Inspired by...but my card has a hidden pressie!

Hello there,

I love spending time looking around the Spectrum Noir tutorials on the website, so much inspiration and way's to improve technique...because lets face it, somedays all the inspiration goes on its holidays and usually just when you need it! lol

So, as I was looking around I found a tutorial that got me thinking about colouring clothing and making sure I have's my finished image after I had read through the fabulous hints and tips...(and keep reading, as my card has a little hidden extra!)

Here's what I used to make it:

Inspiration taken from a previous Spectrum Tutorial

So, the hidden pressie?  Well......

It's a Book Mark!  Tucked in behind the heart and ready to use!

One of my daughter's has already nabbed it for her latest read lol

And decorate the back too...I always add a little pocket for little notes, words to look up etc

Have you tried Spectrum Sparkle pens on Ribbonn and Flowers?  Just look at the results!

And Spectrum Sparkle on die-cuts!  Awesome
