Addicted to Stamps and More #111

This week at Addicted to Stamps and More it is our Anything Goes Challenge but we have an optional twist of Get Well/Thinking of You. We are doing this as Marie one of our original DT members here and currently on the DT of Addicted to CAS is having a rough time and we wanted to cheer her up. So you can make any kind of card but we would love it if you made a card with our optional twist to put a smile on Marie's face.
So Marie, here is my card dedicated to you:


This card was made immediately after I saw the photo at Fusion this week combined with the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch. They come out at about the same time and when I saw them I had a 'ping' moment and got stamping and water colouring. I was inspired by the brick wall and colours in the photo. This brick stamp has never been used before but it gave the perfect angle I wanted to fit in with the sketch. The hummingbird was water coloured (my new fine brush coming in very useful here!) and fussy cut out, popped up for dimension.This stamp is from Uniko Studios.

I hope you like your card Marie and I hope it cheered you up a bit-thinking of you hon x

AAA cards game this week is CAS and water colouring so I am entering this challenge. And the Mixed Media Card Challenge is looking for Autumn colour and as I have brown, yellow and red I am going to enter here too.

This week our sponsor is Stamp Art Designs and you have chance to win some digis from their fabulous store.

The DT have come up with some great cards to inspire you.

Hope you can join us x
