Spectrum Noir Tutorial - mixing Aqua markers and sparkle pens

Edited: so super organised I haven't posted this yet!!

Now I am super organised with this card as it's Holly's birthday soon and she's not really a girly girl but absolutley loves Olaf but I couldn't put a snowman on her birthday card so I thought I would try and go with the Frozen colours....so my tutorial for Spectrum Noir too...

First of all I cut a piece of watercolour card to the required size, I have gone for 6 x 6 inch and I also cut out the numbers to use on my card again in waterfcolour card.


Next I coloured Kingfisher, Orchid, Lime and Topaz Spectrum Noir Aqua markers onto a piece of acetate, I heavily loaded my brush with water ro really dilute the colour and then just randomly added a dash of each colour onto the card.


Once the first layer of colour is dry I then repeated the step above just to make the colour a bit more vibrant.


Next I gave the card a wash of water to blend the Aqua colours together, I let it dry and then added some splashes.


Next I moved onto the numbers, using Amethyst and Aquamarine Sparkle pens, I coloured the acetate again and the using a brush loaded with some water lifted the colour from the acetate and coloured the numbers.


Again, leaving to dry before added more of the same coloured Sparkle Pens and then I gave a final coat of the Crystal Clear sparkle Pen.


Here is my finished card, it's hardto see the sparkle from the pens but  it's there...added a message and a few sequins, pearls and gems.
