Addicted to Stamps Challenge #142



Hi everyone,
Well, it's time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More, and our theme is 'Make Your Mark'. You can use markers, water color inks, colored pencils...whatever medium you like to color with! A Day For Daisies is our sponsor for this challenge, and they will be awarding a $12.00 Gift Certificate to the winner.

For my first card, I used a digital image from our sponsor:


I colored this really sweet image (called "Picked Bouquet") with Copics, and die cut the panel with an old Spellbinders mat to add some texture to the card. The sentiment is stamped in black ink, except for the word 'Shine', which I embossed with Black Glitter EP.

 Here is my 2nd card:


I was so excited to play with this cute stamp set...so, I inked up the elephant and bunny and colored them in with Copic markers. I thought it would be fun to add vellum clouds and a few silver stars and to finish it off with a white embossed sentiment!

My teammates have uploaded their beautiful cards to the gallery which I hope inspires you to join us for this weeks' challenge!  

Thanks so much for stopping by...your visits and comments always make me smile ~
