Fuchsia for Friendship

Hi all! Jen (JLJ Designs) here with a new project featuring the new Paint Fusion stamps. Last week, I played with the Paint Fusion technique and had so much fun. This week, I wanted to show the versatility of these stamps and play with my Spectrum Noir markers. For my card, I stamped the images on my card stock. I layered the fuchsia and leaf with a background and sentiment from the Kanji stamp line.

I used digi papers from a digital scrapbook kit to create the background that I wanted. Then I ran the stamped images through my printer aligning my digi paper layout with the location of the stamps. I used the same masking technique with sticky notes that I used to layer the stamps themselves.

Spectrum Noir Recipe
Leaf: DG3, JG6
Purple Petals: LV1, LV2, LV3
Pink Petals: PP3, PP5, DR3

Since I'm still learning the Spectrum Noir system, I watched the instructional video, particularly the section on coloring flowers. I used the sheet that comes with the Paint Fusion stamps to guide my color choices

Here are the products I used for this project:

Happy Crafting!
