Addicted to Stamps and More #147

Hello All

It is time for our 'Make your Mark' challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. This is the challenge that really challenges me! I made this card a while ago and am not that impressed with it and decided to share it anyway. I was practising my water colouring.


I gold embossed first and then water coloured trying to make the centre of the flower darker. Finished it off with some spritz glitter.

We are sponsored this week by Dee dees digis-check out their amazing store.

Our DT have done a great job at 'making their mark'-check out their cards here and then get creating!

  11. There's absolutely nothing wrong with this card. Perhaps it is the lack of sequins and a heat embossed larger sentiment that makes you feel this way. It's the only thing I can see misses in order for it to be a typical Sandie card, though it doesn't need anything more:)

  12. Sandie, your card is incredibly pretty; the shading is visible and the colour...oh my! Beautiful! You should feel good about this...and if not, add a couple sequins, as Pia suggested, to see if that 'feels' better. My view: crushing all over it!

  15. What beautiful colours and they go so well with the gold embossing. This challenge always 'challenge's' me too, although I don't seem to be able to stop water colouring at the moment. I'm sure it will be a phase for me and I'll be back to stamping soon.......
