Spectrum Collection

I have recently purchased the new Spectrum Aqua marker pens to add to my existing collection of Noirs and pencils and decided to try them out alongside the other two sets.

I used a poinsettia Penny Black stamp and greeting from the Wonder Collection. I coloured one on watercolour card with the Aqua Markers and two with the Spectrum Noirs (one on white Neena and one on Neena Desert storm) and two more using the Spectrum Pencils (again one on each of the cards).

I found them all great to use. The technique DVD's and demonstrations I have seen on Create and Craft helped to use them, which is good as you need to use different techniques for each medium.

Unfortunately the photos don't do the finished flowers justice. I think I need to invest in one of those photo booths.

I finished the cards with some flourishes die cut using the Marianne's flourish dies and Spellbinders Camelia leaf.

Also just to let you know I have put some craft kits and stamps I haven't used on eBay if anyone is interested. Ebay items.
