Anything but ink on the catwalk at FSC

Hi folks, hope you're having a good weekend. We're having soooooo much rain here lately I think I should be building an ark not making cards lol. Anyway enough about the rain, its time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time our theme is 'Anything but ink' chosen by my lovely teamie Laura. As always our lucky winner will receive a fab prize from our generous sponsor Flonzcraft so grab your stamps (no digis allowed!) and join us but remember to stamp with something other than ink! Now I had to rack my brain a bit for this one but decided to try stamping with acrylic paint for my project.

I've used a shaped card blank from Craft Work Cards and used PanPastels to create the background. The stamps are from the Wild Meadow themeplate from Chocolate Baroque and I used the gorgeous new Maimeri Acryic paints to stamp with, they come in the most scrummy metallic colours and as they are so rich and buttery they stamp beautifully. I wasn't sure how this would work as the stamps are very detailed but I'm quite pleased with the result.

I've edged the card with more Maimeri Acrylic, in bronze which is my absolute favourite colour.I've added some chocolate brown seam binding, a couple of metal leaf charms and some little paper flowers. 
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Deep Ocean: button it up
LEJ Designs: anything goes
Moving along with the times: No designer papers
Really Reasonable Ribbon: autumn leaves plus ribbon
Totally papercrafts: button it up
Wags'n'Whiskers: fall colours

Well my blogs going to be a hive of activity today as I'll be back later with projects for SplodgeAway and Premium Craft Brands so hopefully blogger will play nicely and post them as I've got a busy day lined up at home too.
Thanks so much for popping by, if you've got a minute have a look here and check out the gorgeous projects created by my talented teamies
