Anything Goes card by Lynda

Hello, Lynda here to share with you my final project as the October guest designer fro SweetStamps.  It has been fabulous designing with their wonderful images this month and I thank you for your sweet comments on my projects!  Now for my project for the Anything Goes challenge.  For my project for the challenge I wanted to work with a silhouette image; so I chose the Horse image:

I stamped the image once and then again on scratch paper to create a mask.  I then used the mask over and over again to create this scene using this wonderful horses.  I colored them to match horses at the stables where my girls ride and take lessons.  The background is created using chalk and I really like the effect of an outdoor scene that it gives to my card.  I finished it off with a rubon from my stash.

There is still time for you to pull out some of your crafting supplies and take part in the Anything Goes challenge.  Be sure to link up your project on this blog post here.

Happy crafting....Lynda

Anything Goes- Autumn Blessings

Hi- Shelly here for the Anything Goes challenge this week.  I inked up the new AF4622 Leaves set, and the Pumpkins & sentiment from the AF4821 Fall Owls set for my card.
  I used a Technique Junkies Technique called K-Flip.  I wanted to use fall colors- and used spots and just rolled the color onto the brayer one at a time until the brayer was loaded with the colors. I used: Butterscotch, Orange, Rustic and Peapod. I colored the images with Copic Sketch Markers.
  The Braided border is a Piccolo Accent and is embossed with Brownstone Enamel EP.

Products from the store :

The Braided Border Piccolo is found HERE

This is my card (Roxie) for the Anything Goes challenge this week.  The leaves are from a newly released SweetStamps, set, you can check out all the other new sets and products on the store site - right index.

I love the fall leaves that are multi colored and had to create one of my own using Copic markers for coloring.  The background panel is a stencil design from SweetStamps and the sponging was done with Ranger Distress Inks.

The decorative edges and circles were cut with Spellbinder dies and the straight 1/16" and 1/8" borders were cut with Perfect Layers mini from Perfect Paper Crafting.  The regular sized rulers will do the same job and you can find them here at SweetStamps.

Paper: AC Cardstock - off white textured, unknown deep purple textured, Basic Grey - orange designer cardstock, Beckett Expressions - Radiance for images
