete, mainly because I printed it in the original large size, with the intention of framing it for display. I am quite pleased with the result, and in spite of few minor glitches, it will go onto the wall in the girls' room.

I can honestly say that I would have not been able to do it without my Spectrum Noir pens (and no, I don't work for Crafter's Companion :)).
