Ho Ho Ho... Spectrum Noir Holiday Challenge

I have been wanting to participate in the Spectrum Noir Challenge this month and have been so busy.  I finally sat down and started playing with reds today and wow... I just love how the Spectrum Noir Reds blend so nicely on the Crafter's Companion paper!  JUST LOVE it!    I did several red images tonight!

I have colored this image several times but it has been over a year since I played with it and my hands were itching to play with it again! I just love the Karen Medler images by The Peddler's Pack.

Sorry that I didn't take step out pictures of the image, I guess I will have to get that done!  Here are the colors I used.

Reds:  CR8, CR10, DR1, DR5, DR7
Flesh: FS2, FS3, FS6, TN2 and a bit of CR5
Gray BGR1, BGR2
Blue: TB2, TB3, TB5 and I added a bit of IG2 & IG4 to add a bit of gray tint around the edges.
Letter: EB2, & blender pen.

Be sure to join the challenge for a chance to win wonder prizes!  All you have to do is make a new holiday card..... yes ANY holiday!  Check it out here

I am going to be ready to mail my cards early this year... they are half done... Whew Hew!



  1. These are wonderful... my brain just will accept that Christmas is this close.... not before Halloween anyway! LOL!
