CCWM – Trying out Spectrum Noir Aqua pens

Hi everyone, another catch up post… 😀

This week I had a surprise package THAT INCLUDED CRAFTY GOODIES! WOOHOO! Best. Surprise. Ever! 🙂 My friend and DT Sista Jessica McAfee sent me a parcel will some goodies. Not only did she send me a gorgeous stamp set from The Stamp Market (my first one from this brand!) but also a set of Aqua Markers by Spectrum Noir. As i managed to get a bunch of copic second hand a few years ago, i have never used spectrum noir alcohol markers before, and i certainly hadn’t tried this aqua collection either. I knew i wanted to test them out on my ComeCraftWithMe LIVE stream.

I also treated myself to some new stamps recently, so i also used some of these in the other projects, but i couldn’t wait to get started with the aqua markers.

This Flora Bella set from The Stamp Market is lovely. Whimsical and bold, and they were a good size for creating a background. I stamped it all over some card and then used the aqua markers to color them in. I scribbled the aqua markers onto some plastic and used a water brush/ brush to pick up the colour mixed with a little water. It kinda acts like an ink or watercolour paint in that way. You can also mix the colours really easily. There were no greens in my set, but the yellow and blue can be mixed to get lots of variations on tone. This means one set goes a long long way.

I finished the card with a I MISS YOU sentiment and also the HEY Heffy Cut from Heffy Doodle.

I was so excited about this card. It features the Rub-a-dub-dub set from Lawn Fawn. I waited for ages to get this stamp. The photo makes it look a little neon – I promise it is not like that IRL) 🙂 I used the stitched bubble background from Heffy Doodle to create a fun background and then created a floor using a border die from MFT stamps. I added a little ink along the edge of Heffy Memo tape to give my ‘bathroom’ some dimension. I’ve used the Heffy Doodle strips of ease dies to create the sentiment panel.

By this time in the evening, it was getting pretty late, but I really wanted to make another quick card with my new Chameleon stamp from Lawn Fawn. Lucky for me, I found this gorgeous rainbow chevron scrapbook paper in my stash which I knew would make a perfect background. A sentiment strip cut using the Heffy Doodle Strips of Ease, plus a quick sentiment (from MFT I think) and then I stamped the chameleon onto the same chevron paper and lined him up perfectly with the background- after all, he has activated his camouflage mode! LOL

Three cards. One live stream. One tired Heffy. 🙂 To watch the whole video on playback, check out the video below.
