Hello there - so how did you make out on our last challenge? I saw some lovely creations and I can't wait to see what you'll do with this challenge. It's a week where Anything Goes - the sky's the limit so pull anything together that you feel inspired by.
While you figure out what you're going to pull from your stash, let me try to inspire you :) I finally got a few new Neat & Tangled stamps and couldn't wait to ink up my Party Dots and use my nifty little sequins.

I really love how Danielle has been stocking sequins in her shoppe. Hmmm delicious colors of all sorts. Of course I had to get my own set and now I have lots of fun sequins to play with.
The background panel is impressed with a circles plate and then I sprayed three sets of Mister Hueys: first in Mint Julep, then a little bit of Water Cooler for depth, and then a nice mist of Shine. Unfortunately the pictures don't pick up the Shine, but there is a lovely mist of of shininess - a little like magical mermaid mist or dreamy rain.
Then I rocked & rolled the stamp in three shades of blue / aqua, starting with the lightest color. I don't really have smooth transitions and I should probably be practicing more, but I kinda like the sketchy look on the main focal point. It fits the background with the misting.
Anyways, the rest was just adding glue to the right spots: fish & sequins onto the card and then voila! Don't the sequins add so much? Oh just lovely little dots of perfect embellishments. I love that the flat sequins are flat - perfect for the mail, don't you think?
Hope it inspires. There is tons of other good stuff by the Design Team to stop by the other girl's creations. And in case you need more incentive to bust our your creative supplies...A free stamp set is at stake...
One lucky challenge winner is going to get two sets of goodies. So jealous...
