ATSM #91 - Anything Goes

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a good week so far!

The theme this week at Addicted to Stamps and More is Anything Goes and our fabulous sponsor for the challenge is A Random Fan.

For my DT card, I've used a stencil on the background piece by inking with two colours of distress ink, place the stencil over the top and finely mist with water, lift the stencil and roll a roll of kitchen towel gently over the image. Finally, dry with heat tool. The flower and leaves were stamped with black Archival and coloured with DIs and aqua brush. The diecut "happy" is purple but looks almost black in the photo.

Don't forget to check out the fabulous DT inspiration over at the ATSM blog and we look forward to seeing your beautiful creations.

Will be linking my card to a few challenges:

Keep It Simple - #37 Stencil
Time Out - #3 Happy Birthday (with the optional twist of a masculine birthday card)
Virginia's View - Use a stencil
