Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #172



Hello there ~
It's time for another fun challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More, but before I introduce the details, I wanted to let you know that we have a new blog badge. You are welcome to save the badge above, and add it to your sidebar and challenge posts for the future ~

For this challenge, our theme is 'Make Your Mark'! That means you can use pencils, markers, inks or whatever you like to color with...
Our Sponsor is Stamplorations, and the winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the store!

Here is my first card:




I just can't get enough of these fun little skater kids, so I inked them up, colored them with Copic markers, and masked a few cloud dies behind them to create a sky. I embossed the card base with PTI's Linen/Canvas Impression Plate on Soft Stone cardstock, and added a strip of black cardstock and a banner for the sentiment...and, that was it!

I love coloring with my Copic markers, so I created a 2nd card for this challenge:


 

I used three different Mama Elephant sets for this card ~ The pups and sentiment is from 'Playful Pups', the tree is from 'Cozy Christmas', and the hats are from 'Arctic Penguins'. I used Embossing Paste on the SSS Falling Snow stencil, and added some dry glitter to add sparkle. I also added a touch of clear Wink of Stella to the hats, scarf and heart.

This is my last post before the long holiday weekend, so I would like to wish all of my American friends a very Happy Thanksgiving! 

For more inspiration, please stop over at the at Addicted to Stamps & More Blog ~ We would love to have you play along! Thanks so much for stopping by ~

Barb, what fun cards you have created. Those skater are so much fun with the alternating blue tops, and the red heart shorts are adorable. Your Christmas tree is gorgeously colored. Fabulous job on both cards.
