Addicted to Stamps and More #72

Its time for the 'Make your Mark' challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. This means you can use any kind of marker on your project-copics, promarkers, water colour paints or pencils etc........whatever marker you want to use.
As most of you know I find colouring a challenge but I also find it very relaxing. So I am beginning to look forward to this challenge. I learn something new every time this week comes around.

This week I used my copics and followed this tutorial by fellow DT member and dear friend Nonni. I followed this tutorial very closely but used a different trio of copics in pinkish colours. And, as this week we are being sponsored by Fresh Squeezed Stamps (you know how much I love their stamps!), I have used all FSS on my card. This is what I came up with:

(hover over the image and click on the pin)

I followed Nonni's tutorial to colour my umbrella and then masked it off to stamp the cloud and lightening. I kept the design very CAS as I wanted to show off my colouring (I hope I am not hearing any giggling!!).

This card was left for hubby recently when I went into hospital (this is a very pre-scheduled post-as I am hoping I have been in hospital for the 2 weeks and am safely back at home now!)

Our DT have made some wonderful projects using markers, so take a peek here then get those markers out and join in the fun. You could win a Fresh Squeezed Stamp of your choice!
