Spectrum Noir September Challenge

Hi everyone.

There's a new challenge over on the Spectrum Noir Facebook Page, this months challenge is "embossing"...

You can also pop over to the Spectrum Noir blog to find out loads of tips and techniques on using all your Spectrum Noir products.

I have used MFT Scribbled roses stamp set, MFT Scribbled roses dies and MFT scribbled roses overlays.

I first cut a square of watercolour card to size and gave it a quick wash of water.  I then randomly stamped the roses using versamark ink and then embossed using white embossing powder. I then coloured the roses using Spectrum Aqua markers, I made the colour quite bold to start with and then when it was almost dry I loaded a large brush with water and went over the stamped image...this made it a bit softer and made the colours blend into each other.  I thought it looked a bit plain so I decided to stitch around the edge of the card in orange. I die cut the roses and leaves and then using my ebrush sprayed them with Spectrum Noir markers.  I layered the white overlay on top and then positioned onto the card.  I added some pearls and gems to finish.

Hope you likey!

Spectrum Noir pens used:
CG2, DG2, OR1, OR2, EB1
