Lovely Day ATC's

HAPPY SPRING EVERYONE!!! The Artistic Outpost Design Team just held it's monthly Blog Hop!!! Our challenge was to use the Lovely Day Stamp Set. I made this set of ATC's using the flower and sentiment images.
I decided to finally bust out the Distress Markers and see what these babies could really do, and I am not disappointed! I used them on all the stamp images directly, then stamped onto manila ATC sized paper. I inked the blue background as well, but the markers resisted the ink, so there was no blending.  I spritzed with water to get the watercolor look. I also stitched on the top border before stamping and heat embossing my sentiment. The eggs are from the Birds of a Feather Stamp Set.  
I hope you get the chance to stamp soon! Have a wonderful weekend.
