ATSM - Challenge #112 - Make Your Mark


Hello there, Blog Friends! It's Team A's turn this week at Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge! I hope you'll be able to find time to stop by and check out all of the amazing projects my Teamies have created for this challenge and play along! Our theme for this week is 'Make Your Mark', so we ask that you use any type of color medium you like to play with...Markers, Pencils, Water Colors, etc. to create your card or project.

OK, so here is the card I created, which I hope will inspire you for the challenge:



For this card, I stamped the butterfly with Versamark and embossed it with white EP. I fussy cut the image, then colored the wings with Copic markers (BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15) to create an ombre' effect. I added some small pearl gems to the body, a few DIY enamel dots and a strip of PTI polka dot patterned paper...and that was it!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Sticky Bear's Digi Outlet and the winner will receive up to 3 digi stamps up to $10.00 in value!

Thanks so much for stopping by ~
