Addicted To Stamps & More #187 - Make Your Mark


I'm back with a fun post for Addicted To Stamps and More current challenge - Make Your Mark. Anything coloring related or inky will do!

And our sponsor this time is:
Eureka Stampede 

QKR Stampede and Eureka Stamps was purchased by Stamp On It in 2013 from the state of Colorado and moved to its new home in Michigan! We(Stamp On It) had its humble beginnings over 25 years ago and is now a mobile(on-the-road) family owned and operated business. We travel coast to coast and attend as a vendor over 25 retail stamping and scrapping shows each year. 

Now for my card:
I used a fun image I had already colored up and cut using my Silhouette Pix Scan mat (love! It's super really great for digi images). This little bird is from Bugaboo and I colored it using PrismaColor Pencils. I inked my background panel (Cut with MFT Blueprints 13) using MFT Pineapple Die ink. I then die cut the oval scallop from also from MFT and PTI Simply Chartreuse cardstock. I die cut some Bazzil scrap cardstock using the Blueprints 25 for the sentiment strip and stamped it from the LJD You're The Sweetest stamp set. My card base is MFT Ripe Raspberry cardstock. It was really fast to put together since I had already cut and colored my image! I have to remember to keep more ready to go and on hand like this in the future. Maybe I can color a bunch one day, cut another, and then have them to make a card when inspiration strikes! (I'm all about changing my life to better suit my moods.) :D That was a quote in there, if anyone can identify it, I'd be most impressed!
Thanks SO much for stopping by to visit! Please do so again! And don't forget to join in the Make Your Mark fun over at Addicted to Stamps and More. :)

  1. I'm blown away by your fabulous colouring of this sweet image! Impressive! And setting your colourful feathered friend on the green/pineapple background adds marvelous impact. Isn't colouring fun! As for your quote...hmmm. I'm guessing Santana, with 'your mood' switched out to 'my moods' in your version. Clever, creative YOU!

  2. Oh my gosh, this is absolutely adorable, Mandy! Beautiful coloring and shading with your pencils, and I love the oval frame! Really cute card!
