CFC87--Make Your Mark

Happy Friday!  What a week it's been.  I'm definitely in need of some time to craft away my stress this weekend.  Anyone else with me?

I hope you'll make some time for a new CAS-ual Fridays challenge!  Your assignment this week:  use markers on your clean and simple creation.  Easy peasy!

I chose a small image from a CAS-ual Fridays Stamps set, Casual Elegance, stamping it repeatedly to make a floral border.  I used several shades of green and turquoise Copic markers to color the flowers in a gradient, which came out looking a bit like stained glass.

On a turquoise card base, I heat embossed the sentiment in white, then stamped and colored three more flowers, adding green gems to the centers.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Hawaiian Shores), WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps (Casual Elegance)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black), Versamark, Copic markers
Tool:  We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
Accessories:  Filigree (embossing powder), rhinestones

Pay a visit to the CAS-ual Fridays blog to see more inspiration from the Girl Fridays, then break out those markers!

Have a great start to your weekend!
