This months Spectrum Noir Challenge is Backgrounds and I have to say I like the safety of colouring a pre stamped image in rather than create my own backgrounds. But........... there are lots and lots of different backgrounds that can very easily be created. on the spectrum noir blog, there are lots of ideas from simple dottie backgrounds to the more detailed backgrounds on Leanns Spectrum Noir Intermediate DVD. I've also included a detailed cloud tutorial on the website and Leann also shows one in her dvd too.
So mine is just creating a sky with a few clouds, easy peasy........... The stamp is Toadstool village 3 from the house of zandra who has some fab images just waiting to be coloured and I've coloured using the following pens and pencils
Spectrum Noir Pens IB1, IB2, IG1, Eb1, EB2, EB3, CR3, CR8, CR11, DR1, DR7, DG2, DG4, HB1
Spectrum Noir Pencils 89, 117, 96, 28,58
I've made the card base from watercolour card and embossed with the Make a wish 6x6 folder. the image is matted onto kraft card inside the card after cutting an aperture with a circle in the front of the card. The sentiment is from the verses sentimental stamp set and i then finished off with a wooden butterfly coloured with DR1.
Hope you like it and don't miss out on the chance to win a fab prize.........
