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.
