All that Glitters!

Hey guys!

New to my crafty stash last month was the Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and I just can’t get enough of them. They are a dream to work with and look stunning on all my projects.

I bought mine from Hochanda as part of the Crafters Companion launch there, so I have the clear set and the oh so gorgeous ‘Hochanda Pink’ limited edition pen! There are 18 colours available in the range, split into seven colour-themed packs of three. There are also two sets of 12 available in really cute cases named ‘Autumn-Winter’ and ‘Spring-Summer’.


I cannot rave about the effect enough! They contain fine glitter micro-pigment which looks so impressive on any project and not too in your face, just a beautiful shimmer. They have a flexible nylon brush which is a dream to use.

The crystal clear ‘top coat’ ones are my favourite because it’s easy to just embellish or accent a project with a little bit of shimmer.


The Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens are now available in the UK/Europe, and will be coming to the US soon.

Go buy some and have a play, you will LOVE them!
