Amusing Challenge – Anything Goes

Last week’s challenge was to use a tag on a card…I thought that was a pretty easy challenge but we only had a few players.  Hopefully this week’s Anything Goes Amusing Challenge will be different!  Throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.  I will have a Weekly Winner and at the end of the month, those 4-5 winners will go into a prize drawing for one lucky Grand Prize winner.   September’s winner will receive this brand new (but retired) A Muse Studio stamp set called:  Avian Notes

Leaves are starting to drop here but still, I hate to say good bye to summer.  Despite that feeling, I did have fun with this card.  I watercolored the assorted leaves that came in the Hey Foxy stamp set (my favorite part of the set!!) and used some of the new 4 mm French Roast sequins from A Muse Studio.  Did you see the chance to win a free bag of them here?!?  Another great thing about this card is how beautifully amuse studio cardstock looks once it’s been embossed and then sanded…isn’t it wonderful?

These watery flowers make me even sadder to see summer go!  I had an idea to stamp with A Muse Studio inks on wet watercolor paper.  The inks ran a bit and with an extra spritz from my spray bottle, flowed even more.  I did end up over stamping once more with the Berry ink to make the flowers appear a bit bolder.  I love this card!!  The beautiful sentiment is white embossed to really make it pop.

  5. Your cards are very pretty! I too am sad to see Summer go. All the hustle and bustle of school gets quite busy when Summer is over.

  6. I don’t know how I missed this challenge…it looks like it was so much fun! I do subscribe to your e-mails, so I must have just overlooked it.
