Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #33 - Anything Goes

Good morning, and welcome back! See, I told you I had more in store for you this week! Today I'm here with the new Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge and it's "Anything Goes"! Easy enough, right? Since I am on a roll with Halloween cards, I decided to continue having fun! I am using one of the fabulous new images just released last week from the Lil Haunts 2 collection. She is called Mummie Christina, and I LOVE that she is still wearing her glasses, even after mummification! lol You can find her here, along with all her spooky pals, in the Tickled Pink Stamps store. I have cut out just her upper torso using my Classic Circle Nesties, stamped a marble effect around the edges of my image, and matted that on a Lacey Circle Nestie in Pumpkin Pie. I also used my new Ribbon Banners Shapeabilities for the sentiment, which is stamped onto Old Olive using Tuxedo Black ink from Memento. I had a lot of fun embellishing this and used some rolled gauze from Target which I cut in strips and distressed a bit with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I used Old Paper and Vintage Photo. The other items are pretty standard for me: flowers, flourish, pins, Dew Drops, oh, and a big eyeball wrapped "candy" that is a sticker from Halloween queen Martha Stewart.

My layout is August's sketch from Graphicat Sketches. This is my first time playing along over there, but it I know I'll be back every month! Cheri has her own shop as well, Graphicat Designs, and I think I may need to go shopping soon... The woman has a wicked sense of humor and her sentiments are a hoot! Anyway, back to my card - I loved the sketch so decided to use it. Simple as that. Oh, and plus they have awesome prizes up for grabs so why wouldn't I want in on that?! Haha! Go check it out for yourself!

You will also want to head over to the Tickled Pink Challenge blog and see what amazing creations the rest of the {PINK} challenge ladies have come up with! Be sure to link up your own project too while you're there; you have all week to play along. Just remember that you need to use an image from one of the Tickled Pink Stamps collections in order to participate and to be eligible for the wonderful prize (1 rubber or 2 digital stamps of your choice). These include Lil Lolitas and Lil Lads, Lil Pinkettes, Lil Pets, and Cherrie.

Thanks for dropping in and I hope you'll leave a comment on my project. It's always nice to hear what everyone's favorite part of my work is. Have a fantastic day and enjoy!
