Addicted to Stamps and More #112

Hi there

Well, quick as a flash we're back to Wednesday and that means a new challenge is now up and running at Addicted to Stamps and More.  And this week we're back with a challenge with the theme...

Make Your Mark

We'd like you to 'make your mark' on your projects using markers, pencils, paints, etc.

Here is my DT card...

This week our Sponsor is the fabulous Stitchy Bear Stamps who are offering 3 images up to the value of $10 to one lucky winner.

I printed off the digi image onto white cardstock and coloured it in with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.  This was then cut out with a rectangular die.  I stamped the sentiment on the same white cardstock before die cutting with a tag die.  I than ran my base card through my Big Shot embossing the front in an embossing folder.  The folder is called 'basket weave' but I think it resembles a cottage wall so thought this would tie in nicely for this new home card.

Materials used:
  • Digi: Stitchy Bear Stamps - Window by My Heart Pieces
  • Stamp: Clearly Besotted - Sweet Little Sentiments
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Rectangles Large; Clearly Besotted - Tag Along
  • Embossing Folder: Sizzix - Basket Weave

I would like to enter this card at the following challenges:
