NOTICE ABOUT MY BLOG IMAGES

PHOTOBUCKET, MY IMAGING HOSTING PROVIDER HAS RECENTLY SWITCHED FROM BEING A FREE SERVICE TO CHARGING IN EXCESS OF £300 A YEAR (for third party embedding of images)
         
This was done with no notice to users of the service and has plunged many a blog owner in to dispair!
                  
Please bear with me whilst I relocate the 1500 images on this blog to a new provider and slowly work through all my blog posts fixing each one at a time.

Combining Spectrum Noir Products - Aqua Markers & Sparkle Pens

Good morning friends! You may have seen THIS card recently on my blog.

Today I'm sharing the same basic layout but instead of just Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, I added a little of the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens to the background and coloured the whole of the butterfly with the Sparkle Pens.  
                  
                                   
Because both of these products are waterbased, they really do work fantastically together, giving even more scope for fantastic colour filled projects!
                           
You can find a list of all the materials I used below.  I am also planning (in the near future!!) to do a video tutorial for this style of card, including how to do this background, so stay tuned for that.
