It's time for our first challenge of 2014 at Addicted to Stamps and More! This week it's "Make your Mark" time - by that I mean you use pencils, paints, markers to colour! Here's my take:
Stamps: Serendipity - Sun Garden; Craft's Meow - Circle It
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black, London Fog; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Copics (lots); Sakura Stardust Pens; Stampin' Up! Markers - several; Ribbons
I've used a couple of challenges to make this card. I got the sunshine inspiration from MUSE - MUSE#49, not literally sunshine, but the flowers from a sunny garden. I'm also submitting this to the new, updated One-Layer Simplicity Challenge - OLS#1 which is now monthly. Their theme is to restock the card stash and, obviously, be one layer.
I love this flower stamp, it just yells "colour me!" - so I did. I had so much fun using Copics, Stardust and SU markers - you can't really see the Stardust sparkle in the photo above, but in real-life it's fab! I grounded the flowers with a couple of lines of ribbon (go me - I've had this ribbon for years). On the inside I simply repeated the flower image in a softer shade of grey and added a simple, bold sentiment of thanks. This is for my stash of Thanks cards.

Last, but by no means least, our sponsor this week is DeeDee Digis, the winner of the challenge will gets 3 sets of digis - and they are lovely!
That's all for now. See you soon.
