Addicted to Stamps and More #142

I’m back with another Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge, and this week, it’s a Make Your Mark challenge.  Get out those watercolor crayons or pencils, markers, Copics, Promarkers, chalks, watercolors, sponges, stencils, masks. (anything that makes a mark) to qualify for the prize.  This week our sponsor is A Day For Daisies:

and the prize is a $12 gift certificate
And here’s my Design Team card:
I recently got this fabulous new stencil from ARTplorations and couldn’t wait to ink it up!  The stencil has been inked with three shades of Distress Inks and misted with water before placing it on some watercolor paper.  I’ve inked a matching butterfly stamp with the same three inks, misted it and stamped the tag with it.  Next comes a bit of spritzing with a marker and finally a few sequins.
Here’s what I used:
Paper:  Ranger watercolor and Neenah Solar White
Ink:  Dusty Concord, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks; and MFT Hybrid Black ink
Stamps:  STAMPlorations Trendy Butterflies and Bloom Sketches
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Lil’ Inker Designs Stitched Rectangles die, Reverse Confetti Tag Me die, ARTplorations Shower of Flutters stencil, water mister, sequins, adhesives, Tim Holtz spritzer tool, Black Soot Distress Marker
Challenges entered:
Check out the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team right here.
Back soon with more my sweet friends…

  1. Oh my…your showcase of this stencil is absolutely gorgeous! I just posted a card using the same one, but went really, really simple…using it 'just as'! I'm keeping your card for a down-the-road case…hope you don't mind! Heading back to gaze at and admire for a while longer!


  2. Not heaps of white space, but my goodness what an amazingly beautiful card. this is simply fabulous, the watercolour effect and those gorgeous colours are simply wonderful!
    Thanks so much
