Simon Says Stamp and Show Anything Goes!

Hello Everybody! Thank you for playing along with our last Challenge! The winners will be announced this Wednesday .... so don't forget to check back ... this could be your winning week! This week Simon Says Stamp and Show ... Anything Goes! If you want to join in the fun ... all you need to do is ... create Anything! ... pop it on your blog ... and come back here and link up so everyone can see what you made! Before you start take a look at what the Design Team came up with...
An old frame was due a little transformation this week, painted with Little Black Dress Fresco Finish acrylic paint, a little Crackle Glaze and a top coat of Snowflake. A fabulous dimensional heart cut from corrugated card using the Heart Wings die adds the WOW factor.
  
For this week's Anything Goes challenge, Candy is sharing three ATC cards.  Using combinations of various Distress Stains, Distress Inks, Archival Inks, Perfect Pearls and Matte Multi Medium, Candy has created three distinct backgrounds for her ATC cards.  From vintage to funky, ANYTHING GOES on these ATCs!
Ellen "followed her heart" this week, using Dylusions ink sprays (fresh lime and black marble) to create a marbled background, stamping with the hearts border from the Inbetweenies set, accenting with white gelly roll pen, creating a hand-stamped sentiment, and accenting with an idea-ology heart charm and wire pin.
Ohhhhh Lynne just loves it when it's "ANYTHING GOES"! She loaded a Canvas Art Board with Multi Medium and various mediums including Canvas Corp Burlap and 7 Gypsies Collage Tissue Paper. When dry she brushed on some Gesso, then she let the misting begin. She dipped the Canvas Corp tag into puddles of mist. The journal was bound using a Bind it All!
Dan took the opportunity to try out some new stamps and distress markers for his "Road Trip" card.  Products he used included Distress Markers and Ink Pads, some Kraft Resist card stock and the Road Trip and Psychedelic Grunge stamp sets.
Sarah is really excited to see all the fabulous Paper Artsy stamps and products at Simon Says Stamp. She created three ATCs using Distress Stains, Distress Inks and the Diamonds in the Rough embossing folder to show-case the Hot Pick Stamp ranges and great matching dies. 
Terry created a Welcome Tag for a new colleague at her work to make her feel welcome. She used the Postcard & Sheet Music embossing folder on the background, covered it with Crackle Accents and used Weathered Wood as the main color. Vintage Photo was used for the borders and of course the Rosette's could not be missed. To finish she placed the Game Spinners and  Sprocket Gear on top.
I had a ball this week creating the background for my tag with a Snow Cap Dabber and Dylusions Spray Inks in Cut Grass; Vibrant Turquoise; Fresh Lime and Lemon Zest! The stamps I used were Bits of This; Say What you Mean and Basic Backgrounds! I also used my Pro Markers! Such Fun!
