Spectrum Noir Blog Hop


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

Here is my card for the blog hop and the theme is Yellow, the colour of summer.  So mine is a card that is going to be a tutorial on the Spectrum Noir Blog on Tuesday the 19th June.  It's a tutorial with step by step instructions and I have taken photos along the way to help you.  But the picture is very yellow I think and I have not used one yellow colour at all they are all golden brown and tans.  The image is from Sheena Douglas, its from her little little bit scenic range, 50's French Cafe.  Its the first time I have coloured it and I normally like colouring cutesy images so this was a change for me but i thoroughly enjoyed it, I think we all should try something a little bit different sometimes.  I've added the colours used below and you will have to pop back on Tuesday for the full tutorial.  It does look summery I think, I would do with a holiday in France and a cool glass of white wine in hand at a French cafe.............



We are excited to announce that our new Spectrum Noir website and blog is up and running. If you have not had a chance to check out all of the great tutorials, tips, suggestions and samples our design team has posted, today is a great day to take a peek.  Before we get to the rest of the blog hop, how about we add a bit more excitement?  Spectrum Noir is going to award one lucky winner with a full set of 72 Basic Spectrum Noir Pens!  Yes, that's right...all twelve sets of six pens each and $25.00 or £25.00 gift certificate to be used on any Spectrum Noir product at Crafter's Companion US or UK websites .


Entering to win is easy.   Leave a comment on the Spectrum Noir Blog Hop Post telling us one fun new thing (tip, trick, interesting combination of colors, etc) you learned about the Spectrum Noir markers while hopping with us this week.  A random winner will be drawn using random.org and posted on our blog at 9:00 AM GMT, Saturday, June 23, 2012 so be sure to check back with us to see if you have won!  The lucky winner will have one week to claim their prize or a second winner will be chosen.  How about a bonus chance to win?  If you add our blinkie to your blog and mention in your comment that you've done so, you will be entered into a second contest to win a $25.00 gift certificate to be used on any Spectrum Noir product at Crafter's Companion (the US or UK site).  To add the Blinkie, simply download the code from the downloads section on the Spectrum Noir Blog and place it prominently in the sidebar of your blog.
