T is for Technique at Snarky Stampers


I'm over the moon being invited as a Guest Designer at Sisterhood of Snarky Sisters, it's an honour to be adopted!!! The challenge is T for Technique, it can be an old or a new one. I went for Pointillism or as Jennifer McGuire says, dots with a Marker.

I opted for some kind of mild snarkiness with misspelling too! I can admit that it was a spelling error from my side, but I do claim the freedom of the artist here :)


Challenges:
Addicted to stamps and more: Make your mark
Simon Says Stamp: Create with critters


Materials:
Stampabilities label stamp (the owl), Pro Markers, Distress ink for the sky, Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents, white Posca pen. Cuttlebug embossing folder, TH ruler for paper piercing, Exchangeables alphabet stamps, black Memento ink, white Sakura pen, black Fine Art pen.

Snark on! Be you, the world will adjust!

Love and hugs
Maarit

  33. What a fun and clever card Maarit! I love how you have colored it, I've not tried this technique as of yet, but it does look like fun. It is the sentiment that I love the most though, and even with the misspelled word, that makes it even better! Hugs, Brenda

  36. Your dotty owl looks so cool! Love how you blended the colors together, and I had to re-read your sentiment a couple times to find the spelling error. I would have never caught it if you didn't say anything! But, as you've said, it's all in the artist's interpretation - you TOTALLY meant to do that! LOL! Thanks for guesting with the Snarky Sisters!
