Anything Goes - Sweet Stampin' DT

Good morning my dears,

I hope you all had a great Christmas and that Santa brought you more crafty goodies than he did me (which is none, lol). I'm sure the old fella is going senile ;-)

Anyways, we have a new challenge for you over at Sweet Stampin', and the theme is Anything Goes. A nice easy one for you all while you're recovering from the Christmas madness! Maybe you want to have a play with some new crafty stash, in which case, why not come and share it with us? (Providing you use a stamp somewhere, of course...)

I took the opportunity to use some of the Tim Holtz stamps I picked up at Art From the Heart when I went there for the workshops. Loooooove these stamps so much! I decided to go for a chalkboard look, and heat-embossed the design onto black card with white embossing powder.

Everything except the corners is TH. The corners were originally bright silver, but I coloured them gold with a leafing pen, then distressed them a little with black ink.

Et voilà!

Your turn folks!

In other news, I am just about back on my feet again, so will likely come and visit you all again from Sunday... Today we're supposed to be decorating the bathroom, so I'll see you all tomorrow if we get done! lol.

Have an excellent weekend!
