Addicted to Stamps and More #117

Are you ready to Make Your Mark for us at Addicted to Stamps and More? Your mark can be any kind of marker, pencil, water colour paint etc.

I am not the best at colouring using markers but decided to pull out my copics and give it a go!


Check out my new watermark! This was designed by Addicted to Stamps owner and my very dear friend Kylie. If you want your own watermark check out her blog here for details. She got Big Ben in there for me! I need to learn how to re-size it a bit but wanted to show you all today.

I tried to channel my inner Nonni who introduced me to copics and gave me lots of pointers. Here I used copics on the boxed bloom stamp from STAMPlorations and also used the lay out from their sketch challenge. The background I found in my scrap-I had been trying out embossing on top of water colouring about a year ago and didn't like this but when I added it to this card, I changed my mind!

This week at Addicted to Stamps and More we are sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet and you could be the very lucky winner of 3 of their fabulous digis!

I will also enter this into the following challenges:
STAMPloration October -embossing and stamping
STAMPloration AG-I have used 'boxed blooms' and the sentiment is from 'patchwork frenzy'

  7. Well done with the Copics Sandie, great boxed bloom! Its amazing how something we didn't like looks so much better after a while. My art tutor always said never throw anything away but to come back to it at a later date. Fab card. :)
