Anything goes at Fashionable Stamping challenges

Hello folks, the last two weeks have whizzed past in the blink of an eye and its time for a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping challenges already! This time around our theme is 'Anything goes' although we are a stamping challenge so we do want to see stamping as the main focus of your project. As always there's a fab prize of a $20 voucher from our regular sponsor Flonzcraft up for grabs so I hope you're going to ink up those stamps and play along.

My card was inspired by my lovely Chocolate Baroque teamie Judith (pop over to her blog here to check out her beautiful artwork) who had been playing with inks and her gelli plate. I can never resist a new technique so I got out my Memento Inks, dusted off my gelli plate and brayer and got to work. I used shades of green ink initially, brayered the ink on for even coverage. I then created some texture with a sheet of crumpled copier paper. I stamped the leaves (from Heartfelt Creations) using Memento Inks in Rhubarb Stalk, Tangelo, Canteloupe,, Rich Cocoa and Bamboo Leaves and then took a print. I trimmed the paper and inked the edges with more Bamboo Leaves memento ink and matted it on kraft and then dark brown cardstock. The sentiment is also from Heartfelt Creations,, stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, to finish off i've added seam binding, string, a button and a twine bow.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Allsorts: autumn
Crafting by Design: anything goes
Kitty Bee Designs: fall colours
That's Crafty : Keep it simple
