August Already ...

Hi Everybody,

I hope you are all well and enjoying any bit of the summer that you happened to find... and there hasn't been much this year... and already it is August.

Does anybody know where the rest of this year has gone ???

There has been a lot of happening here at Card Making Magic since I got back from Canada and one of the things I have been doing is creating a series of videos on colouring in.

The specific medium I have been using is Spectrum Noir Pens

They are alcohol an alcohol colouring system that was brought to the market in 2011, but because of the competetive price of the sets they are much more affordable for the everyday crafter.

They were developed by crafters for crafters and you can get them from many outlets or direct from Crafters Companion

At present there are 9 videos in the series and more will be added as I go along.

But to start you off and to introduce the pens and how they work here is the first one ... Spectrum Noir Introduction

That page will then give you the links you need to the other videos in the series.

I hope you will find them useful to you in your own colouring.... especially if you are new to the pens, colouring in or even new to the website.

And maybe add your coloured in card creations to the Gallery
