New England Stamper: Marker Challenge

July 14, 2010

Marker Challenge

I hosted the Spicy Supply Challenge on Gingersnaps today and this month we're using markers.

I'm not in a coloring phase right now, so I figured I'd make a background using markers instead. I chose Spritzed Stone from TJs Dec 09 newsletter. It involves scribbling Copic markers onto acetate, spritzing it with alcohol and pressing glossy paper onto to it. I made another card with it a couple of months ago.

I used various shades of blue to create this background - I need cool colors in this oppressive summer heat! The main image is from Crafty Individuals and the sentiment from a retired SU hostess set.

Okay, off to walk the dog and then spend the day with friends. Lunch and a movie in air conditioning sound good to me!

Happy crafting!

Ali, this is so, so gorgeous! It's close to 100 degrees here, but your lovely blues are the perfect remedy for the heat.
