Allsorts' 15th Birthday Challenge: Anything Goes

Happy Saturday and welcome! This week at Allsorts challenge we are having a bit of a special challenge for our 15th Birthday celebration! What an accomplishment! To celebrate we are having a super easy theme of "Anything Goes" to give everyone a chance to join us and to be entered into the prize drawing.

And speaking of prizes we have a super prize bundle to give away sponsored by the very generous Aall and Create. This bundle will be divided into 15 wonderful prizes one for each year of Allsorts challenges.

The challenge runs as ususal for one week and you may enter up to 3 times with a new creation for more chances to win.

Here is what I made. Of course I used this as an opportuny to share a card made with one two of my Aall and Create stamp sets which I purchased when they had their super sale last year. I had lots of fun creating this card!

I started out by making an inky background where I placed a stencil over my cardstock, spritzed with water then sprinkled some Brusho powders onto the card (and another spritz of water) then removed the stencil and let it dry before continuing.

There isn't much detail showing from the stencil I used which is also good because I have no idea what brand the stencil is. I don't usually keep packaging for the stencils and not all of them I remember the brands. Maybe it would be a good idea to use a permanent marker to write the name on the stencil...

The car from the set Don't Stop Me Now was stamped directly on the card and then on a scrap piece of card, colored with Zig Clean Color markers and a gray Faber Castell Polychromos pencil for some shading. Then fussy cut. For a little more interest I stamped an image from the Aall and Create set Clocks and Flowers as well as a couple sentiments from the same set.

I added some stickles glitter to the flowers and headlights on the car and attached one of the sentiments with staples for a little more interest.

Thanks so much for visiting and hope to see you over at the challenge blog!
