Spectrum Noir CAS Challenge

Hi everyone! 1 week until Christmas! YIKES!!! Right now...if you're like me...getting things done quick is high on my priority list. Soooo....this will be QUICK! A quick post to show a quick tag and a quick reminder to play the Spectrum Noir December "Clean and Simple" Challenge. All the details can be found HERE.

I never seem to have enough here's a quick idea using Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils and a Spectrum Noir Marker in the eBrush. This Santa is as cute as they come! :)

  1. Die-cut a bunch of tags from white cardstock (I used Scalloped Tags from Crafter's Companion).
  2. Stamp the image on a Post-it Note (or masking paper of your choice) and trim out image --  above the line only. This is to make a mask for airbrushing.
  3. Stamp the image and words on all tags with black ink. I used a stamp set from A Muse Studio called Santa Mail. TIP: Position all stamps on 1 stamping block. Then you can ink up and stamp ALL the images at the same time for each tag! GREAT time-saver!
  4. Color all the Santa's with colored pencils. (colors listed below)
  5. Place mask over Santa and quickly airbrush with brush nib or chisel nib of a blue Spectrum Noir Marker marker. I used IB1 with the brush nib in the eBrush System. Do this to all the tags.
  6. Add glitter accents as desired.

Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils:
  • Face - 004, 009
  • Hat and Sleeves - 025, 026, 120
  • Gloves - 120
We would love to see what CAS projects you make this month with your Spectrum Noir products. You have till the end of the month to enter. Have fun and keep it Clean and Simple!
