A Little Bird Told Me

Today on the Spectrum Noir blog I am sharing a tutorial teaching how to color woodgrain texture with Spectrum Noir markers.


The digital stamp I have used for this project is “Alannah” from Whimsy Stamps. Colored with Spectrum Noir markers on Spectrum Noir Ultrasmooth Premium White Cardstock.

  1. Very gorgeous card, Jodi. Alannah is still available through Miss Daisy Stamps. Thank you for sharing your beautiful creation. Your colouring, shading, highlighting, designing is fabulous. It was a very lovely surprise to be tagged on your Facebook post. Thank you. Happy Stamping! Love, Miss Daisy


  2. Hi Jodi I love your cards and use of spectrum noir markers!!!!!! They are beautiful!!!! I have been think of trying these markers out myself as I found the promarkers I have are not lasting long and I was just wondering do the spectrum noir markers dry out quite quick?


    1. Hi, thank you for your kind comments! The Spectrum Noir markers do not dry out quickly. I am actually surprised with how much I color that I have only had to refill a handfull of my mostly used colors. Being that they are alcohol based, I do make sure to recap each one as soon as I’m done using it. I’ve been coloring with the SN’s for a few years now and I love them 🙂


      1. That’s great thank you so much for your reply and your help!!!! I didn’t actually realise that promarkers have such a tendency to dry out especially so quickly as I have just had them over a year, hardly used and they are the first alcohol pens I had heard off and used because so many others seemed to be using them. But now this has happened I have looked into other markers that blend well together in card making and plenty of people have said in reviews that they now are using the Spectrum Noir markers so just want an opinion on life span. I now pens do eventually run dry with usage just i hadnt my markers that long and dont want to waste miney especially if there are better options out there for me and how I used them. Thank you again for all your help now trying to decide what colour of spectrum Noir marker pens to purchase for myself first as a wee starter 🙂
