I can't tell you how happy I am with my new Spectrum Noir Alcohol marking pens...the colors are rich and vibrant and they have double points ( fine and broad ) for extra ease in coloring. I have been playing with mine over the last few days and here are a few of the results.
I got a Loralie Shop-a-holic stamp and made her up with some extra bling, including using Glossy Accents on the shoes and purse to mimic a "patent leather" look . I also layered the accessories with foam tape for dimension. This one reminded me of my Mother-In-Law so I did it up just for her !
The other one is a Magnolia "NURSE TILDA" stamp - made up for National Nurse's Week ( May 5-12 ) for 3 friends who are nurses ( I am also)... Inside it says : "What did YOU want to be when you grew up ? " Happy Nurses Week !! My friends are a blonde, a brunette, and a red-head ... so I made 3 Tildas with 3 hair colors and varied the cards a bit for each one. I used Glossy accents on the Hypodermic syringe and the medicine bottle to look like glass...and found some cute brads of a stethoscope and a nurse's cap.
I hope you like them and will give the Spectrum Noir pens a look-see on ETSY. I have some very low special pricing going on and FREE storage cases for them too ! They are less than half the price of Copic markers !
