Just go for it!

Big question – do I wait until I have finished my Spectrum Noir Colourist Course before entering the Spectrum Noir Challenge or do I just go for it?  I think I’ll just go for it especially as I have just the card for the job.

The criteria for this month is that there must be some green somewhere.


Materials used:                                                                                                                                                            Doo Lally Pip Arabella stamp                                                                                                                                       black Memento ink pad                                                                                                                                                   white Neenah card                                                                                                                                                             green card in two shades                                                                                                                                                 A5 white card blank                                                                                                                                                         piece of green ribbon from a Christmas chocolate box                                                                                   Spectrum Noir Pens

I stamped Arabella onto an  A5 piece of the Neenah card and onto a piece of scrap Neenah card.  Using the pens I coloured in the whole of the image on the A5 card and just the dress on the other image.  I trimmed the green card and stuck together leaving a small border .  I also trimmed the white card but before mounting it on the green wrapped a piece of green ribbon around the bottom.  The sentiment was stamped onto Neenah trimmed and double mounted on the green card before sticking onto the base card.  I then cut out the dress on the second image and decoupaged it on top of the card image using gel glue.  

I do apologise for the quality of the photograph, I am having trouble with the camera today, not to mention the lack of light!

My  youngest daughter is always dancing so I think this card will eventually be heading her way.

Thanks for popping in.  Take care.


I would like to enter this card into the Spectrum Noir Challenge                       


About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
