Anything Goes at Let's Ink It Up!!

Well we're back from our Christmas break at Let's Ink It Up with a fab new challenge for you and this time around we've kept it easy, our theme is 'Anything Goes' . We also have a gorgeous new logo, do you like it??



Once again we have a fab sponsor and one lucky crafter will win a great prize


For my DT project this time, I decided to have a play with my trusty brayer and made this card


I've created a brayered scene with big & juicy ink pads and assorted stamps from artemio, Elusive images, Time to Stamp and Enchanted Inc.The background trees and foliage are stamped with the same blue/green inks and the ones in the foreground are stamped with black versafine. I've added some highlights with a white inkssentials pen.
The large butterfly is stamped on to fantasy film and layered up with silicone glue for a little dimension. The scene is matted and layered on to white then black card and I've added a sentiment stamped on a creative acrylic tag attached with black velvet ribbon.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
The Artistic Stamper: Things with Wings
Dutch Dare: Make a scene (use masking - I've used masking to create the hills)
Craft Your days Away: Anything goes
Sweet Stampin Challenge: Something different (using fantasy film)
Crafty Emma's Challenge: All creatures Great and Small
Aud Sentiments: Anything goes (2 word sentiment)
Flutter by Wednesday: Open challenge with butterfly, angel or fairy

Thanks for calling by, I hope you're going to get inky with us at Let's Ink It Up and join our 'Anything goes' challenge Don't forget no digistamps, we want to see you fab creations with your clear/rubber stamps!!
