For this challenge we are having an ANYTHING GOES which we all love to do! I was in an inky autumn mood having found my non stick sheet to play on so first I started with distress stains in wild honey and forest moss adding them to the sheet and spraying with a little bot of iridescent pink cosmic shimmer to mix them up a bit more then plonked a piece of card down, gave it a swoosh and lifted up and dried. I then stamped the harlequin stamp (hero arts) down the side and embossed with moonglow fiddlehead fern blue green and added black ink around the edges.
I stamped the ain image twice, once on a background made with distress inks in spiced marmalade, mustard seed and vintage photo then again on one made with the iridescent pink cosmic shimmer, cut the pink one out and placed it over the distress one. The image is by lost coast designs. Added a couple of flowers from wild orchid and punched leaves out of starburst stains gumbo gator olive and stamped Spirit sentiment (from ebay) All inks and powders are from The Stampman (who are currently building a new shop site)
