Smile

Hello Crafter's Companion friends!

Smile - because it's Friday (thank goodness!) and because Thanksgiving is round the corner and we have lots to be thankful for!


This appropriate sentiment is from Humphrey's Catching Up set and the oh so cute kitty is from Strawberry Kisses Little Miss set.

I am loving my Spectrum Noir Markers more and more with each practice just because I can see some progress.  It is so easy to achieve awesome contrast and depth with so few markers!

With this image, I used DG2, DG3, DG4 for the bag; IG2, IG4 for the cat; PP1 for the heart and CT4, CT1 for her bow. I hope you will give these markers a try.

Thanks for stopping by!
Steph

Super cute card! You are doing great with the Spectrum pens-I am still trying but only have the pastel set and am not good at blending. But I still like the pens a lot.
