Colouring Lawn Fawn using Spectrum Noir Markers

Birthday Cards, Cards

Hello my crafty friends. Welcome to another Colour Me! post. This week the challenge is to create a project using four colours: turquoise, salmon, green, and mustard.


For my project, I recreated a card that I made for my Dad’s birthday last week. I wanted to showcase a unique way to use your Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to create an almost watercoloured look. As usual, I let me camera roll as I created the card so you can watch the how-to video below, or on my YouTube channel.

I mentioned in a blog post last week that I have been obsessed with using stitched oval frames on my cards recently. For me, they are just a classic window into a story. I create my frames using my Silhouette portrait machine. If you don’t know how to add the stitched detail in Silhouette Studio, I have a YouTube tutorial that you can watch here to learn how.


Don’t forget to visit out other designers for even more inspiration on using this unique colour combo–



That’s it for today. Thanks so much for dropping by! Until next time,

  1. Hi Julia, totally agree that the stitched oval is really pretty! I love all these window cards as it makes it different from the usual commercial cards. 🙂

  2. Love this sweet card, Julia! You’re right, the oval window looks so classy, I need to rethink using it. Your colouring looks great, don’t believe it’s done with markers 🙂
    Thank you for sharing video, so inspiring and easy, in your hand.
