At this time of year a lot of challenges take a break giving design teams and crafters a break - however there are some who have time off work and so have more time than usual to craft. I'm one of those and so was quite happy when we decided at Craft room to still run a challenge this week. We've chosen to keep it simple and so the theme is - ANYTHING GOES! This is the card I made - I really enjoyed having a play with my inks and stamps and creating just what a fancied.
I created a masterboard using a technique from Craft Stamper magazine using gesso spritzed with a mist made from distress re-inkers and a little perfect pearls powder, then added bead gel and stamped images. The main images are both Crafty Individuals stamped over more spritzed distress inks and I've covered the sentiments panel with crackle glaze (which has made it curl - oops!). I used Tim Holtz masks and my distress re-inker mist on the base card. Go on over to the Craft-Room Challenge site to check out the brilliant inspiration from the rest of the team.
The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge has an Anything Goes theme so I'm sharing this there too - and I've used 'Buttons', 'Flowers' and 'Mist' from Sir Stampalots' Bingo challenge.
I hope you've enjoyed the festive period and that maybe Santa was kind enough to bring you some new crafty goodies to play with. I look forward to visiting to see your creations, and wish everyone a very Happy New Year...Esther xx
