So Sweet of You...ATSM #127~Make Your Mark, STAMPlorations~Anything Goes

Hello!

Time to welcome 2015 with a new challenge: Addicted to Stamps and More #127~Make Your Mark.

I'm thrilled to be joining  my new and old team-mates here with this challenge that invites you to create a card using markers, pencils, paints, chalks, gelatos...essentially, anything that allows you to 'make your mark'.

My flirting with the Chameleon pens and STAMPlorations' Sugar Rush continues; also coming out to play is my new Reverse Confetti 'you' die from Tag Me, Too Confetti Cuts. This time, I have a no-calorie, double treat to share with you.  Do you see something else new? Yep, my card is sporting a shiny, special ATSM watermark, created by our sweet leader, Kylie.


As a little extra enticement to play along, we're being sponsored by generous, talented and creative Michele over at


who is offering the winner a $20 gift certificate. Awesome! See...no excuses not to play!

Run, very quickly, to your stash of  colouring/painting tools, and design a little something that I know will be dazzling and delightful.  I'm looking forward to checking out your creativity in the ATSM gallery!

I'm also adding my card (yes, another one, wonderful Shery, to STAMPlorations~Anything Goes challenge.



Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs...

Oh-so-lovely! I just got this set in the mail and I can't wait to play with it, but I"m sure I won't do it nearly as much justice as you've done. I have to figure out how to do the raised sentiment die that blends into the image. It looks so cool!

Happy Dance said...

Nicely done, my friend! LOVE the look of the cammo die cut. Very cool. Markers, eh? I can't promise to make anything as lovely as yours, but I'll give it a shot, if time permits this month...You know how that goes. I think of you and your family often sweetie and continue to pray for your peace. Hugs to you and your mum! Bev

What a great new set! I think I have put on 10 kilos just looking at your card! I really love that die technique and am lucky enough to have won a prize from Whimsy stamps and I bought a word die with my coupon as I really want to give this a go. Great card! Always thinking of you xx

Geri said...

Hey pal! Hope you're doing well.

Based on the stunning display of 'coloring', I'm thinkin' that your relationship with the Chameleon pens has progressed well past 'flirting'. Love the colors you chose - your shading is gorgeous! I wish our ice cream shop were open...a tasty sundae would be my breakfast!

Taunya Butler said...

Here you go again - showing your versatility skills, your willingness to try new things and just impressing me all over the place!!! This card is yummy and I cannot find a single thing not to be pleased as punch about it!! Your skills with new things is amazing and when I grow up, I swear I want to be a little bit like you - I say only a little because I have been in therapy enough over the years that the only person I should strive to be is myself - so I just want a little of myself to be like you!!!=] Take care, my lovely friend!! Hugs to you!!
