More Spectember Fun

For my Day 7 card of the Spectember Day Challenge, “Favorite Color.” I used a Lawn Fawn stamp set named Winter Fox , Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen to create this sweet card. Since my favorite color is Burgundy, I also used lots of that beautiful color in the background papers and embellies. I also added a bit of texture by layering some burgundy colored Nuvo Drops onto a few of the stars.  The sentiment is also in the clear stamp set. Am entering this card into several challenges including Outlaws Saturday Paper Ala Mode- Hobbies (drinking coffee is a hobby to me. A hobby that allows me to be a nice person in the morning!)

For my Day 8 card of the Spectember Day Challenge, “Show Us Your Sparkle.” I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens and alcohol markers plus a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen to color Tammy Tutterow’s free coloring page named “What if you fly?” (You can find it HERE.) It took a little practice to control the ink flow in the Sparkle Pens, but once I mastered that task, I LOVE the results. My card contains all three of the colors, bronze, silver and black and I was surprised how much sparkle the Pens do contain. I added a bit of additional bling with a few clear gems. Because… well… you can never get enough bling!

I always like entering Double D’s photo challenge and the current one offers lots of possibilities. I created one with a tulip, one with a butterfly… and now one with an “alien.” (Actually, this cute big-eyed green guy is from a digi set at Bugaboo Stamp’s named  Mini set Monster Blocks.) I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The googly eyes and puffy heart stickers are from my crafting stash. The circle sentiment on the front is a freebie from DesertDiva. You can find it HERE.  The inside sentiment is also a freebie from DesertDiva that you can find HERE.
