Three Seasons

This card featuring a sweet image from All Dressed Up named “See-Saw” is my entry into the Spectrum Noir month-long event named “Spectember.” Day 29’s challenge is Crazy for Bright Colors. I used several of my bright Spectrum Noir Coloring System alcohol markers and highlighted the image with a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The inside sentiment “You Make Me Happy” is a freebie from HERE. Am entering this card into several other challenges including The Butterfly Challenge (Color: Mint Butterfly and Theme: Markers)

I love the details in Power Poppy images and had fun with this challenge that required using an image colored in Sepia tones. I selected a Power Poppy digi named Chickadee in Barberry, printed in off in sepia, colored it with Spectrum Noir Coloring System alcohol markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The sentiments on the front and inside are both from the digi set. Added a bit of bling by mixing some clear glitter with polar white Flower Soft to create the sparkly, fluffy snow on the branches. (I took a photo in different lighting to show the bling.) Am entering the card into a few other challenges including Outlawz Tuesday Challenge (TicTacToe: Bling, Sentiment, and Stamp- digi in sepia.)

My final card for this posting featured a sweet digi from Little Scraps of Heaven named “Peeking Fox.” I printed the digi on kraft paper, then colored it with Spectrum Noir Coloring System alcohol markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The background is an upcycled calendar page. The front sentiment “Welcome Fall” is a freebie from HERE. And the inside sentiment is from a We Are 3 Digital Sentiment set named "Autumn Sentiments."
