LTSCB #48 Anything Goes!

It's time for another great challenge over at the Love to Scrap Challenge Blog. This is an "Anything Goes" challenge, so get your creative minds to working and join in. Our lovely sponsors this time around are:

Prize: 2 images of choice to winner/3 images if they used a TSB image

Prize: 3 images of choice to winner

Prize: $10 gift certificate to winner
 For anything goes challenges, I like to deviate from the normal cards and do something that is different. This time around I chose to make a primitive lamp using a paper mache' tissue box that I bought at Crafts 2000. The image set that I chose to work with is called Daisies-Ladybugs from Fred She Said Designs. This set comes with several images both colored and uncolored as well as a sky w/ cloud background paper. I used the single daisy w/o stem, ladybugs, and daisy chain. I cropped the daisy chain twice in Word to just get the two end flowers. Here is my creation:

 I used this as a donation for a church dinner door prize.  There is a lot of layering and playing around in Word to get this all together. I ended up just printing the larger center daisies separately and gluing them to the paper. I printed everything out as a mirror image, colored them with copics, and then copied the whole thing onto the Decor Attitude sheet that I used a couple of challenges ago. I then just had to glue it to the box that I painted with acrylic paints. I colored some dewdrops with alcohol ink and glued them down. I covered the whole box with spray varnish before adding the doily and electric candle to the top. I inked the edge of the doily with copics as well.

I also made a card using the same images. This time though, I just printed everything out and cut out the flowers instead of trying to layer everything into a single image.

 I hope this will inspire you to join us for our "Anything Goes" challenge. Just make sure you use some kind of stamping. The challenge begins today and runs through March 1st.
