Addicted to Stamps and More #172

Hi guys

Can you believe it's time for another new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More?!  Where do these weeks go?  Those of you that follow the challenge will know we follow a sequence of challenge themes and this week we're back with our regular theme...

Make Your Mark
You can find the challenge guidelines here.

Our Sponsor this week is the fabulous Stamporations and one lucky winner will receive a $10 gift certificate!

Here's my DT card...

Although I'm in desperate need of some Christmas cards right now I went ahead and made a girlie birthday card!  No idea why! lol

I stamped this lovely image from The Greening Farm and learned the hard way as, after completing my first coloured image I stamped the sentiment at the end and then dropped my stamp right over the image! Arrghhhh......so I had to start the whole thing again from scratch!

On a white cardstock panel I stamped the image and then stamped the sentiment alongside BEFORE I commenced my colouring!  I coloured the image with my ProMarkers and FlexMarkers, although I'm still struggling with my lack of blendable shades (note to self...stop buying stamps and get more markers!).  I covered the card base with some neutral polka dot paper and then adhered the panel in the bottom right corner.  

Materials used:
  • Stamps: The Greeting Farm - Rain Snow Shine; Clearly Besotted - It's Your Birthday
  • Ink: Impress - Jet Black; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Coloured with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers
  • Patterned Paper: MFT - Dots & Stripes Neutral
