Sweet Stamps Monthly Challenge- Inking Stamps with Markers

 We are inking our stamps with Markers this month at Sweet Stamps. You have a month to join in- we'd love to see what you come up with!
  I inked up the shoe image with markers and stamped them randomly.  This is called the Depth of Field Windows- a technique I learned thru the Technique Junkies newsletter. I used Distress Markers in these colors: Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey and Broken China. My Coordinations cardstock that matched are Amaralys and Nassau Blue.
  I had the opportunity to play with the {New} Enamel Embossing powders. The Cranberry Wine is pink and has lots of sparkle : ) Ohh la la!  I also used Brownstone enamel EP on the key. This is such wonderful Embossing Powder to work with.
  I won the beautiful ribbon at 3 Girl Jam- it comes variegated- so pretty IRL.

Here are the supplies I used to create this card:
