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

Thank You Tag
Hey there Peeps. I’m just dropping in on this chilly Sunday morning to share a tag I created as a thank you gift to one of the ladies working hard behind the scenes at Crafter’s Companion. Miss Teena fills our DT allotment goodies boxes stuffed full of fabulous supplies so we’ll have everything we need to create our samples to share with you. It’s a bit like Christmas to receive these fabulous treats.
I’ve been growing my selection of stamps to create my own backgrounds. And with lot’s of practice I’m getting much better knowing what mediums play well together. And unfortunately which ones don’t lol. I’ve also used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color the flowers and trim for this tag : )
