My card for October is using a beautiful belles and whistle image that I've not even stamped before, shameful. (I've searched for this one on-line and can't find anywhere to buy it now, maybe I've just not searched enough) However i wanted to show how spectrum noirs could be used for other things and not just colouring images. My blog challenge for September was using the refill inks direct to make a background paper and this time i have used my pens direct to vellum to colour tint a quilled flower. This one is a small sunflower but you could use any of your choice.
I've used my favourite black card, Crafters Companion new Matt black cardstock, Spectrum Noirs and the patterned paper i picked up on one of my demo days at a local craft shop but i think i got the last pieces. However i have searched on-line and here's a place you can find them, the black background, the yellow polka dot, but I'm sure if you search more you could find single sheets.
Then I've added some black lace from my stash, leaves using leaf 2 and some black pearls. The sentiment is printed from my pc.
You can find a full list of the colours used on the Spectrum Noir Blog.
Hope you like it.
