Make your Mark

At Addicted to Stamps and More this week we are asked to use our markers on a project.

A bit dull outside today so the colours don't look as bright as they really are.

I made this card for a friend. I used a mixture of Personal Expressions and Kanban stamps by masking the stamp of the lady and using the swirl and clock on top of the masking.

The background is a paper by Crafty Individuals  from the Travels in Italy Book 5.

I used Promarkers to colour my image and on the page from an old book that I used for a bit of extra backing and for the paper roses.

Hope you pop over and see the DT pieces-amazing as always and then join in with your own version.

Chrissie, the card is delightful! I like the colors and design. I haven't really tried my hand with markers because of their fumes. I wonder if Promarkers have strong fumes.

Isn't it exciting to make things for others? The weather may be gloomy, but your card brightens the day.

Blessings for a sunny day,
