A Christmas Wish & Strawberry Kiss

How would you like to have a downloadable tutorial & sample image to practice your coloring skills?  Today, begins the start of free "Color-A-Longs" being posted weekly on the Spectrum Noir Website.  Here is a sneek peek at this weeks project.

How does it work?  You go to www.Spectrumnoir.com and click on downloads, then you will see the Color-a-longs.  All you have to do is click the download button next to the one you want to color and you will have your very own color tutorial with a sample image.  You will be able to color-a-long and practice your coloring skills.  *note that some of them might have a separate download for the free sample image*  Complete images are available for purchase at Crafter's Companion.

Soon there will be videos added to our color-a-long program.. and guess who will be hosting the videos?  Yep! Yours truly, a few videos are done and waiting to be uploaded, so stay tuned!  Here is a picture of the finished card made with the same image in this week's color-a-long.  

I followed the instructions in the Color-A-Long except I added a few extra steps for that extra punch!  I added IG6 under my darkest red on the sides of the pot and deep center of the flower petals.  I also added a layer of CR10 in the center of the pot and on the tips of the petals.  That little bit of CR10 really brightened my highlight.  Red Glitter paper, a few red rhinestones, embossing folder, and die cut snowflakes finish the card. 

As you know, kitties and my allergies don't do well, but this little girl is perfect.. she is cute and cuddly and does not shed!  The perfect kitty!  I really think she is adorable and very simple to color!

Colorful Hugs,


  1. Jennie, how cute!! Sorry I missed your last classes at the Stamp Addict. Wasn't feeling well with my hip, and sure wished I could have made it, looked like some good ones!! Look forward to your next trip down.

    Just finished up a card with the last batch of stamps I bought from your last floral classes. Sure enjoyed them, you were great.....

  2. Such an adorable card Jennie! These color-alongs are fabby!
