Spectrum Noir Blog Hop



Welcome to the very first Spectrum Noir Blog Hop!  This week our entire design team has come together to start off summer with a grand celebration of Yellow - the color of summer!  If you have landed here from Kristine's blog, you are hopping in the right direction.  If not, pop over to the Spectrum Noir Blog so you do not miss a single stop!



So here is my card. Talk about last minute!!! I have been on nights all week so only started my card last night. I finally finished it at about 2am but I had sooooooo much fun!!! I have coloured a gorgeous image by Saturated Canary. I printed my digi onto Neenah Card and as you can see Spectrum Noir pens work great with digital images.




I would never really have thought about using so much yellow on a card, I mean yellow boots, come on, lol ..... but I think it works really well. The pens blend so easily and I really do urge you all to have a go at making a yellow card. I am also thrilled because I found this great colour combo for hair. I think it is the quickest I have EVER coloured hair in my crafting life.

Here are the colours I used for my image .....

Skirt & Boots: CT1, CT2, CT3, CT4, GB3 (Soles: GB8, GB10)
T-shirt: BG1, BG2, FS8, Blender
Skin: FS1, FS2, FS3, FS8, TN1
Hair: GB1, GB8, GB10
Bunny: GB1, GB8


The sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC - thankyou :o)

You were correct with your hint Marcea. An absolutely gorgeous card. Love the colouring and wonderful job on the hair. I find hair so difficult at times. I dont think my neighbours would thank me for crafting at 2am cos I always have to have my music on loud and have a good sing. Looking forward to your next card.
Love Sharon. x
