SIGN UP FOR MY CARD SWAP HERE!
Here's a birthday card that I made for a sweet friend that I met through blogland (Colleen) and it's her birthday coming up soon. So I decided to make her a card and I know she loves the colors of purple. I paper piece the image (Ayako) on the umbrella and her kimono and all that was left to color was her head and I used Spectrum Noir on her face and copics on her hair... Everyone has their own preference but I really like how the Spectrum Noir blends out evenly especially on the face of the images. I bought 3 sets each set comes with 6 different shades the one for the faces is called ( Pale Hues) and the other two are reds and yellows.. What is so nice about Spectrum Noir the inks are already coordinated in the set to match and blend verses copics you have to buy tons of different shades to get the right shade you want to make it look nice.. Don't get me wrong I love copics but experimenting with Spectrum Noir to me they are just as great and yet way way cheaper. And I've been seeing them being re-introduced back into lot of the blog sites.
Anywho here is the card I made:
Oops on the glare on both photos.
