Your Card Has Been Marked !! by Doreen

Your Card Has Been Marked !!

Hello everyone I hope you are all well and welcome to my second blog of June.
Today I would like to share this rather randomly stamped card which was intentional of course.
Using the stamp set Making More Marks which I have to say is very versatile and leaves itself open to interpretation.

I think this card is definitely one for the men in our lives, nothing soppy in this is there ?? even my hubby likes it and he does not like cards and can't see the point in them. (How  rude).
Using Distress Oxide Inkpads colours I used are Crushed Olive, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade, using the bubble wrap and herringbone looking stamp I stamped some structure lines then added the squares randomly turning the stamp as you go.
I next used the Versafine Clair Nocturne to add not only straight lines but some string like images along with the exclamation marks  and some randomly stamped words.

Finally a few bits of Zentangle to enhance the shapes that the images of the stringy stamp gives us.

Here is another couple of cards using this set and the background of the final one also uses the Blank from the Slim Word Strip 1 

Thanks for looking in today

Love Doreen

  1. What a fabulous mix of stamps and words and the four colours work brilliantly together on the first Doreen, and I love the bright colours and clever use of all the background stamps on the 2nd and 3rd, and the added outside edge lines frame the 2nd card beautifully, and the added words look great on the 3rd. x


Thanks so much for leaving a comment - it brings a little ray of sunshine into our day when we know our work is appreciated!
