Today I'm sharing a sneak peek of the new Mulberry Wood images coming out soon!  There are so many cute images, it was hard for me to choose. :o)

When I finally decided on this cute set called Champion, I wanted to pop the front bear, scarf, and trophy.  I stamped the image two times onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock for Alcohol Markers using Memento Black ink pad. I colored with my Spectrum Noir Markers. On the base card, I colored the front bear's teammates and also outlined him and the scarf.  On the second image, I colored the front bear and the flying scarf.

I used gold acrylic paint on the trophy and cut it out. I used a metallic pen to outline the trophy on the base card.

For the sky, I scribbled TB4 onto a nonstick surface, spritzed alcohol and picked up color with a paintbrush.  I 'painted' in a horizontal strokes, leaving white space to look like thin clouds.

I really dig the rich colors and easy of blending these markers. For tips on coloring with your Spectrum Noir Markers, the Spectrum Noir Blog has some great video tutorials.
