Make Your Mark @ATSM

Welcome back to my late night post for the brand new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More. Our first challenge of 2015 is- 

MAKE YOUR MARK

So lots of scope there! For my DT card I also took inspiration from a couple of other challenges and came up with this.


I started with the idea from Less is More where their challenge is OL with the theme of New Beginnings. I was slightly stumped I must say by the stamps available  to me then I eventually went with an old favourite, my MB Calm Countryside die and a MB Country Landscape one.
I cut the Calm Countryside from my base card then cut part of the Landscape die from the waste to show one house and a couple of trees. I inked the sky with DIs and coloured the trees, house and grass in Copics, adding a little path. I added a bit of colour to the clouds to give them a little definition and stamped a congratulations on the base card. I then replaced all the little bits to create a OL card.
I think Nich might be asking for a New Home card soon as one of her friends is hoping to move house so this should suit.

This week we are sponsored by


who are offering a 20$ gift certificate, so that's a fantastic incentive to have a go and join in.

I shall also enter the following challenges -

Allsorts - New and Cute
The Male Room - New Beginnings

OK, that's about it, hop over to the main site and check out the rest of the team's fab inspiration and meet the newbies on the block as well as say hi to the oldies.
