This is my first post as a TIME OUT DT member and I couldn't be more happy to talk about the challenge and our fabulous guest designer. The challenge at TIME OUT this week is to "Make Your Mark" - this means that you need to use any kind of marker on your project - it can be Copics, water colours, chalks or any other marker. There is also an optional twist of using a monochrome colour palette which is sponsored by Uniko Studios.
GD this week is absolutely amazing - Marika of Me and Mini Me

colouring skills so please stop by her blog to check out her fabulous creations
- you won't be disappointed!
Here's my take on the challenge:
The card that I made this week was for some friends in Austria. We spent a week in Tuscany with them earlier this summer, and while we were there, we got into quite a detailed discussion about our local birds. I wanted to send them a card that highlighted our Canadian birds so I used the Stamplorations "The Birds and the Blooms"to stamp each of the birds (masked to fit the film strip). I coloured the birds with Copics - I did "customize" the hummingbird to make it a ruby-throated hummingbird (our local friend!). I then added some white on white die cuts to create the scene using the Pretty Pink Posh film strip die and some Memory Box branches dies. I finished off with an Altenew sentiment heat embossed in Liquid Platinum.
I repeated the card but I used the "blooms" from the set for the second card:
