For my card today, I used Melanie's new set called Triple Play Frame for the frame, the flowers and the sentiment. 


I decided that for this card, I was going to focus on the 3 framed circles from the large frame stamp and trim the rest of the frame away.


I used Spectrum Noir IB2, to color the outside of the frame.


Next, I used DR3 to color the rings of the circles,


and BT3 to fill in the open spots between the circles.

The nice thing about Spectrum Noir markers, is that you can make anything match your projects.  I wanted matching ribbon, so I colored some of the white sheer ribbon with my IB2 marker.

I also wanted my rhinestones to match, so I colored the clear gems with my DR3 Spectrum Noir marker.


Here are the 3 Spectrum Noir markers I used for my project today.

I am anxious to work through your coloring tutorials (if I can find a way to make the rest of life slow down just a bit). I understand the basics of color theory, but making decisions outside of my "comfort zone" is hard because I am afraid to waste anything.
