Spectrum Noir Colorista Blog Hop

Welcome everyone! We are soooo excited about the upcoming world launch of the NEW Spectrum Noir Colorista range of adult coloring products. Tuesday, August 30th is the day to mark your calendar. Sara Davies will be on HSN introducing this new range of adult coloring products to the world!

To celebrate, we're having a week long Spectrum Noir Colorista Launch Blog Hop! Our design team members have been coloring and creating with all the new products. Hopefully, you've seen some. We've been spreading the word all over our social media channels. The sharing continues as we countdown to the world launch on HSN! So grab a cuppa and join in on this fantastic blog hop full colorful inspiration.

The Blog Hop starts at: Spectrum Noir
You should have arrived at my blog from: Nicole Bretherick
You're next stop on the hop: Tracy Freeman


I colored a card from one of the new 6" X 4" Marker Card Making Kits. These kits are a MUST HAVE! I colored the entire card in one afternoon, but you don't have to do that. Take as long as you want to color. Relax and have fun! The card kits come complete with envelopes AND inserts for each card! HAPPY DANCE!!! Doesn't get any better than that...does it?!

I colored with both Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils and Colorista Markers. First, I colored the background with pencils. Then I colored the images with the markers. On all the flowers, I added more shading with colored pencils over the marker. So you can see that these cards color beautifully with not only markers, but with colored pencils as well. As you can see, they are stunning when finished!


What I love most about this card is the pre-glittered areas. This is colorable glitter! I'm addicted to these! Wait till you see all the other pads that have glitter and foil on them. Sara will demo live on HSN how easy they are to color -- AND how magical they are :)

I snapped a few pics with my phone along my way of coloring. This gives you a bit more ideas of what they look like inside and out.


Cool stuff huh? By the way...the inserts for the cards don't have all the same sentiment. You get a nice variety. I picked this one because... "The Best is Yet to Come!" on HSN August 30th!!

I saw this bird earlier on the Facebook page. My mouth dropped. This is stunning, amazing, vibrant and lovely. My children and I love nature and my children are bird watchets. Would love to have this image for the classrooms students as well. The children make all sorts of arts and crafts to sale for all types of animal charity's. Back to this gorgeous work of art I love it

Ronda Jenkins said...

I would not have thought about using pencils for the background and markers for other areas! Very cool idea. It give such a great contrast!

stormin said...

Hello! I am interested in in a stamp set that was available a few years ago, and I can't seem to find it. I am hoping that someone here can help. I'm looking for the "Fangs or Fur" set. I knowt his isn't relevant to this topic, but I wasn't sure how to contact anyone privately. I would be interested in either a new or used set.

Betsy said...

I think I like the bird best of all the images so far. Great colors you used
