September challenge at Spectrum Noir

SN september challenge Maya watermarked

Every month there's a new fun challenge at Spectrum Noir with a chance to win some lovely prizes. This month the theme is embossing, dry or heat. Heh, see how lucky I am because I do love embossing so this was easy peasy and so much fun! I used a digi stamp from Make it Crafty that is so pretty! Cherry Blossom is the name and I colored it using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, shading with one of the Spectrum Noir pencils. I did an embossing resist on the background, stamping the hearts with silver pearl embossing by WOW and then I used Aqua Tints in turquoise and gold to create a gradient. I'm really happy with the card, it turned out very pretty and I had so much fun making it!

Here's a list of the supplies used to make the card:

Stamps: Cherry Blossom by Make it Crafty, Live your dream by Studio Calico and My Precious by Winnie & Walter
Embossing powders: Silver Pearl and Rich Pake Gold by WOW!

Markers used:
Blossoms: PP1, PP3, LY 3 and sahding with blendable pencisl 032 (Floral set)
Branches: GB8, GB 10
Leaves: CG1, CG2
Middles of the flowers: Apectrum Aqua – Rose Pink
Background: Aqua Tints 06 and 70

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
