You’re beautiful!

Hi all, its Wednesday, so another challenge begins over at Addicted to Stamps and More and this week’s theme is a favourite with everyone as its “Anything Goes”! So any style is welcome and I look forward to seeing all your beautiful creations

I just received my new Spectrum Noir metallic markers from Crafters Companion and I couldn’t wait to try them out! My daughter and I had a fun morning playing with them, or rather she was showing me the best way to use them as she’s a wonderful hand letterer, (and artist, and painter…), and she wrote our names with them.Metallic markers.jpgI simply love their nibs, each pen has a marker point and a brush nib, which bends like a paintbrush! The rich flow of ink that comes out from them is just beautiful! I wish I had bought more colours but I’ll certainly be placing an order for more very soon!Altenew metallic markers productsI used Altenew’s Wallpaper Art stamp and stamped my arrangement with Spectrum Noir’s rich watermark ink, on black paper. I then coloured it in with my metallic markers.  To finish, I hand wrote the sentiment using the metallic markers too!

Well, I hope you liked my card and that it will inspire you to create something for our challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More. I look forward to visiting your amazing creations! Do pop over to my fellow design team members, to see what they came up with to inspire you too!

Thanks for popping by and have a great day doing something you love!

Hugs, 0aablog-signature

  1. wow I love the dramatic look of the vibrant coloured flower against the black. Beautiful colouring and the white splashes the perfect finish-thanks for joining Ink

  4. WOW, superbe carte Gwendolyn ! J’aime beaucoup ce magnifique contraste des couleurs métallisées sur le noir de la carte. Et quelle jolie profondeur tu as réussi à donner avec ton coloriage, on dirait presque que cette fleur est brodée. Quant à la calligraphie de ta fille, elle est tout simplement incroyable, elle devrait créer des sentiments pour les fabricants ! Bonne fin de semaine (créative bien sûr !). Bises


  5. Oh my goodness what a gorgeous card – I love the rich colours. And oh no – new pens for me to look out for – your daughter’s writing is truly beautiful – who needs stamps when you can write like that ! Thanks for joining us at HSS this week. Fiona, DT
