A second week guesting at Addicted to Stamps and More.

Hello all!
As the post title says I'm back for a second week with a guest spot at Addicted to Stamps and More , where I was also lucky enough to be the Top Pick for their Photo Inspiration challenge!  The challenges are currently being sponsored by StampArt Designs and you can check out all the lovely images here . 
       
          The challenge theme this time is "Make your Mark" which is great as it means I could play with my trusty Copics.  I also wanted to tie this one in with the latest challenge over at Make It Colourful - the theme there being 'Brown, brown and brown' and I decided to be brave and go for the hard challenge which is to colour the whole image with brown and try and make it look like an old sepia photograph.
        For once I actually made note of which Copics I picked up (gasp!!) - E30, E33, E44, E47 which I used to colour this dapper, dancing dude from Make it Crafty.  The Silhouette Cameo was fired up to cut the raggedy frame, arrows and the sentiment and I inked up a page from my old dictionary, carefully picking the page with the definition "Dance" and highlighting it with the arrows!  Talk about attention to detail :)


Here's the full card - 


    I would also like to enter this into the challenges at Artistic Inspirations, The Crafty Bloggers, Crafty Cardmakers and moreThrough the CraftRoom Door, . 
       Why not head over to Addicted to Stamps and More and play along?  You could end up on their Wall of Fame and maybe do a guest spot too! Thanks for stopping by!

You already know how much I love your work, gal! As an "I can still tap dance" dancer I love this! Very Gene Kelly. Good luck in the drawing at TTCRD!

Hmmm....this is the second time I've seen this toe tapper used this week. He's gathering dust in my stash so perhaps I'll bring him out to play. I have never tried the monochromatic/sepia color scheme. I applaud you for tackling it Dawn. It looks perfect to me. Hugs!

You succeeded in making it look like a sepia photo. The newspaper background with the jagged edge looks great and what a fun image, coloured perfectly. Thanks for being such a fab Guest Designer x
