Anything Goes at Try It On Tuesdays

Hi Folks,

I hope you're all enjoying the long Bank Holiday and hopefully you've had some sunshine and if the sun didn't shine for you, hope you managed some crafting time!

It's Tuesday and time for another challenge at Try it on Tuesdays and its a nice easy one  - Anything Goes!
For my card I have used my new favourite stamp by Stampendous.  I have used it a lot for backgrounds, but it is a beautiful image, so centre stage this time!
I clear embossed onto white card and then blended Distress Inks to colour and then rubbed Perfect Pearls over the top of the flowers.  I used the same stamp on the background and stamped with Versamark on pink cardstock, then brushed with Perfect Pearls, which gives a gorgeous sheen. The sentiment is Tim Holtz, cut out on a Nesti label 18.

I hope you will join us at TioT for this challenge, which now runs for 2 weeks.

  I am entering this card into:
    Lollipop crafts - Flowers in Bloom
    Make It Monday - Anything Goes
    The Ribbon Reel - Photo Inspiration (my flower) plus die cut
    That Craft Place - Trees & Nature (Flowers)
    The Crafty Pad - Ribbon
    The Ribbon Girls - Use Ribbon or Lace
    Crafty Calendar - Flowers in Bloom
    Sweet Stamping - Favourite Stamp

Well that's it for me, off for a day out with DD - hope the weather stays fine!

I can see why you love this stamp so much Avril - it's beautiful, and very versatile. Love the soft colours and the wonderful sentiment.

Hope you've had a good Jubilee weekend - Sylvia xx
