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.

  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.
