Spectrum Noir Pencils on Kraft Card Stock-Tupelo Designs LLC





Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a card for Tupelo Designs LLC.  I decided to use the Spectrum Noir Color pencils on Kraft Card stock using Your Next Stamps stamp called Perfect Chemistry.  I really love Your Next Stamp’s stamps, they carry variety of stamps for all your stamping needs.  What I love about their stamps the most, is their clever sentiments.  Today I decided to do some coloring using the Spectrum Noir’s color pencils on Kraft card stock.  Spectrum Noir carries 5 different sets of pencils, each having 24 pencils inside.  The sets come in Primary, Essentials, Nature, Marine, and Floral.  Tupelo Designs LLC carries all 5 sets.  I’m only using the Primary set today to color the light bulb from the Perfect Chemistry set.  I used the White Unicorn pigment ink to stamp the images and colored only the center light bulb.  I really like color pencils on Kraft and I really like the way this card turned out.  Something different and fun.  I hope you like this card and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks again 🙂

Coloring Hibiscus with Spectrum Noirs and Some Tips-Tupelo Designs LLC





Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a DT card for Tupelo Designs LLC using the Hibiscus stamp set from Designs by Ryn.  I’ll be using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and I’ll quickly go over some tips on using your bare rubber stamps without mounting it on Cling foam.  If you are interested in mounting your stamps on the cling foam, I’ll leave a link below where Jane shows the entire process.

These stamps Designs by Ryn are such a high quality red rubber stamps.  They are very deeply etched and detailed, so you won’t have any issues with getting a good crisp image.  I personally like to use a Rock-A-Block when I’m stamping bare rubber stamps.  That’s just my preference and you can play around with different types of block.  There’s a slight learning curve to it but once you get use to them, they are great.

I’ll be coloring most of my flowers off camera but I will share several petals and go over some things.  These flowers took over and hour to color, and I don’t think you want to watch me color for an hour.  You can go ahead and check out the video above for the whole process as well as some tips for using your bare rubber stamps.

I’m trying out couple different tools that I’ve never used before. I show it very briefly since the video was fast forwarded 4x.  One is the Blending tool that Mike, owner of Tupelo Designs LLC actually makes, and the other being the Teflon Bone Folder.  I’ll share more footage of using this tool in another video but I just gotta say, they are fantastic tools.  The blending tool is perfectly shaped so I can grab it very easily and makes blending much easier.  I have wrist problems so this tool is perfect for my hands.  The other tool that i’m fascinated by is the Teflon Bone folder.  I’ve seen others use it, and it was highly recommended by tons of people and now I know the reason why.  They give a really crisp scor and when you burnish the fold, there is no shinny residue.  It also feels good in my hands as well.  I’m super excited about these New tools for me, I’ll share more about it later on.  I hope you like this card and tips I gave was useful.  Please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll see you guys next time.

Aloha Guys!

Yesterday I posted a flower that I colored with my New Npectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.  Today, I’m sharing some more coloring using these markers.  I had several questions regarding skin tones and Hair colors.  I decide to make a Product Focus on these markers and kind of shared the differences form this Spectrum Noir vs. Copics.  I have a Full video on this Product Focus on my Blog.  Also, Tupelo Designs LLC is having a 10% off on all the Spectrum Markers as well as the Brand New Spectrum Noir Aquas.  So this is the perfect time to stock up on some markers.  These markers are Very reasonably priced and I really like these markers.  Thank you so much for visiting and please subscribe for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks so much, Mahalo
