Champion and Giveaway Friday Winner!

Today I'm sharing a sneak peek of the new Mulberry Wood images coming out soon!  There are so many cute images, it was hard for me to choose. :o)

When I finally decided on this cute set called Champion, I wanted to pop the front bear, scarf, and trophy.  I stamped the image two times onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Card stock for Alcohol Markers using Memento Black ink pad. I colored with my Spectrum Noir Markers. On the base card, I colored the front bear's teammates and also outlined him and the scarf.  On the second image, I colored the front bear and the flying scarf.

I used gold acrylic paint on the trophy and cut it out. I used a metallic pen to outline the trophy on the base card.

For the sky, I scribbled TB4 onto a nonstick surface, spritzed alcohol and picked up color with a paintbrush.  I 'painted' in a horizontal strokes, leaving white space to look like thin clouds.

I really dig the rich colors and ease of blending with these markers. For tips on coloring with your Spectrum Noir Markers, the Spectrum Noir Blog has some great video tutorials.

Now! Announcing the winner of this adorable
Toreads EZMount Stamp Set - Aurora

Congratulations Emily
