So...back to the reason you came to visit me. This week at Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #61 is our ever popular ANYTHING GOES! That's right - any theme, any color, any layout, any occasion or reason - a card, a 3D project, a scrapbook page that you've stamped on or created digitally - Anything Goes! We also have a new sponsor for the month of September - The Paper Nest Dolls - who is offering a very nice prize (check out the challenge site HERE to get more details).
I have a card that I made for my Aunt using a darling Paper Nest Dolls image (colored with copic markers) for my DT contribution to ATSM#61 Anything Goes. I'm also entering this card in the Seize the Birthday "Anything Goes" challenge. Drum roll please....
Okay - so it might seem as if this card was made for a kid, but my Aunt actually loves clowns and she's still a big giggly kid at heart - so I think she will like it. One of my new purchases in the Archivers Store in the Mall of America (first time I had ever been there, or to an Archivers store) was some Stickles glitter glue. This stuff is so much fun!! Wish I had bought a few more colors. I added a glimmer red dot from Close to My Heart on the clown's nose that fit just perfectly. The papers are some retired DSP from my Stampin Up stash (I knew someday I'd have the perfect reason to use them again). Usually I do pick my papers first but this time I just started coloring. If I had picked out the papers before I colored the image I would have colored the coat blue and the balloon red. The sentiments on the front and inside are both from Stampin Up! I especially love the one on the inside - take a look:
Well that's enough from me today. I'm sure that you would like to go see what the other lovely ladies on the ATSM design team have made for your inspiration - they are awesome as usual. I hope to see your entry in our challenge this week - so go get crafty! Til next time... hugs and happy crafting. D
