The title of this post sums up how I have been feeling about Aquamarkers, but not wanting to be beaten by a pack of pens I decided to do battle with them once and for all. And do you know what? Unlike all the other times I have tried to use them, with very poor results, today they behaved perfectly! I'm so glad I didn't consign them to the dust cupboard.

I've used a beautiful Sweet Pea stamp "Kimono Butterfly Mermaid" (thank you Brenda!), she's stamped in Stazon onto 140lbs cotman watercolour paper. The papers are from a free pad with a recent issue of Papercraft Essentials and the sentiment is from Crafty Individuals.

I would like to enter this card into the current challenge at One Stitch at a Time where the theme is "Things with Wings".

Thank you for visiting!

Hugs, Clare xx

Nothing wrong with your card Clare, beautifully coloured imo. Don't use my aquamarkers much, need to go onto my long to do list!
