Christmas in a Tea Cup & Baby Jesus in a Manger - Nov Spectrum Noir Class

Busy teaching a lot of classes these days, but I do have something new to post for you today. I finally got around to making the cards for the Nov Spectrum Noir class. Using stamped images that require a bit more detail colouring, but they are so adorable! Here are the cards.

The first one on the left is a stamp from Stampavie by Tina Wenke titled "Baby Jesus With Animals". Lots of detail in that little stamp. You can't tell that the halo and some of the light has a very light touch of Diamond Stickles.

These are the Spectrum Noir markers used for this image-
CT1, CT2, CT3, CT4, GB8, GB10, IG1, IG2, IG4, IG6, IG8, EB1, EB2, EB5, EB7, BG1, BG2, BG4, BG6, BG8, BG10, FS2, FS3, FS6, GB5, TN7, BGR1, 7 TB2, as well as the blender pen.

The second card, a stamp by Penny Black titled "Christmas in a Cup" is so adorable. I just love that big smile on the little mouse's face while he sleeps.

It was a bit of a challenge to try and get the gold to look like the gold you find on many tea cups, but I think I succeeded.

I had so much fun colouring this cute little mouse in the tea cup. These are the Spectrum Noir markers I used to colour this image with.

IG1, IG2, IG4, IG6, EB1, EB2, TN2, FS2, FS6, BT1, BT2, TB1, TB2, DG2, DG4, BG1, BG2, BGR1, CT1, GB8, GB10, CR11, DR7, & the blender pen.

Well, I hope you enjoyed looking at my colouring of these two images for our November Spectrum Noir class and are inspired to try some colouring of your own.

Happy colouring!

Wow, love the coloring technique you used on the mouse/teacup image! Especially the outline shadowing!
