Spectrum Noir Vintage Sparkle

Have you seen the latest color additions to the Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens? These gorgeous Vintage hues are simply stunning!


Here, I created a gift box using my Big Score scoring board, and used the colored design for the topper. I colored these tropical stamps from the Sheena Douglass Tropical Nectar stamp set with Spectrum Aqua watercolor markers, and then overlaid the watercoloring with Vintage hue Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers.


The inside of the box has a fun little compartment for a special gift, and space left over to tuck in some yummy goodies!
