Its Anything Goes - Again!

Hi Folks,

After such a great response to the last challenge at Try it on Tuesday  and seeing all that fabulous work, we thought we would give you all another opportunity to show us your 'stuff' so its Anything Goes - Again!

For my piece I have used a Stampboard piece that was embossed with Moonglow EPs that I played with at the workshop a few weeks ago with Jill from The Stamp Man.  Jill showed us how to build up the various powders, which all have a fabulous glow to them, (which you can see better in the second photo, although this still doesn't do it justice)  and then stamp into the hot mix with a stamp that had been inked with Versamark.  The embossed background paper was also made with MoonShadow Inks, which are mica powders mixed in walnut ink - beautiful colours, and of course, had to have a little spend, so you will be seeing more of  these products!

The floral base to the card is my new fav. stamp (Stampendous) stamped with Bronze pigment ink and then brushed with a bronze mica powder.

The rest of the Team have made some fabulous creations, so please pop over and take a look.

We would love you to join us, but please do remember - The Rules - only 5 challenge entries including TioT's.

Hi Avril
Thanks so much for your lovely comments. I thought I'd caught up with everyone now but realised I'd not stopped by...how rude!!!!
I hope you had a good week in Northumberland. My DD is up there too on her school residential week and the weather up until day has been glorious looking at their photos.
Love all that you've been up too and this triple embossing is amazing.
Hugs Lisax
