My fabulous DT and I welcome you to Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #207~Make Your Mark. Bring out your paints, pencils, crayons, markers - whatever tools and devices you have - to 'make a mark' on your project. So many possibilities...
Guess what I did? Watercolour! I Did. So!! Look what my Distress markers and I created: an anniversary card for my husband. We'll be celebrating FIVE years later this month (married later in life...I was a 'mature' bride *grin*). And yes, I am very incredibly happy to be 'stuck' with him!
Apologies for the rather ''muted' photo, but after a zillion twists and turns with trying to get 'decent' lighting, this is the best I could manage for a stand-up pose. Below is the same card, laying flat.
NOTE: Thrilled and honoured to be selected as an Honourable Mention over at The Heart Desires! THANK YOU!!
Just as a side note: we had a very small wedding - 19 people. My brother was my 'maid of honour' and my husband's brother, his best man. Three guys and girl: that's our wedding photo..
My design was inspired by oh-so-creative Leigh's CAS(E) this Sketch #185
and the idea for images came from The Heart Desires Challenge #3 photo inspiration (plants and metallics - the gold beneath the row of x's and o's - are my element choices). I love cacti and I love my husband so..winning combination all around! In fact, one of my favourite places, back when we used to travel to Tucson, AZ, is the cactus forest at Saguro Natural Park. Such a fascinating place...we need to plan another visit...
Because I actually 'did' watercolour, I'm also joining Just Us Girls #356~Trend Week: Watercolour
What "Make Your Mark' creativity will you bring to the ATSM gallery this week?
Looking forward to finding out!
For even more incentive, *you* could be the winner of 2 digi stamps from our generous sponsor: STAMPlorations. Enticing, right?
Thank you for spending part of your day with me; your visit brings me joy!
