Up first today, I HAD to do some coloring with my brand spanking new Spectrum Noir Markers!, and I can honestly say I am just THRILLED how these color! Brief story...I started buying the 'OTHER' markers that shall not be named and when the price did such a jump, I just could not justify spending THAT much for one marker! Sooo, I quit buying them and waited patiently until some nice soul came out with some cheaper but still did as good...these are them. I am serious! Here is my card for today using the markers:


I colored that big ole yummy flower from the new kit, couldnt resist! I, by far, am no expert at coloring with markers, but I so love how this turned out! I used the following Markers:

So if you have been searching for some wonderful awesome markers, at a MUCH better price...these are them! And we are so lucky to have Gina K Designs carrying them! :D

Next I have a card where I played around with some canvas:


I also colored that big ole flower again using the markers...I didnt do much shading on this, because on canvas, markers of any kind will bleed and I didnt want that. But this overall effect looks good to me! And its hubby's favorite! :D

Ok, ready for more awesome eye candy? Just follow the links below:


Thanks sooo much for hanging with me during my lack of ...oh laziness! LOL! I have so many more cards to share with you with this kit and will be uploading them as the week goes by! so come on back for a visit! Ill keep the door open for ya! :D

Loved the stacked flower on card 1. Never had much luck with SN markers and they dried out so fast. My "other" brand have never dried out on me.

Cat, these cards are lovely especially the 3D colored flower - great color combo

Hi Cat! I am thrilled Gina is carrying the Spectrum Noir markers, and will be doing tutorials using them! I recently got a set at a stamping convention. I really like the markers and the price.

I need to start playing around with different textiles on my cards. Thanks for the inspiration!
