ADDICTED TO STAMPS - First Ever Challenge...........

Hello Everyone

Well, how exciting is this?  This is the launch of a new challenge blog Addicted to Stamps and I was absolutely delighted to be asked by Kylie to become a member of the Design Team - check out the other awesome designers she has on the DT!!!

Here is my card for the first challenge which is Making your Mark which means that anything goes as long as markers (Copics, Promarkers etc) are used in the creation..

Close up of Faye's wings
This lovely little girl is Faye with Flower from Wild Rose Studio and she's been coloured using Letraset Flexmarkers and die cut with nesties.  Her wings were covered with Diamond Glaze and then had Glamour Dust sprinkled over.  The sentiment is from my Stampin Up Whimsical Words set.  The flower, leaf and border dies are all Memory Box.  Paper is from my stash. as was the ribbon and pearls.  A touch of Stickles was added to her dress and the flowers on the border.

Please pop over to the blog to see the wonderful inspiration posted by the members of the Design Team.  We really hope you are as excited as we are and look forward to you joining us on this new journey.

We also have a Facebook page so please go over and "like" us......... we will also post challenges and winners on our Facebook page.

Looking forward to seeing all of your wonderful creations.

Happy crafting.
