When did you first start drawing/experimenting with inks/ crafting? I started my crafting Journey 7 years ago & I craft almost everyday since then. I tried Spectrum Noir markers as my first art tool & I fall in love with them & with colors since that lol :D.

What made you start?I was a little depressed after giving birth of my daughter Noor & taking a long work vacation (3 years) from my main job (as a dentist). I searched about fun way to escape that depression mood & I found crafting as a shelter for my soul.

Are you a full-time artist or is this a hobby that you love to do? I'm a part time artist & crafter besides my part time job as a dentist & my tasks as a mom to 10 years old daughter & husband.

What inspires your art? Vivid colors, nature, flowers, sparkling things.

What’s your top tip for marker art/lettering/alcohol inks? My top tip is to take your time coloring, starting with quite large images to start practicing, starting with light shades is always easiest to blend & finally saturate the paper with ink that will make the blending magic happened.

What is your favourite Spectrum Noir product? Spectrum Noir Triblend markers & water reactive ink pads.

Which Spectember theme/prompt have you chosen and why? (prompt 8) show us your sparkle & 12 ink it up: as I'm so in love with sparkle inks & love sparkling cards.
(prompt 15) mix up your media: as it is right up my street lol.
(prompt 16) follow a sketch : as I like challenges like this.
(prompt 17) create a scene: as I love creating scenes with markers for interesting one dimension cards full of art & interest.
(prompt 23) stamp it: as I want to show how we can use the awesome Spectrum Noir products with all the stamps from all different companies & by having Spectrum Noir markers & inks in out stash we can any time create artistic piece using stamps we already have in our stash

When did you start working on the Spectrum Noir design team? Since May 2019 in a magical unbelievable moment, so blessed & honered to be in the team among these punch of super talented artists & crafters 😀
