Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #396

Happy New Year Friends! The design team at Addicted to Stamps and More! are back with a new challenge to start off 2021! 

For a "Make Your Mark" challenge, your entry MUST contain the use of anything that can make a mark (markers, paints, chalks, inks, watercolours, etc.)

Here's my card

For this clean and simple card, I created a circle mask using a Sizzix circle die and a post-it note. I inked up my Stampin' Up French Script stamp with Versafine Onyx Black ink. The plan was to ink up the inside circle area (inside the mask). Note, my French Script stamp is mounted on a wood block, so using my MISTI was out of the question - LOL! I learned with practice, that it was easiest to place the stamp facing up, ink it and then apply the white A2 panel, with the mask in place to the inked stamp. Before removing the mask, I stamped a few blooms using Technique Tuesday's Growing Wild stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I carefully removed the mask and stamped the sentiment, using Poppy Stamps' Peony Stems and Blossoms stamp set. I trimmed the white A2 panel slightly and matted with black cardstock. 

We'd love for you to join us this month. Making a mark on your card shouldn't be too hard - right?
