a2z Scrapbooking - January Challenge - card 1

          
a2zscrapbooking January Challenge "Anything Goes"
  The new challenge this month is simple “Anything Goes” All you have to do is use any Hero Arts product on your project.
You can find all the rules HERE.

I'm also joining the stamp challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.You can find all the rules HERE.

I'm also joining the Time Out Challenge.
You can find all the rules HERE.

I'm also joining Card Mania Challenge. (#88 Layer It)
You can find all the rules HERE.
I created the background with Gelatos and lots of patience to watch the drips.  I worked with one color at a time to control the direction and length of the drip.  I embossed the small flower and fussy cut it to give the petals more dimension.  Finally, I finished off the card with a large gem (secret confession...it was an earring in another life that lost its mate and was rolling around in my stash for years.)

A Closer Look:


                                      Newsprint Flower Cling Stamp (Hero Arts)
                                              
Other Supplies: Gelatos (Faber-Castell),  Black Embossing Powder (Stampendous), Heat Gun (Ranger), Archival Jet Black Ink Pad (Ranger), Inhale Exhale Art Stamp Sheet Set (Sin City Stamps), black gem

Please be sure that your project contains at least one main Hero Arts product as the focal element.  You have until the last day of January to enter your project.  By entering you will have a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking Store. One lucky winner will be announced on the 7th of February!

Beautiful contrast between B&W flower and rainbow color background, and what great way to up-cycle the treasured ear ring!! Thanks for linking up to our Anything Goes challenge at a2z.
