[DYSU] Challenge #57 - Anything Goes

Hello everyone! It's Thursday and this week has been one crazy one. When Monday started, I had no idea I would be in the OR. But some symptoms came up on Monday night and between all the different doctor's offices and such, I was pretty lucky to get last minute appointments everywhere. The CT scan confirmed that I have a kidney stone which explains the pains and other symptoms that were pretty indicative of kidney stones. So today I'll be getting one removed. If you could keep me in your thoughts and prayers, I would super grateful!

In the meantime, this week at DYSU we have the best challenge Anything Goes. This is one of those fun challenges where everyone has free reign to create to their heart's content. I almost feel like these are the most challenging challenge, because I love so many things. With other challenges usually I have something to steer me down a path.

Here is a card using some stamps from The Craft's Meow. I have made a stained glass window that is suppose to glow.

Stamps: (Nina B Designs - Simply Delightful) The Craft's Meow
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - White, Smokey Shadow) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin - No. 3 Chili Powder, No. 4 Lemon Drop, No. 5 Chicken Feed, No. 6 Stick Candy, No. 7 Seed Packet, No. 9 Spice Tin) Ranger; (Versamark, Memento - London Fog) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Detailed Embossing Powder - Black) Ranger; (Embossing Powder - White) Stamp 'n Stuff; (Rhinestones) Recollection

I'll let you in on a secret (and you may think me insane), but I colored each of those little sections in the doily with a tiny brush and Jenni Bowlin inks. I won't tell you how long it took, but it was like a nice therapeutic way to zone out and forget the real world stress for a bit. Painting each pane little by little was a really great experience - it was like tickling the stain glass out of this boring black and white doily.

This is actually one of those cards that I probably feel quite attached to, after the whole creation process ;) Here is an up-close look at the banner. It actually carried the doily pattern with Versamark. It makes for a little bit of extra detail without detracting from the main focal point.

Hope you like this little creation. Hop over to the DTs samples and see what kind of inspirations they have cooked up for you. And since this is "Anything Goes" I expect you all to play :)
