I'm so excited....I'm learning.......

Hey Everyone....Happy Friday to you!!! I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful Good Friday....and are safe in this weather we've had over the past couple of days......So...I had the day off...and I took advantage of it.....I started collecting the Spectrum Noir markers last year.......and had really not taken time to learn how to use them properly.......and I have been wanting to.....so that's what I've done over the last several days......Youtube has been my friend...and I've watched lots of awesome videos from Spectrum Noir and a few others trying to soak in all the knowledge I can.......

So last night I started trying to apply some of the things I learned.....boy does it take practice!!! LOL  BUT I did actually complete my first piece that I'm rather proud of....I KNOW I still have ALOT of practicing to do.......but at least I feel like I can create something that I would be proud to send out.......wanna see?????


Not to bad huh???......I know it's not perfect.....but I sure am thrilled with it......the stamp I used was from Stampendous.....it has the base flower and the single flowerlets and the leaves.....I think it's a beautiful set........





To color the flowers I used Spectrum Noir colors LV1, LV3, DG2, DG4 ......I know they recommend using at least 3 colors.....but for me using 2 on the flowers and 2 on the leaves worked for me this time.......will eventually get to using 3 or more colors....but we have to start somewhere right????   
That's what I'm telling myself anyway!! LOL  I went around the edges with Distress Ink Gathered Twigs.........and used some chunky glass glitter on the centers of the flowers.......

The background paper of the card I used a sheet from "At the Vineyard" paper pack from Paper House.......distressed the edges with Gathered Twigs......added some ribbon and pearls......and called it complete.......  Would love to hear what you think....No where near perfect I know...but not a bad start at least???  

Ok....That does it for me now....off to play some more.....I want to THANK YOU so much for stopping by to visit with me!!!  I'm thrilled when I hear from you.....I do hope you will come by again......I wish you all a very blessed and Happy Easter......Until next time.....
