Mark’s Finest Papers

 I made this Matchbook Post-It Note Holder for a friend at work who so graciously thought of me one day while I was working and she was loafing around in a craft store.  I followed the tutorial HERE from Splitcoast Stampers Resource page but did have to do some tweaking since my note pad was a bit smaller than their measurements called for.
I used this brand new darling acrylic set from Marks Finest Papers for my focal image by stamping 1 on a post-it note, cutting it out and using it as a mask then stamped away to make it look like a garden full of poppies.  I used copics for coloring and flicked some of the darker green for blades of grass.
i gave this to my friend and she really liked it. Hope you do too.
