Time for another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More and this weeks theme is ” Make your Mark ” You are free to make a card of your choice as long as you use markers of some sort. As I have said before this is not my strong suit actually not sure if I have one , it’s always a tricky time when this challenge comes around and I tend to stay with something really easy as you will see with card.
I made the base with my Cameo of course , seems I am definitely addicted to that ! The flower and butterfly set are by Hero Arts which was stamped with black archival ink and then coloured with Copics and lashings of glossy accents over the top for shine and definition. There is also a lovely butterfly on the inside of the card nice but not worth a photo lol !Now that I have acquired a cat at my craft studio I’m finding it difficult to keep anything sticky and gooey out of Ziggy’s reach, I thought Bailey and Rosy where naughty but Ziggy can jump and climb and reach things I thought I had put out of harms way. The only place I think anything can be really safe here is if I put it in the fridge !!!!
We would love to see your lovely ” colouring in ” at Addicted to Stamps and More and if you need a little inspiration why not pop over and see what the gorgeous ladies have created for your viewing pleasure.
Right am off to tidy up my little studio as I will be hosting a mini crop here tomorrow ( any excuse for a knees up ) so I really need to do a bit of mopping.
Your card is totally gorgeous Marie and the colouring is fab, Annette xx
Just amazing, Marie! Those butterflies covered in glossy accents are awesome! Love, love, love it! xx
Really beautiful! Doesn’t look “simple” to me at all, I love the coloring, the stamp set and the use of those letters. Pretty pretty pretty!
Simply gorgeous Marie. Love the base you created on your Cameo and the colours you’ve used on your flowers and butterflies are stunning. Ziggy sounds like he’s getting into everything…….definitely a crafty cat eh? Thought your strong suit was gin! lol
A beautiful card Marie – the flowers and butterflies are gorgeous.
It looks terrific to me Marie and love the way you use your Cameo–always looks real classy.
Best Wishes Chrissie xx
It’s a good thing you are addicted to your Cameo Marie, I won’t ever get tired of seeing the amazing things you make with it. Your flowers and butterflies are beautifully coloured and I like the scrabble tile sentiment. Cats are wicked aren’t they? They have a way of looking at you as if you’ve really lowered standards and they don’t know why they put up with you! Vicky x
Just beautiful, Marie! I love it. Hope Ziggy is glue and glaze free x
wow this is amazing!!!!!
Fabulous colouring Marie, you do yourself an injustice, and the glossy accents make the colours so vibrant!
Gloriously delightful Marie. Those butterflies are so gorgeous and that beautiful filigree design to the card.
Absolutely gorgeous Marie. I don’t think you can use the excuse that colouring isn’t your strong suit – these flowers and butterflies are divine! x
I agree with Patrice! The colouring is superb! Very elegant card. Sue x
A GREAT shape and I love the colours, fab card, but then you always do a great card AND everything else 🙂
wow! This looks amazing! Love it!
Love the fancy shape and those scrabble tiles, a bootiful card! xx
Your card is gorgeous, love the shapes and fresh happy colours.
That’s a wonderful card.
Another stunner Marie! The colours you’ve used are so beautiful together and the glossy accents look gorgeous.
Such a beautiful card Marie, you did a great job with you Copics (not to mention Cameo, this is for all your cards! lol!)
Welcome to the world of co-existing with cats! lol!
I don’t remember you being this good at colouring in when we were kids, I don’t think you ever kept in the lines…didn’t we used to add vinegar to our felt tips when they ran out…not sure it worked and it made them smell awful…
As for this card, well it’s just stunning, I love the butterflies so much, they are really delicate, and the scrabble letters are a great addition. Well done sis X
Good luck trying to keep the cat out… have you thought of a drying box? If it doesn’t work for the card maybe you could use it for the cat lol! Your card is stunning and the added shine is perfect! LoVe it Marie!
Your flowers look like jewels Marie – gorgeous and shiney! – Jacqueline xx
Oooh Marie, I love this! Very creative indeed and those flowers and butterflies look stunning after being glossy accented – it really enhances the colours, and the scrabbled sentiment is very cool!
Enjoy your knees up Marie – I hope there will be no Gin being passed around!!!
Oh my gosh Marie – I would never has guessed its not your strong suit as the coloring is absolutely fabulous! I haven’t seen anything you’ve made yet that doesn’t totally impress me. Hugs D
Absolutely gorgeous, I love the shape and the vibrant colours
It’s amazing what you make with your cameo…love the ornate shape and the pretty flowers :0) Too funny about Ziggy but it would drive me nuts…probably why I’m not owned by a cat!!
Stunning card Misses. Looove the design.
Regards Florence x
Such fabulous detail, Marie. Always adore butterflies, how could we ever tire of such beauty. hugs, Donna
WOW! so vibrant and gorgeous!!

Been away though so a bit if an excuse there. Kath x
You’re making me lust after a cameo, naughty Marie. Those flowers and butterflies are vibrant and gorgeous too.
