613 Avenue Create #119-Anything Goes-Option: Create Your Own Challenge

Hi, Crafty Friends! We have a different Create Your Own Challenge Twist to our Anything Goes Challenge this week.  Just use this chart:


Our sponsors this week are Melonheadz Illustrations, Scrapper's Delights and Di's Digi Stamps.  I used an image from Melonheadz Polly Put the Kettle On Combo Pack. This is a delightful tea inspired digi set. I'll be using the other images for sure since I have a thing for tea - LOL!

I made a square card for encouragement (event). My trends are Watercolor, Stencils and Sequins. Using a stencil and water color paper, I sponged distress ink over the stencil. Then I lightly sprayed water through the stencil. I blotted the paper with a paper towel before removing the stencil, after which I used a heat tool to dry the paper. I cut it down to fit my 5x5 card front. The image is colored with Spectrum Noirs and cut with a scalloped oval Nestie die. I inked the edges of the die before popping it up on the card front. The sentiment (also popped up) is from the $1 bin at Michaels - I've had it for years. The sequins are from my stash.

I'm entering these challenges:  Brown Sugar Challenge #141 - Distress; Sister Act Challenge #101 - Anything Goes; and CCEE Stampers 1515 - Stencils.

I hope you find some time to craft today :)
