Spectacular First Ever Spectrum Noir Blog Hop

This Post will Stay at the Top Till 
the 23rd of June  please scroll down for newer post 
thank you 


Welcome to the very first Spectrum Noir Blog Hop!  
This week our entire design team has come together to start off summer with a grand celebration 
of Yellow - 
the color of summer! 

If you have landed here from
you are hopping in the right direction.  If not, pop over to the Spectrum Noir Blog so you do not miss a single stop!

hello everyone
 Linda here I'm so happy you have arrived at my blog this is so exciting
Here is my card  for this special occasion


in this picture you get a better idea of the dimension.

 i have used Strawberry Kisses Stamp called Party Animal 
Core-dination card  gold Mirri  Centura Pearl card  satin ribbon  memento ink 3D gel and all purpose glue
 and my Spectrum Noir pens of coarse.
all from 
a backing paper from nitwits and flowers from wild orchid.

i decided to do some decoupage  with my stamped image 
you get a fabulous result and such dimension to your  finished topper 
there are 6 layers to the shoe topper 
my advice would be
 try doing Decoupage with your rubber stamps   
you are never restricted when you have a stamp in your crafting collection.

i have added a list of the Spectrum noir Colours used 
you might like to try it for yourself
GG1-GG2- EB1- EB2- FS8- CR3- CT1- CT2- CT3- GB4- GB5- GB6
 i do hope you are enjoying your Spectrum noir Pens

Cathy Clouston said...

Lovely card! I've not really thought about decoupage much, I've really only seen those sets that are already printed and pre-cut for you. I like to make my own images/embellishments so I've never been inspired by those sets, but it never once occurred to me to decoupage my own stamped image! What a great idea!!! :)
