I've been working on a card for the Holiday Cards/Projects challenge on the Spectrum Noir blog.
The prize (drawn at random from all valid entries) will be one set of twenty-four pens (winner chooses the set – Brights, Lights, Darks, or Pastels!) and any one holiday stamp of the winner’s choice (from Crafter’s Companion UK or US). How could I resist?!
Here's my Aussie Christmas card (better photo below, taken outside in the sunshine), with colouring information below:
The stamps are from Stamp-It and are called Gumnut Christmas and Koala Bauble.
The card base was embossed with a Spellbinders Embossabilities folder EL-014.
The images are stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on Bazzill Kraft card (the lighter coloured one) and coloured with my fantastic Spectrum Noir pens as follows:
Leaves DG4 and DG2
Small gumnuts GB5 and GB8
Large gumnuts and branches GB8 and GB10
Koala IG4 (shadowed by going over a second time)
Santa hat DR3 (trim is Liquid Aplique)
The green and gold/brown ribbon strips have been coloured to match with Spectrum Noir pens (DG4 and GB10). Wish my camera would recognise that - they actually look the same colour as leaves and gumnuts in real life :( I'll try taking another photo in daylight tomorrow...
