Addicted to Stamps and More #142

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

I'm back with another Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge, and this week, it's a Make Your Mark challenge.  Get out those watercolor crayons or pencils, markers, Copics, Promarkers, chalks, watercolors, sponges, stencils, masks. (anything that makes a mark) to qualify for the prize.  This week our sponsor is A Day For Daisies:

and the prize is a $12 gift certificate

And here's my Design Team card:

I recently got this fabulous new stencil from ARTplorations and couldn't wait to ink it up!  The stencil has been inked with three shades of Distress Inks and misted with water before placing it on some watercolor paper.  I've inked a matching butterfly stamp with the same three inks, misted it and stamped the tag with it.  Next comes a bit of spritzing with a marker and finally a few sequins.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Ranger watercolor and Neenah Solar White
Ink:  Dusty Concord, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks; and MFT Hybrid Black ink
Stamps:  STAMPlorations Trendy Butterflies and Bloom Sketches
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Rectangles die, Reverse Confetti Tag Me die, ARTplorations Shower of Flutters stencil, water mister, sequins, adhesives, Tim Holtz spritzer tool, Black Soot Distress Marker

Challenges entered:
