Inking stamps with markers

CCEE 1233 asked us to use markers direct to our rubber stamp. I made five clean and simple cards, inking up the Lindsay Mason script robin stamp with red and brown whispers strokes markers by sugarloaf and then inking up the 'Christmas cheer' sentiment on the large Papermania 'a Christmas carol' stamp with the brown marker and stamping.

I made five cards because I sell packs of 5 nearer to Christmas to raise funds for Tearfund.

The stamping isn't blurred - it's the iPad photo (still trying to get used to using this as my camera is broken).

These are also for:

Stampotique 262: one layer card (sorry I haven't used a Stampotique stamp this time)
Top tip Tuesday 83: one layer card
Art impressions 77: there's only one layer
One layer Wednesday 102: make a card inspired by your favourite school subject - nature
Totally stampalicious: CAS - clean and simple
Tanda teaser 200: CAS
Crafty boots: tweet tweet
Creative Belli 150: winged things (I've had both stamps for quite a long time and haven't used them recently)
Penny Black and more at Allsorts August: whiskers and/or wings
