Sunflower Goodbye

Mixed Goodbye

Sunflower GoodbyeHello there!! I’ve been messing around with my blog, trying to give it a new look, and I’m still not sure what I’m doing.  I think I like it so far, but  I will continue to play, and try to get it to where I want it.  I am so technologically illiterate, though, that it will most likely take a lot of time!!

It’s time for another new challenge at  Addicted to Stamps and More

and it’s a favorite….Make Your Mark!!

Our sponsor is

who are offering 2 digital images to a lucky winner :)  My teammates have made their mark in the most wonderful ways, so please be sure to stop by and see their projects and prepare to be amazed!!

I didn’t know what to make my mark with for this card, so I just kept playing along, making marks with whatever caught my fancy at the moment!!   I used Stamplorations Close Up Flower image, which I think has been discontinued, because I can’t find it in their shop (found a bunch more to get me into trouble, though, lol).  You might have better luck finding it……  I colored it with my SN markers, then sponged some Distress ink around the edges of the card.  I got out a stencil by Tim Holz, and used a couple darker shades of the DI to ink it….I overlapped onto the flower a bit, so it appears to blend into the background.  Stamps make marks, so I took a pretty fluorish stamp, and added that in a few places…. THEN, well, mists make marks…..grin – I was starting to have fun here!! I gave a few quick spritzes of Antique Gold Glimmer mist.  My paint was looking rather left out, so did a quick few spatters with gold paint, before stamping the sentiment.  I had so much fun playing with so many different mediums, I hope you like my card :)  Stop by Addicted to Stamps and More and show us what kind of mark you can make :)

  2. Running late with comments this week: apologies! Your card: absolutely gorgeous! Your colouring of the daisy…so impressive!

  3. Super card Susan, think the daisy flower is from the stamp club series, ‘ Bloom Sketches’ one of my favourites. There used to be a single stamp as well. :)
