May challenge at Spectrum Noir


It was only like last week when it started to hail and snow so much that it actually covered the ground for a few hours. And this week it's +25C and summer, flowers everywhere and I absolutely love this time of year. So how fitting that the challenge for May at Spectrum Noir is flowers. I used a pretty flower stamp that Marion Emberson designed for WOW Embossing powders. I haven't had the chance to ink it up but I had a few hours of fun coloring it up with the new AquaBlend pencils by Spectrum Noir and then shaded them with ColourBlend pencils and I might even have used the Spectrum Sparkles on top. I love using the AquaBlends on top of Sheena cardstock, it blends really good and it's easy to stamp on because it's perfectly smooth. I used a lighter ink to mimic the no line coloring style, but I left it dark enough for the details to show. 

You can join the challenge here, just remember to use some Spectrum Noir products for your creation and to have fun!

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 and coloring. 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 ;)
