ASM - Anything Goes ....

.... Hello!!!  Hope you're all well.  It's time for our every popular Anything Goes challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  There's no specific colour or theme, you can go wild!  I've gone for a rainbow feel:

Stamps: Eureka Stamps Digi - Large Star; Lil Inkers - Shiny Happy; Stampin' Up! - Be the Star
Inks: Archival - Jet Black; Kaleidacolor - Pastel, Luau
Dies: Spellbinders - Postage Stamps (S4-348) #4 & #5
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Rainbow Handmade Paper; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella Brushes - Clear, Green

The main image is a fabulous digi image from Eureka Stamps (our sponsor this week).  I printed the image three times and cut one out with a postage stamp die.  I coloured all three with Copic markers, I added some sparkle to one of the big star images and then fussy cut them to layer.  I also cut out one of the little stars.  I layered the finished square onto a postage stamp of rainbow handmade paper.  Before attaching to the card, I added a sprinkle of little stars at the corner of the card and a simple, bold sentiment too.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of the rainbow paper and on the white panel stamped a multicoloured star and a bold sentiment.  This one has gone into my stash.

Brilliant detail - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's GemsBelow is a close up of the star to show the sparkle and to show the layers.  I don't often do layered cards as it really adds to the postage, but sometimes, it's just worth it for the effect!!  Hayley used this image a couple of weeks ago - it's such a versatile image and looks quite different on both cards.

Eureka Stamps, our sponsor, will give the winner of this week's challenge three digi images - they have a wonderful selection.

For more inspiration cards - check out what the rest of the team have made for our Anything Goes theme this week.

That's all for now.  Have fun, and I look forward to seeing all your creations.  Bye!

HI Deborah - I just had a peek at that cheesecake your daughter made and WOW! It's 6:30am right now, but cheesecake could be a breakfast food, right? Fabulous - and it sounds like the two of you had a most excellent day with your trip to the spa. Your card here: sooooo adorable! Rainbow colours make everyone happy and that little star, with its sweet expression, is a gem! Inspired and inspiring!
