Giving Thanks!

Have you heard?  Spectrum Noir markers have been COMPLETELY redesigned and they are FABULOUS!!!!  I've been playing with them a bunch lately, which, if you have been following along, you know is amazing because I am NOT one to consider myself a 'coloring artist', but I am really enjoying these new markers and I'm finding that success isn't nearly as hard to achieve as I had originally thought!  I wanted to share this fun little Thanksgiving card that I created using the markers.

Giving Thanks Leaf Boy


ACK!!!  LOVE!!!  This was one of the first large images I colored after receiving my markers, so perfection it is not, however, I do still LOVE how it turned out.  Oh...and I kinda want those jeans, dude.  Talk about awesome fade!  HA!

I love how I was able to not only blend the similar colors, but also use complementary colors that blended so well on the leaves!  YAY!  A few sequins popped in throughout the leaves brighten it up and just make it plain 'ole fun!  I like fun.  For reals.

One thing I should probably note is that I am using Crafter's Companion smooth white cardstock to color.  It is made specifically for use with alcohol markers and it really allows for beautiful blending!  You can find links to supplies similar to those I used for this fun card, along with the markers and such below.

Have a Happy!!!
