Spectrum Noir markers - thought I'd give them a try...

A while back I came upon an offer of a free card kit that contained two Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I just had to pay the shipping cost. Because I love using my ProMarkers so much, I thought I ought to give the Spectrum Noir brand a try, as well.

Here is the card I made from this little kit.
The two markers were a vibrant yellow and a turquoise. You can see how they mix when overlapped to create the green color.
The kit provided three butterfly images so that you could layer them like this, and even have an extra for another project. Isn't that a fun look?

I embossed the sentiment with some turquoise embossing powder that I just happened to have on  hand.

Are you recovered from the holidays and back into your normal day-to-day groove? I did manage to get all my Christmas decorations put away and the house put to rights. I'm having a bit of a struggle, though, to get back to my usual crafting schedule.

Another one of my problems of late is that I haven't felt like cooking a thing! With all the cooking and baking I did for Christmas, I'd just as soon have chips and salsa for dinner for awhile. My poor husband would rather have some decent meals, but he's kind enough to eat the scanty ones I've been preparing without complaint. Tonight it was some potsticker dumplings (frozen in a bag-just had to cook them in a little oil and water) and some frozen vegetables (yes - I cooked them!). Maybe I'll dish us up some ice cream to have with our (Christmas) cookies later on. I sure hope I get back some of my old enthusiasm for cooking soon. Even I'm bored with what I'm serving!

Happy New Year to all of you, and thanks so much for visiting my blog today and during the past year. Your comments are so encouraging, and I appreciate every one of them.

As usual, don't forget to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

I haven't used the Spectrum Noir markers yet. Your card is so pretty and vibrant, Cheryl! And I love how you popped up a second one...looks very realistic! I'm just like you are about food. Ugh... Ewww..... And cooking? EWWWWW! Finished up all leftovers today, thank goodness! Aren't we a mess? Our poor hubbies. Take care, and Happy New Year!

It's a lovely card! I keep seeing the Spectrum Noir markers, but as curious as I am about them, I'm just not sure.

My hubby is in the same spot. Dinner tonight was [instant] rice cooked in coconut milk and lil' smokies I heated in a pan. LOL - It generally takes me until mid-January to feel like cooking again!
