ATSandM Make Your Mark! challenge 4

Hi everyone, thank you to all who entered our Addicted to Stamps and More sketch challenge last week. This week its "Make your Mark" - time to get out your marker pens and we look forward to seeing your fabulous creations!

I have to admit, I was struggling a little bit this week as I've got accustomed to using TH distress inks and aqua brush for colouring in and haven't used markers very much lately.  Hmm, looking at the finished article, I'm not at all sure about the wisdom of using the striped background!

For inspiration, I started off with this piece of stripey paper, selected three matching Promarkers and a butterflies stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs, added a diecut/embossed frame, ribbon and die cut sentiment also coloured with one of the Promarkers.

Why not pop over to Addicted to Stamps and More and check out the superb cards the other DT members have made!

I'm loving the stripes, Sue! Blue and green is one of my favorite color combos. Also really cute with those extra butterflies you have cut out!

Oh Sue those butterflies are just amazing - they seem to almost float off the card. Very realistic and this card is just terrific. Hugs D
