Say it with Flowers!

Hello there,

I really do apologise for my lack of regular blogging!  I put myself on the naughty step, had a think and promise to try not to neglect it for so long!

So, who's up for the Spectrum Noir Challenge!  All you need to do is grap your Spectrum Noir colouring medium (must be SN materials) and enter the challenge on Spectrum Noir Facebook page

You don't need a blog, just use the tab up on the header, and fill in the details, upload your pic and then you're in for a chance of winning £30/$30 worth of SN goodies!

So, with a flower theme, here's my inspiration as a part of the Spectrum Noir Education Design Team....

The Crafter's Companion Downton Abbey Papercrafting collection is a collection I return to so often.
It's such a rich luxury collection that so many ideas pop into my head when I pick it up!

Here's what I used...
Downton Abbey Stamp set
Spectrum Noir markers:
LV1,2,4,5, LG1,2,3,4
Downton Abbey CD1 - Coordinating paper

Crafter's Companion Matt Black card, Neenah Solar White, Collal All Purpose glue

I do hope you can join in, and I lovvvvveeee flower cards so I'm excited to see all your entries.

Thank you so much for stopping by and please do leave me a little comment before you leave xx
