UK Spectrum Noir Colorista Blog Hop!!

Friday, September 2, 2016
Welcome to join us for another Colorista blog hop!! This blog hop is actually for UK's launch of Spectrum Noir Colorista range, so don't get confused with the blog hop held last month for the US launch. For our friends and fans in UK, tune in Hochanda channel to catch special deals for Colorista! If you are in US, you can watch the show online at Hochanda's website! See below for the show times and dates.

Make sure to check out all the projects, leave comments on each blog between September 2nd  (7am EST) - September 9th (6:59am EST) and enter to win fabulous prizes! A prize will be drawn for each blog you visit so you will a total of 14 chances to win plus overall winner! Each of the 14 winners will receive either pencils, pens, card making sets or paper pads and the overall winner will receive a selection of all mentioned.


I made this project for this event, turned my coloring page into an envelope! What's better than sending a beautiful colored page on the outside instead of in the envelope (or both - one on the inside and one as the envelope)?!! 

I first colored one of many fabulous coloring pages from the Premium Markers Pad with Spectrum Noir Colorista pens then cut to form an envelope template. I love the these coloring pads so much because it's made of thick quality papers so the inks won't soak through the back of the coloring page! Many other coloring books in the market the pages usually aren't as thick and high quality. Another thing I love about this range is the Colista Pens, love the ultra fine nib on one end to allow you to get the detailed part of the image that can't be easily reached with a brush nib. 


I think this would cheer up my day if I were to find this in my mailbox, it's colorful, handmade (colored with love), flowery, it's like a bundle of love!! 


I hope you enjoy my project! It's simple but totally a wonderful idea to show someone that you are thinking about them. Don't you agree?! Now hop on and check out what our very talented Giovana Smith has in store for you! Following is the complete list of blog hop links in case you lost your way! lol.

I do love to colour and I am hoping with the help of the talented ladies doing the Colorista course I will improve. Can't wait for these to be available in the UK! Many thanks for the fabulous blog hop and for sharing your beautiful pieces of art with us Karen x
