Scribble Card

Morning everyone.

This weeks Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge is Challenge #37 Make Your Mark.  Your project can be anything as long as your use your markers.  For full details of the challenge and to see the wonderful inspirational pieces by the DT please click on the link above.

Here is my little DT project for this week.  When I made this, it reminded me of times when there was no internet, no on-line shopping and not a great deal of craft stash on the market.  My how times have changed!


All I have done is “scribbled” the colours onto coated card stock using my jumbo felt pens.  I then used a stencil (which is about 20 years old and cost 50p from a well known high street stationers) to draw on the numbers and letters, again using jumbos.  I gave everything a quick spray of fixative and painted on some white lines and some black dots using some craft paint.

We hope you will be able to join in the challenge and look forward to seeing your projects.

Thank you to everyone who has recently left comments on both of my blogs.  They are very much appreciated.

Happy Crafting.

  1. You are wise to hang on to your crafty stash & tools. I have a habit of giving things away if I don’t use them. And then sometimes I go looking for them at some point. Great ‘scribble’ design ! Cheers, Shirleyx


  2. Hi Florence, what a great card!! I would have never thought of that, I love the look. This technique would be really good for teenager birthday card I think.


  3. What a great bold and graphic design Florence. Love the white highlights, it really makes the letters and numbers pop! Xx


  4. Good morning PF, what a crazy clever card ! You and your jumbo markers certainly know how to make a card or two ! I would never have thought of that in a million years and for once I agree with Mrs B the white highlights do really make it pop !

  6. This is such a festive card. I’ll have to admit…I have a stash of old stencils too. Talk about hoarding. Very clever of you to spray seal it so you could add the highlights! Regards…G


  7. This is fantastic! And isn’t it nice to know that you don’t have to depend on all the bells and whistles to make a fantastic card!


  8. Great fun card, Florence! The black letters really pop against the lovely bright colours and I like how you highlighted them with white.
