Addicted to Stamps and More #237

It's 'Make Your Mark' week at Addicted to Stamps and More.  I just reread the rules for this challenge and it says you can use just about anything to make your card.  If you have questions, check the tab at the top of the blog for the rules of each of the challenges.

I was inspired to buy this stamp and make this card by Jill Foster from Penny Black.  You can see her YouTube video here.  I placed the stamp in my MISTI and colored the individual sections  of the stamp with Distress Markers.  After each color I misted the stamp and then moved some of the color around with a brush.  I kept coloring and stamping until I liked the result.  I should have stopped there but went on to paint the background and that didn't quite go as I would have liked but I pressed on and splattered with Black Soot and white acrylic paint.

The Linky is now open so can we count on you to enter a card?  You can find inspiration from the Design Team on the Addicted to Stamps and More blog.

I really like this Bobby, everytime I see one of these PB stamps I have itchy fingers and end up looking to buy. So far I've not succumbed to purchasing yet but it's getting harder to resist! :)

Wow, Bobby, what a stunning card ... you've showcased this colour/spritz/repeat technique so beautifully! Seems as though I'm looking through a window at that gorgeous berry sprig ... such a fantastic sense of depth! Hugs, Anita :)
