My time is not my own at the moment so most of my cards are being made a week or two in advance. That means that I can't really join in with the weekly challenges as I would normally, but at Make My Monday the team are taking a break so we have a month to create something for the latest challenge - to make a card using yellow, bright green and fuchsia. I notice that the challenge at Addicted to Stamps is to use markers too so my card fits in there too. Come and have a look:
Inky backgrounds like this are such fun and quick and easy too: I took three markers (Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade and Melon Mambo) and scribbled in strips onto an acrylic block, spritzed it with water and stamped into onto my card stock.
I added butterflies die cut with my Beautiful Wings embosslits die, using colours to match the background. Those useful markers came in handy again to colour some white bakers twine to match the butterflies. TIP: Laying the twine on the matching ink pad while colouring it with the marker gives better coverage, quicker.
I liked the idea of stamping the sentiment in Melon Mambo too - it looks as if everything is changing colour as your eye travels up.
What you'll need to make this card:

Ink: Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo
Card stock: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo

My daughter has a job at a hotel and she's often asked to waitress at weddings and other events. Yesterday, when I asked her how it had gone at the weekend, she told me it had all been fine but that she'd come to one table just as someone was finishing an anecdote and hadn't been able to get it out of her mind. This is what she heard: "... and that's when the lead singer fell face first onto the tennis court with jelly all over his face!" I think I'd have had to ask!
See you tomorrow,
