Sweet peas

Maya Isaksson Spectrum Noir WM double sweat pea

I loved this Sweet Peas stamp set by Altenew right away, it looked super easy and fun to color. I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers for these. Colors listed below.

I started by making this pink one. I wasn’t sure what to do with the background but I ended up ink blending the corners and that made it look kind of dreamy. I really like the effect. I do have a super hard time blending though. Everyone says the distress Oxides blend like butter, but not for me. I’m probably doing something wrong because I get streaks that takes forever to blend out. But I love the look so it’s worth the effort.

Since I stamped up two card fronts at the same time, in case I messed up, I made a blue card too. I actually have no idea what colors Sweet Peas come in. I have a vague memory I planted some the first summer after we got the house and they were soft pink. Would have been. If they had bloomed. I put them so close that there was a dense mass of greenery, so heavy it tipped the support I put up. And not a single blossom. Probably because I planted so many of them. I don’t have a green thumb at all.

Anyways. Here are the colors of Spectrum Noir Illustrators I used for these two cards: FS1, FS2, PV3, PP4, TB1, TB2, TB3, YG1, YG2

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 ;)
