ASM - Anything Goes ....

... Hello, good evening!  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  This week it's the ever popular ANYTHING GOES challenge - whatever takes your fancy - clean, simple, layered, shabby - anything!  Our sponsor for this week's challenge is Lawn Fawn and the winner will get one set of stamps and one 6" × 6" pad of paper - both of the winner's choice.  So I had to make a card using my Lawn Fawn stamps:

Stamps: Lawn Fawn - Science of Love
Inks: Kaleidacolour - Fresh Greens; Versafine - Onyx Black, Olympia Green; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Dies: Lawn Fawn - Science of Love Dies
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Limelight; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear


I had such fun making this card.  I used the colour from the current Addicted to CAS challenge - ATCAS#59 where the cue word is GREEN.  I had to play along as greens/teals are my favourite colours.  I used the layout from Clean & Simple Stamping - FTL#3, they have gone back to the beginning and this is take two of the sketch.

I cut some design paper to cover the bottom third of the card - I really like this piece with lots of different patterns, shades of green and texture too.  I then stamped the chemistry glassware on white card, coloured each piece a different shade of green, cut them out with the matching die and adhered them to the card.  I added some sweet little hearts in all shades of green and finished the front with a greeting - love this one.  My degree is chemistry, so this set really appeals to the chemistry nerd in me :)  On the inside I cut a mat layer from another sheet of design paper and added a sentiment.  It's our wedding anniversary next month and I think this might be the card for Jonathan!

I really like the effect you get when using Wink of Stella - it's a subtle shimmer, but most photos don't really capture the shimmer, so I take close-ups, which are out of focus, as this seems to work.  Check out the glassware:
