Cards in Envy - Anything Goes

Anything Goes is the theme over at Cards in Envy Challenges this fortnight as long as your card is a A2 (4.5" x 5.5") in size.  My card is definitely a mixed media project and a mix of leftovers this fortnight.

I had a few left over bits and pieces from other projects lying around on my desk so I brought them all together with a Gelato Water Color Stamped Background (Chevron like Design) and the main Beauty in All Things stamp (both from Unity) to create my card.




My background was done on a white piece of cardstock and I simply colored the stamp with various colors of my Gelatos from Faber Castel/Design Memory Craft, spritzed with a little water and stamped.  I also stamped the Beauty in All Things stamp on white card with black archival ink and then used my Gelatos and my waterbrush to color in the background and the flowers.

My butterfly was a left over collage image from Altered Pages, my die cut flowers were cut using up the last pieces of some papers I made using paper towel I had been sopping up my art inks and paints with (see my last project).  The punched flower border strips were cut from Robin's Nest Aquamarine Sorbet Glittler Papers, the purple ribbon loop border was punched from another Robin's Nest Paper - Distressed Plum to coordinate with my flowers and colors in the background.  I used a Dew Drop (also from the Robin's Nest) as the flower center for my larger die cut flower.  My leaves were hand cut and die cut using other paper scraps I had on my desk.

Be sure to pop over to the Cards in Envy Blog for more great inspiration and I hope to see you playing along.
