ATSM #67 - Make Your Mark


Hi everyone, hope you're having a good week so far. It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More and this week is Make Your Mark - use pens, pencils, crayons, chalks, powders or paints on your project.

Our generous sponsor is Nicecrane Designs and this week's Top Addict will receive a $20 gift certificate to use at their store.

Here's how I made my DT card.

1. Stamp and heat emboss the seedheads in black.
2, Scribble with distress markers onto a craft sheet, lightly spray with water and place the piece of embossed card face down onto the ink. To get more intense colour, wait until the piece is dry, scribble the markers onto your craft sheet again and pick up some of the ink with Cut N Dry foam and apply to your card.
3, Stamp the little leaves and letters/words in black Archival and highlight here and there with a white gel pen.

The DT have made some gorgeous creations - don't forget to check it out at the ATSM challenge blog and we do hope you can join in the fun!

This card is also for Inkspirational #41 - Anything Goes and Lavinia Stamps challenge #8 - Autumn Colours.

Supplies:
Seedhead and leaf stamps - Lavinia Stamps
Mini alphabet stamps - Hero Arts
Distress markers - Tim Holtz
