Anything Goes at Crafting By Design

I can't believe we are at the start of another month - July!  Again our monthly challenge at Crafting By Designs is Anything Goes.

Our sponsors this month our A Day for Daisies and Ike's Art

For my card I chose to work with the digital stamp Talking To the Moon from A Day for Daisies.

I really like Zentangle work and decided to base my design on that. It is very relaxing to doodle!
I added diecuts, flowers and gems to finish.

Do come and join in. We have some fabulous projects from the Design Team this month.

Challenges I am entering:

Tuesday Throwdown - Fairies and Fantasy

Pretty in Purple

I haven't had chance to play with some of newer stamps for ages. So this weekend I got out my Penny Black "Patisserie"set and watercolour pens.

If you are using water and ink make sure you use an archive ink pad so that the ink doesn't run when water is added. 

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge - Hand Coloured Image
