Addicted to Stamps and More #47

Hello my crafting friends,

This week at Addicted to Stamps and More the challenge is to 'make your mark'. This means you must use some kind of marker on your project-promakers, copics, stampin' writes etc.
I don't use markers much so for me this type of challenge really is a challenge!

I went for a small square card and used the layered marker technique:

I used various shades of yellow and blue promarkers for the main sections of the flowers. Then used a grey marker to outline the flowers and stem to give a shading effect. I finished off the flowers by outlining the edge of the petals and stem with a 'sakura gelly roll' pen to add some shimmer. The main flower is popped up on a foam pad for dimension.
Pop over to our blog here and see the fabulous ways that our DT have 'made their mark'!! Then get stamping and let us see your mark!

And this week you have the chance to win 2 sheets of digi images from our sponsors Whoopsie Daisy

I will also be entering this into the 'flowers' challenge at Hobby Cutz Challenges and the die cut/punches challenge at Crafting when we can

Have fun x
