DV 98 Anything Goes

We have a brand new sponsor over at Dream Valley this time, Gerda Steiner Designs, and our challenge is a nice easy one to kick off our year there, Anything Goes.

DV 98 Anything Goes

For my card I stamped a Woodware Craft Collection stamp, Going to Seed, with black versafine. I then had my first foray into Brushos. Have to say I struggled to see where the pigment had landed and actually had a couple of completely disastrous attempts before this one, as I had put way too much pigment down and when I spritzed it, it looked like an explosion in a paint factory. I think perhaps that this image was too dark for it to show up, so next time I might attempt to do the brusho thing first and stamp my image later.

My sentiment is from a Paper Artsy JOFY set, which has a lot of useful words to make your own phrases, and my insects are stamped and cut with an Impression Obsession die and stamp set and coloured with copics. I added Ice Stickles to all the insects wings except the little ladybird. This is meant to look like Spring is springing, which I dearly wish it was!
