ATSM #252 - Make Your Mark

Good morning all!

This week's challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More is Make Your Mark (MYM). Basically what this means is to add something else besides just a stamped image. Whether it be water coloring, splatters, ink bending etc.


Here is what I created featuring No Regrets by Unity Stamp Co.

I did some water color "smooshing" to the background and added ink splatters.

Now it's your turn.
We would love to see your take on the challenge!

My first set of cards feature Beth Silaikas new set Karen Dolphin. I did some water color "smooshing" on my first card with various GKD inks. I sponged the three dolphins with the same inks and fussy cut them out. Lastly I added Glossy accents to the splash images and a sentiment.

My second card below was shown during the release party. The sea creatures were either sponged or colored with Zig Real brush markers and fussy cut. Water splatters were added to the background and the sentiment was heat embossed.




My second set of cards features Lovely Lilies by Claire Brennan. The flowers were stamped and fussy cut out and adhered to a water colored background.

Below is another card that was shown during release night. I kept it clean and simple. The strip of black and white diagonal patterned paper is by GKD called Petite Patterns
