Hi everyone! It’s Kelly here, feeling a bit panicked now that Christmas is quickly approaching. I always make a handful of cards at this time of year for those special people in my life (and when you receive one, I guess you will now know you’re ‘special’) Since I am totally obsessed with lettering and watercolors, I thought I would combine the two for my card. This is an easy no-fail design that anyone can replicate. The new Spectrum Noir Sparkle brush pens distributed by Canuck Crafts should be on your wish list. They come in gorgeous colour sets and are water-based AND have glitter! How perfect for a Christmas card! I actually used a set called “Winter Warmers” with the red, blue and green colours, plus a black Sparkle pen for the hanging strings and writing “Be Merry.” The paper that works beautifully for this technique is the Spectrum Aqua…

Creating Watercolour Effects with Spectrum Aqua markers distributing by Canuck Crafts by Christy Riopel I love this quick layout that I put together. I used Spectrum Aqua Markers and Watercolour Cardstock, Clearsnap SurfaceZ Ink, Magenta stamps and Stencils. Using the Magenta stencil draw lines inside the openings of the stencil. Spray with water and lift off the stencil. This works so well because the Spectrum Aquas are a waterbased marker. I also used the markers on the edges of my photo matte I added these beautiful Magenta flower stamps using a permanent ink like Clearsnap SurfaceZ ink so that I can spray water over the top after I have coloured them in. It’s amazing how a little water can turn these markers into works of art. Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Here is a cute little card Sue Sykes posted on her blog a while back! I love the background technique she created and of course I love that she used products from one of our Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival sponsors Sue used  Spectrum Noir Markers and stamps that are distributed by Canuck Crafts. Thank you so much to Canuck Crafts for all their support through out the years and for once again being one of our We couldn’t do it without you! MUCH LOVE!
