Addicted to Stamps and More #147

Hi there friends, I'm back with the latest challenge details for 
Addicted to Stamps and More

It's Make Your Mark week and here's my card

I love playing with inks and water so what better way to make a 
mark on a creation than combining the two.

Card Recipe:
Using a sentiment stamp set from Clearly Besotted: Happy Birthday
the images are heat embossed using clear EP over Versafine onyx black.
I've 'washed' an area of Tim Holtz watercolour card with water in the
shape I wanted colour before adding distress inks from an acrylic block,
allowing the colours to merge slightly with their 'neighbour(s)' 
colours used are: Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade,
Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves.
(For bright and vivid colours I have to say these are my favourite Distress Inks)

We have 2 sponsors this week:

Rosey Hearts

Prize is 5 digis from the store 


Deedee will offer $15 coupon to the store for our winners.

Before you head off to your crafty den please don't forget to check out the 
stunning creations from the rest of the ATSM Design Team 

Hope you find some time to join in and I look forward to seeing your fabulous cards.
Thanks for stopping by and see you soon
