Anything Goes Challenge at Bildmalarna Challenges

Hello Friends,

Today I want to show you what I, Stephanie, made for our Anything Goes Challenge.

I made a shaker card using Tosse and Friends on a log. I masked my image so that Tosse is sitting on the log next to his bunny friends.

I used my new McGill rose punches to make the rose and the McGill Pine punch. Here is a close up of the rose. It was pretty easy but took me a little while because I don’t have a fast setting glue. I definitely see why they suggest that, I would have had it put together in about 5 minutes instead of about 30 minutes … lol!  It was worth the wait though, don’t you agree?

The opening of my card was made using the Spellbinders new Wonky Squares, I used the large and second to the largest for the frame.  For my sentiment I used  SSD Beaded Ovals Stamps. The oval around the sentiment and the flowers in the corners are also part of this set. This new SSD set is awesome, be sure to check them out.

These stamp perfectly every time. This one ran a little but I used an index card mistakenly and was too lazy to stamp it again (bad me)!

I added Twinkle Jewels in my shaker and also placed one on top of the stamped flowers. The paper used is Basic Grey Olivia.

I colored my images with the following Copics:

  • Skin – E13, E11, E00, E000, E0000, R22, R21, R20
  • Clothes – R24, R22, R20, BG78, BG75, BG72
  • Hair – E35, E33, E53
  • Log – E59, E57, E25, E53
  • Bunnies – R20, C1, C0

I had so much fun with this that I decided to make a second one. I used the same images and papers just different colors. I also used some of the patterned paper for my flower. This set of punches is part of the roses punch set but can be purchased separately.
