ATSM Challenge #157 – MYM

I’m back with a post for this week’s ATSM #157 which is our Make Your Mark (MYM) Challenge.

Addicted to Stamps and More!

Here are the rules for the MYM challenge:

Make your Mark – your entry MUST contain the use of anything that can make a mark – Stampin’ Write, Copics, Promarkers, Painting, Chalks, Watercolors, Sponges, Stencils, Masks etc etc

Our Sponsor for this challenge is:

The Prize is a $20 gift certificate!

 For this MYM I made 3 cards, each one is slightly different from the other,
but all using the PTI Peony Cover Plate Die and Faber Castell Gelatos.
The first 2 are a sister pair. I colored the die cut itself and used it for this first card.
I lightly traced the outline of the peony onto the card front as a guide, then I sponged some ink onto the front of the card base and adhered the die cut and the sentiment. The sentiment is a free digi stamp from Little Tangles.
While coloring the die cut I also used it as a stencil and used it to make a print for the 2nd 1-layer card.
Here’s a photo of the work in progress.

      Here is the 3rd card that I have to share with you.IMG_7384edited

Please see the following slide show for more details of how I made this 3rd card. I used the same basic technique for this last card as for the second one in this post. However, for this last card I added I white die cut on top of the colored background.

You can see the sister of the 3rd card in this post, where I used the colored die cut itself, here.
