ATSM Challenge #97 - MAKE YOUR MARK

Hi there everyone! How are you all?

Today we have a brand new challenge over at ATSM where we want you to Make your Mark.

What does this mean? Well, you can use markers, pencils, crayons, paints and brushes etc on your project. 

I have also used a slightly different interpretation of this challenge due to the fact that I am still away from home and have limited supplies with me right now. I have had to improvise and you will soon see how :)

Here is my DT card -

As I don't have any markers with me (like I usually like to use for this challenge), I decided I could 'Make my Mark' a different way.

I grabbed a household sponge that has a silver cover on it (it makes it into a scourer). I used it to create the dotty background on this card. I decided I was making a mark and therefore this technique was perfect for the challenge ;) The bottom panel was sponged with the same household sponge but I cut away the silver cover first.

The stamp set I have used is a free set from Indigo Blu that I received in a magazine. Unfortunately there is no name on this set so I can't tell you what it is.

The prize on offer is 3 digis!

Please pop on over to ATSM where you will find amazing inspiration from the DT!
