I had the absolute pleasure of being able to play with these pens :) and I am in love, the sparkle is amazing - the camera quite often does not pick it up but boy oh boy I have been using the Crystal Clear in place of proper glitter for weeks now on images and it is brilliant! The Crystal Clear will deffo be my most used over diecuts too :)
I had such fun using these as watercolours too - I have a tutorial over on the Spectrum Noir Blog showing you how to do this card
The Spectrum Sparkle colours I used were - Ameythyst, Aquamarine, Inspired violet, emerald, soft jade, blue topaz
There are also NEW stamps launching which I have used on some of my cards I am sharing today :)
For this card I used the Butterflies and sentiment - I coloured them with the sparkle pens and added a little water to them so they merged. The background I used one of Saras's Butterfly range folders and cut the middle away - I used some black embossed card behind it, I wet it all and dropped colour from my sparkle pens into it - I did not put my nib directly into water I scribbled a bit on acetate and used a wet paintbrush to pick the colour up. The colours I used on this were - Pink Garnet, Holly Leaf, Emerald Green, Aquamarine, Amethyst
This is another using one of the cute new stamps - I cut him out and mounted him using 3d glue gel. The colours I used on this were - Smoked Quartz, Rose Quartz, Harvest moon, Moonlight, Pink Champagne
This is a slightly different style card for me - I created a background with the pens and added tons of water to it - I then used kitchen paper to blot the excess away and then I splatted water at it - the dies are the Bebunni Butterflies and the Kimono Blossom branch die - the best bit is it sparkles lol. The colours I used on this were - Ameythst, Starry Sky, Moonlight, Holly Leaf
I can't wait to see these pens in use all over your makes!
Thanks for popping by
