Heaven Knows... Anything Goes!


This weeks theme on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "anything goes". I've been in such a "painty" mood lately, I decided to let rip on this card and go all out with Claudine's Studio range of acrylic paints! 
I applied various colours of paint using a Ranger craft scraper (though an old credit or store card would work just as well).  In between layers I let it dry so that the colours wouldn't mix together.  I also stamped various elements between painted layers, so that parts of them showed through the thin layers of paint. The little boy is a Tim Holtz stamp, coloured with Promarkers.
Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)

The colour palate is sublime and I love the way you've used accent colours, especially the yellow, to add tension to the composition. I just want to reach out and touch this, it's so textural. Wonderful!!
