ASM - Make Your Mark ....

.... Hello, good evening!  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  This week it's Make Your Mark; you need to make sure that you use markers on your entry - Copics, Promarkers, Stampin' Up!, pencils, chalks - anything that makes a mark!  Our sponsor for this week's challenge is Eureka Stamps and the winner will get three digi images.  Here's my card:

Bonjour detail - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's GemsI had such a good time learning to use my Copic markers that I've been colouring lots of digi images and I found a new Company - Aurora Wings - recently and got this cute kitty.  She's called Catrina and has a face decorated like the Mexican ladies do for the Day of the Dead festival (and yes, I do know, that I'm late!!).  I simply coloured her with Copic markers, added a ground, let the sun shine around her and added some sparkle and shimmer to her feathers and necklace.  I layered the finished image on some design paper.  I stamped some subtle pattern on the card base and a simple sentiment.  The inside has a mat layer of the same design paper and a plain white panel for my message.  Here's a close up of Catrina's hat showing the sparkle on her feathers!

I'm submitting this card to the Aurora Wings Challenge No 9  where the theme is Anything Goes. I love this image and there are so many other lovely digis to play with too.

Check out the blog for more inspiration cards with our Make Your Mark challenge.  See you soon.

You did an amazing job with your Copics, Deborah! I love how you used 'The Day of the Dead Festival' for your inspiration, and your sentiment is so charming, too :)

Your coloring is so beautiful, Deborah! Can you come teach me?! :) Cute little background that you stamped, too. So subtle as to not take away from your image, but a great extra little touch!
