Tutorial: Gina K & Spectrum Noir Tutorial

Hi Friends!  Up for a quick and easy tutorial for Gina K Designs & Spectrum Noir?   Here's an easy way to put some POP on a card with just TWO MARKERS!  I used the new Stamp TV Kit called Flowers & Frames along with the TB1 and TB3 Spectrum Noir Markers.

NOTE: This wildly popular kit is currently out of stock, but don't worry, it will be available very soon!

Step 1: Stamp both sizes of five-petal flowers with white pigment ink and heat emboss them with either clear or white embossing powder.  Trim them with the coordinating dies in the kit.

Step 2: On the small flower, color each petal with the Spectrum Noir Marker TB1.

Step 2: Add accents to each petal with the TB3 Spectrum Noir Marker.
Step 3: Using the TB1 Marker, go over the entire petal again to blend the colors.

Step 4: Repeat the same steps on the larger flower.  This time I colored each petal separately since the flower is slightly larger because I wanted to make sure the ink stayed wet to make blending easier.

 Step 5: To change the color of the background on this gorgeous paper from the Stamp TV Kit, I used the chisel tip on the TB1 Marker to transform it from white to blue so it would match the Powder Blue cardstock that comes with the kit.

Here's a close up of my flowers and patterned paper transformation.

Thanks for stopping by today!
