Hi everyone. I tried a different way of using markers for this card. Nothing new, just new to me. I used an acrylic block, scribbled with five different distress markers starting with the lightest colour at the bottom, misted with water and then pressed mixed media paper on top. I'm really happy with the background. To me, it looked tropical, so I stamped a silhouette palm leaf on top.
This is my reminder card for CAS Mix Up July Challenge - Markers. The challenge is open all month, so there's lots of time to play along. We already have lots of amazing entries. Come join in the fun!
Since this has a tropical feel to it, I'm entering it into The Heart's Desire Challenge #2 - photo inspiration and/or sketch.
I used the photo inspiration, picking up on the tropical feel. This challenge was just started recently by The Heart's Desire, an on-line stamp supply retailer. My good friend, Toni (Frankie Helps Craft) is on the Design Team. I was just blown away by the gorgeous card she made for this challenge ... along with all the other Design Team cards --- just so much wonderful inspiration. I had to play along.
And I'm also playing along at Virginia's View Challenge #22 (Summer Challenge) - All About Colors.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
