Orange Dragonfly Card


Hey there Peeps! Dropping in to share a project that was really inspired by how I could use my Fabulous Spectrum Noir Markers to alter and customize embellishments and trim. I colored on pretty much everything I could get my hands on and the results were amazing.

Orange Dragonfly Card 1

I used a nice variety of stamps from Crafter’s Companion to create a great background and focal images then had a good ol time coloring my embellishments to create a mixed media inspired card.

Orange Dragonfly Card 2

These paper flowers and ribbon trims were tinted with the markers. I also added some inking and glitter to the edges of the largest anchor flower to give it a little extra oomph since it’s the focal flower.

Orange Dragonfly Card 3

The pearly accents took the marker really well which surprised me because I was expecting it to smudge off….but it didn’t yay!!

Orange Dragonfly Card 4

The flowers for this small arrangement were actually white poinsettia Christmas stem flowers….they colored just fine….but the marker did soak through so if you try this…please work over layers of paper towel to absorb the excess.

Orange Dragonfly Card 5

I’m quite pleased  with the outcome of this experiment…I’ll definitely consider altering my embellishments from now to customize them for my projects!

On Your Special Day Card


Hey there Peeps! Just dropping in for a quick post to share a very bright and graphically patterned card with hand colored flowers and embossing.

On Your Special Day HSN Ginny Nemchak Crafter's Companion Watermark

For a graphic card…a simple bow and length of ribbon wrapped around is just the ticket. I chose the Shell Print On Coral Ribbon  from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I think it matches the flowers to perfection!
