Can you believe I made a card and had no one in mind! I just bought these markers and I had to try them out and instead of trying to figure out who I could make a card for using them I just decided to make a card and have it on hand, that is just so weird for me, I know there are a lot of cardmakers that have a stash of cards on hand but I usually don't have time to make extra's it's all I can do to keep up with birthdays and anything that happens to pop up in between that needs a card.
These are the new Spectrum Noir Metallic Markers. Although they can be used on white paper I just think they pop the best on darker colors and especially black. I brought out an embossing folder with a bit of a scene so I could use multiple markers and started coloring all the embossed areas. I really love how it turned out and they have like a brush end and a smaller nib on the other side to get into even tighter spaces.
Since I wanted to keep with the metallic theme I cut the sentiment tag base out of metallic papers and I colored my white brad with the marker I used on the flowers so they would match the card.
Next I would like to see how they color on a stamped image.
Cuttlebug - Stylized Flower embossing folder
Spectrum Noir - Metallic markers
Spellbinders - Back to Basics Tag die
Impression Obsession - Sentiments II stamp set
DCWV - Metallic papers (tag)
Brads - colored w/same markers
The following pictures are from the same park as my last post just another trail in the park. This one was a bit harder for me to navigate. I just went back to my foot doctor last week and had X-Rays of my foot and he told me that my foot has gotten worse and that he would refer me to a surgeon that would have to break, reset the bones in my feet and I wouldn't be able to put any weight on my foot at all for quite some time and he said he knows how much I like to be outside and walk and such so he suggested that I have the surgery during the winter months. I told him I was going to wait and see if the new inserts he wants to try will help any, not ready to go through all of that right now. So all that being said I understand more why now it is so hard for me to navigate on uneven surfaces.
I loved the textures and colors in the rocks on this trail and they were right next to the trail so you could get some great pics of them, and lets just say I took plenty of pictures of them, I could have some real cool backgrounds with them, LOL!
There were two falls on this trail but this second one is harder to see it is in the middle of this picture.
Do you see the rocks in the middle of the stream there, that is what I had to cross over to continue on the trail, that was the best place to cross over that had enough rocks for me to walk on.
From here to the end we had a better trail to walk on, this is turning back and looking back where we came from.
A touch of purple coming out on the trees :)
The following pictures were after coming out from the trails and just walking down the stream in the park.
You can tell I was happy to see any type of flower I took pictures of anything I saw :) The stream was so pretty and clear.
Hope you all are enjoying spring where you are!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by again today, have a Fantastic weekend!
