October challenge at Spectrum Noir

Spectrum noir maya isaksson october challenge watermarked

New month means new challenge at Spectrum Noir and a chance to win some fab prices. I love the challenges because they are such great inspiration. This month it's a color theme: Grey and/or orange. I have a lot of inspiration lately and made not one project but three. I started with this orange one using Aqua Tints to make a background, I used the orange from the Bright and Beautiful set and some of the yellow to make a gradient. Then I diecut the whole thing using this fantastic die by Winnie & Walter, and made sure not to loose any pieces. I puzzled it all together in a white frame and colored the flowers and the leaves with the Marigold Spectrum Aqua to match.

Then I made this one and it took me hours. I actually hand painted all of the little pieces by painting one edge of the piece with the Charcoal Spectrum Aqua marker and then adding water with a spritzer to make it blend a bit. Then I puzzled it into a frame covered in Neutral Ultra Shimmer embossing powder by WOW. Since I had no way of keeping track of what piece went where it took me a good while to put it all together but it turned out really cool!

 I painted these butterflies and background using some Aqua Tints in Black and orange and then Covered the butterflies with gold and silver Aqua Tints to make them shimmer a lot. The butterflies are by Lawn Fawn.

So there you go, one grey, one orange and one grey and orange project. I hope you get as inspired as me and have a go at the challenge. You can find all the details on how to take part here, just remember to use some Spectrum Noir products on your project. Good luck!

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 ;)
