anything goes. . . .

as long as you use Stamplorations stamps for a new challenge here:l



I have several stamps from Stamplorations now and decided to play with some of them.  Here is the first card I am entering in the challenge:


The California poppies stamp is so pretty and I colored it with Prismacolor pencils.  After die cutting it, I mounted it on a scalloped circle and then to a distress ink background created by smooshing the cardstock through several distress inks.  This panel was die cut with the Mama Elephant Femme Frames die.  I stamped the poppies twice on my card base and then assembled the layers.  Some vintage sequins and a Memory Box butterfly were used for embellishments.

Also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp anything goes challenge.  And, the Seize the Birthday with no toppings challenge.

Hope your weekend is a good one.

Joy, you've colored those poppies so beautifully and your distress ink background is awesome -- when I try smooshing card stock on distress inks, I don't end up with a background as pretty as yours!
