WMSFC - Anything Goes ....

....  Hello again, I'm back with our new challenge for Waltzingmouse Fanatics.  For the next couple of weeks our theme is ANYTHING GOES and we hope to see lots and lots of submissions.  The only requirement is to use at least one Waltzingmouse stamp, sentiment or digi image.  Here's my card:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Rescue Remedies Additions, Very Vintage Labels No 10
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise; Versamark
Dies: Spellbinders - Labels 10 (S5-022) #4, 5 & 6, Pinking Circles Sm (S4-172) #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Pickled Pear; Clear Embossing Powder; SU Marker - Tempting Turquoise; Gems

I used the colours from Colour Me! - CMCC#26 and from CAS - Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#80 we have to make a shaped card - not square or rectangular.  I decided to use my Spellbinders Labels 10 dies as I knew I had some fabulous stamps from Waltzingmouse that coordinated perfectly. 

First I cut the card base into shape using the largest die; I let the die overhang the top so that there is a join (You can see the fold on the photo of the card's inside).  Next I used the same die to cut a panel of designer paper and adhered it to the card base.  I inked up the frame first with Versamark and then Chocolate Chip so that I was able to emboss the image with clear powder, then I cut it out with the matching die.  I used my SU marker to add a touch of turquoise around the edge of the frame and then attached it to the card.  I did stamp the sentiment directly into the frame, but sadly got finger smudge marks on it, so I had to die cut a circle and stamp the sentiment again.  I added some yellow to the edge to make it stand out.  On the inside I simple cut a mat of design paper and on the white card stamped a dotty border.

I realised after I'd finished the card that it is not as clean and simple as the CAS - Colour & Sketch team might want!  Sorry ladies!!!  The inside is perfectly CAS :)))  And that's all from me today.  I plan to spend the rest of the day editing photos.  Last night Jonathan, Kathryn and I went to a photo shoot at Birdsong Photography.  We took photos of two of our favourite models - Jasmine and Onikaa - both beautiful women and both totally mad!  It was such fun!!  Bye for now.

The daffodil really brightens up the card and focuses attention on the sentiment. Thanks for sharing your card with us at CAS - Colours and Sketches.

Hi Deborah

This is a very pretty card and I like the special shape and the colours. I think they look very good together.

Yes, the German match against Brazil was fantastic and also unbelievable. Hopefully they will play another good match on Sunday!

Kind regards
