Friday Focus

Some time ago I treated myself to some prismacolor pencils, had a little play and then put them away. Do you ever do that? I was so keen to get them too so I donn't know why I've left them hidden away!

Well time to begin to make amends with the new 'Make Your Mark' challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.

I've been so inspired by all the coloured card base cards at AAA Cards and LIM that I decided to use the new 'in colour' fresh fig card from Stampin Up.


I stamped and used clear embossing powder for the Uniko mandala. I then die cut the mandala to look as if it was stamped off the edge. I made my mark by adding white and silver prismacolor pencils in a repeating pattern.


I finished off by matting the rectangle onto white before adhering to a fresh fig card base. The greeting was stamped in fresh fig ink to match.

Supplies:
Stamps: Uniko, Marvellous Mehndi, sentiment from A Gift For You (retired)
Inks: SU, frsh fig; Versamark, clear
Embossing: Stampendous, clear
Crayons: Prismacolor premier

As I mentioned yesterday I've a house full of the Isle of Man part of my family, lots of noise, mess and cooking but not a lot of crafting going on at the moment. Still I plan to take loads of photos - at least of the village show if I can't persuade them to indulge me - and then have a bit of a scrapbooking fest to distract me from missing them once they've returned home.


 Thanks so much for your time today, I'm thrilled to have had your company for a while. And keep crafting!
