Spectrum Noir Blog Challenege

Hi Everyone

This months Spectrum Noir Blog challenge runs from 15th November until 14th December midnight GMT, so you still have a chance of entering and winning, so don't miss out.

The theme is Animals and for my card i have used an everyday in mulberry wood stamps, Smile Everyday with my Spectrum Noir  pens.  I coloured this at the NEC a few weeks ago and Leann die cut it with the Magic Mirror die and i just love it.

A lot of people ask how should you start to make a card?  do you colour your image first then try to find papers to go with it or should you choose your paper and the colour the image to match.  I do both depending on how i am feeling or the circumstances.  So when i was colouring at the NEC i never had my crafty stash of papers with me so just chose colours i liked at the time.  Then i hunted for papers to match when i got back..  So both ways work i think.  the background papers are from K&Co out of my crafty stash and i have used kraft card for my base.  The tag is from the scalloped tag die set and then i have just added some ribbon tied in a triple bow using my ultimate pro, a brad and some pearls   The edge of the magic mirror die is distressed with vintage photo distress ink.


Hope you like it.
