Shine...ATSM Make Your Mark #137, W&W Join in to Win, Seize the Birthday~Anything Goes


Hello!

Welcome to Addicted to Stamps and More #137 where my fabulous design team and I are inviting you to join us in showcasing cards where you *Make Your Mark*.  
Pencils, markers,  paints, chalks, gelatos...essentially, anything that allows you to 'make your mark' is on tap for this week's challenge.

My flirting with the Chameleon pens pens continues, as does my butterfly addiction...I think I'm slowly, slowly getting a better handle on the Chameleons. Sloooowwwwly!



As a little extra enticement to play along, we're being sponsored by

Prize is 4 digis from the store

After visiting my wonderfully talented team mates' creations, which are guaranteed to dazzle and delight, dash to your stash of  colouring/painting tools, and design a little something to share in the ATSM gallery.  I'm looking forward to being inspired by your creativity!

I'm also adding my card  to:





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

This is so pretty Carol. How are you getting on with the Chameleons? My friend was trying to decide whether to chuck the Copics and go with them. :)

Wow, I think you have definitely figured out those pens!! Your coloring on these butterflies is stunning! Just the right touch, it looks like to me.

I'm glad you're finally getting the hang of your Chameleon Pens. It shows in these gorgeous butterflies. I'm finally getting the idea with my Inktense pencils so it looks like we're both on the right track.

Well, I think you've mastered your pens, Carol! Your butterflies are absolutely GORGEOUS and I love how you played with your sentiment! Choosing two colors has such a great impact, and placing 'shine' on an angle was a brilliant idea! Another fabulous card, my friend!!!

You really, REALLY underestimate your coloring/blending ability! The butterflies are stunning! Beautiful choices of colors for each Papilionoidea, Lovely movement from the bottom flutter-by through the sentiment and up, up and away with the top winged beauty!
