Love & Thanks

Hi folks, today I am sharing my tutorial for Spectrum Noir.
First I coloured a piece of watercoloured card using Marine, Bud Green and Kingfisher Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers.


I laid background aside to let it dry and stamped and white embossed the trees.


Next I coloured some sections of the trees randomly using Moss Green and Cobalt Spectrum Aqua Marker.  I then loaded my brush with water and brushed over each of images.


I gradually added more colour until I got the required shade and so it would stand out against the background.


Next I cut out each of the images, being extra careful not to cut off any of the white embossing.


I laid the trees aside and moved back to the background, now that the background has dried I added some splashes of water, the water reactivates the color.


Next i added some splodges.


And then I thought the background would look extra cool with some additional splodges so I white embossed a few more splodges.


I then added sticky fixers and layered the trees onto the card, added some pearls, gems and sequins and of course the sentiment.
