Spectrum Noir Markers

A few weeks ago, I  tried a set of Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I wasn't sure what to expect because they were very inexpensive compared to my Copic markers.  I loved working with their bullet tip.  So, I decided to take the plunge & invest in the entire set.  I have been getting the six color sets at JoAnn's with my 50% off coupons for $8 each.  Then I took advantage of some on-line holiday sales to get the four sets of the 24 colors.  I got each set for $32 each.  I just need to go into Orlando again to get the warm & cool grey's to finish off my collection.  I have showed some of my results on my you tube channel.  I plan to show more with them now that I have more markers.   Here are a few of the cards I made.

I used the Autumn Fairy Digi from The Greeting Farm on Cryogen white paper.  The image was colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I used several punches from Martha Stewart & Stampin' Up.

Here is a close up photo of the fairy.

This is a tri-fold card that I made for Joey for Valentines Day.  It is another Greeting Farm Digi printed on the Cryogen white paper.  I used the Martha Stewart Valentine's Day paper on this one.  Once again, I used my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to color this image.

here is a close up of the image.  The paper has flecks of mica in it & it looks like white dots in this photo.

Thanks for checking out my post.  JIL
