It's time for another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More and it's "Make Your Mark".
It includes watercolors, markers, color pencils - anything to mark up your project.
I chose to use Distress Inks to watercolor my background and Copics for my fun little Lawn Fawn images. I just love these little coffee stamps and dies from the Love You a Latte set.
I die cut the watercolor cardstock using MFT Blueprints 13 and also cut a piece of Echo Park "Head Over Heels" pattern paper with the same die. I used MFT Snow Drifts die to cut the wavy edge on the bottom of my panel to allow the snippet of pretty paper to show. I added water and drops of Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar for my background. Once dry, I added the colored images with foam tape and stamped the sentiment. I used my twine bow (I can hardly make a card without one) down near the bottom to ground my mugs. Much fun to create. And, I was really happy with the colors, even though I don't usually dig the Valentine's theme. (I know - it's like a betrayal to my card maker's soul. But Valentine's colors and all just don't do it for me.)
I am also playing along with the current Lawnscaping Challenge - Watercoloring, Simon Says Stamp - Ombre challenge (my watercolor background), and The Paper Players - Clean & Simple Valentine.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! I hope you will come back soon - and I hope you will hop over to check things out at Addicted to Stamps & More; play along while you are there.
