Pen, Paint Pen or Marker

Good afternoon all, I'm so excited about this week's challenge over at Stampotique's Challenge Blog

Magda Polakow has asked us to use a Pen/Paint Pen or Marker on our projects and I have to tell you, I love using all of those on my creations. 
Spring has definitely been on my mind lately and I'm SO ready for some burst of heat and sunshine so this postcard was for a "Spring" swap that I joined

Come on over to the Stampotique Designers Blog and check out my postcard

For this postcard I used Stampotique Stamps -

Carol's Flower Large - By artist Janet Klein
Carol's Flower Small - By Janet Klein
Jasmin - By Artist Jo Capper-Sandon

In the background I used Tim Holtz distress paint and inks and I also used Tim's stencil called splatter
I added bits of tissue tape here and there
I used Tim's new Framework die called "lattice" to create my green pieces in the background. 

I simply stamped the Stampotique stamps onto separate white paper and colored everything with copic markers, I then cut them out and glued them onto my background
I drew the flower stems with Pitt Pen Black marker and then went over them again with a white gelli pen
I drew scratch marks here and there with the same two pens
I wrote my sentiment out and cut it out and glued it on

As always I love/cherish your comments and am so excited to get feedback.  Thanks for coming by and take care
