I created the sentiment and printed it in brown ink directly onto the kraft cardstock. I guess for some creating a custom sentiment is easy but I'm pretty picky when it comes to find precisely the right font and then tweaking it until the letter spacing and size are just right so I usually use stamps unless I have a very specific sentiment in mind as I did here.
They've recently announced a new design for the Spectrum Noir Markers and I wanted to have a set that matched so I sold my Prismacolor Markers on Ebay so i could complete my set before the change over occurred. A color chart is an indispensable reference when coloring and I wanted one that would fit on a standard 8.5 x 11 sheet so I've made one myself. If any of you are using Spectrum Noirs and you'd like a copy of the chart to color one for yourself you can download it here.
