Hi friends!  Sandy here for my next March guest designer post.  This week is Sweet Stamps'
  Anything Goes challenge
 and the March monthly technique challenge is Coloring Stamps with Inks.
I enjoyed making cards for these challenges.

The first card is Anything Goes. I decided to do a masculine card. I never do enough "guy" cards so for me this a little challenging. I think simple is best so I went with a bunch of layering with mats.
For the coloring, I decided to use a neutral ink and then using Prismacolor pencils, I add just a quick touch of color. I don't think it is too fancy.

For my second card, I wanted to make a more feminine card. It was easier to do to, lol. I used Tim Holtz Distress Markers to color my stamp with ink.  I absolutely love the "line art" that this image has. I think these birds are fabulous. Definitely one of my favorite stamp!  To mat this great stamp, I used Martha Stewart punches.  I also used just the first line of the sentiment stamp on the front and then added the whole sentiment on the inside.
