I have been really getting the hang of my new Spectrum Noir markers and I have wanted to make a card for a male friend who lives across the country. He loves robots so I knew that Lawn Fawn’s Beep Boop set for a thank you card.
It’s been absolutely gorgeous in Vancouver this winter, temperatures hovering around 10 degrees since January while the rest of east coast has been getting tortured with insane amounts of snow and crazy cold temperatures!
That is what inspired me to make this card from Lawn Fawn, using their Hello Sunshine stamps & coordinating dies. I have been coloring with my Spectrum Noir markers and I have been really starting to get the hang of it. While I still have tons to learn, I was happy with the way these little tweety birds turned out so I knew I had to use them on a card right away!

Once I got started coloring with my new markers I had to try every color I had! This card is made I made with the Blended Bloom image I colored using the Blendabilities markers in the Calypso Coral. I have said it before, but I love how these markers come in sets of 3, taking the guess work out of finding the right colors to make a proper gradient blend. One of hte other really cool benefits of these alcohol markers is that you can color on jsut about anything and the color does not come off! For this project, I used regular clear rhinestones and colored them with the lightest pumpkin pie blendability marker giving them that nice gold tint.
The top background is stamped in Gold metallic ink using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set – this is one of my go to stamp sets because it is so flexible and makes great backgrounds.
