Stampin' Royalty #59

Today's recipe challenge from Stampin' Royalty is to "mark it up!" Use markers any way you want - colouring, watercolouring, drawing, sketching, you name it.

I took 6 colours and went to work on one of my favourite background stamps. Tres Chic! I randomly used the colours and mixed them all up to create and bold and colourful background. With Christmas and Valentines over you won't be seeing a whole lot of red from me anymore for awhile.

I used Stampin' 411's sketch to get this card off the ground. However I did stretch it a little instead of flipping it this time. The colours are from the dsp from the Sale-A-Bration pack called Ice Cream Parlour. The buttons and ribbon are from another set made to match. My sentiment is from the set On Your Birthday.

Without inking it up again, I huffed my stamp and stamped one more time to make a few extra squares to decorate a matching milk carton.

Now grab your markers and play along! Don't forget to check out the cards from the rest of the design team at Stampin' Royalty.
