 Don't you just love the anything goes challenge...your creative juices are not confined.  With me it means I don't know where to start.  I got to use any stamp I wanted to also.  There is just so many things to choose from.  I literally have over 1000 stamps to choose from.  It took me forever to pick something.  

So I finally decided on using a stamp I got for my birthday.  My wonderful niece gave me a gift card for one of my favorite craft stores and I got a stamp set with some large flowers specifically to use this technique.  It's called white wash.  After I used the white I decided to add some extra color to it and added red and green.

If you follow my blog you may have seen that my sister and I went to Michigan last May to the Mega Meet.  There I met the owner and some of the employees of Sweet Stamps.  I was shown how to use the enamels on chipboard.  I love dragonflies so I purchased some.  This dragonfly was one the owner made and gave to me.

One day I'll be able to do this as lovely as she did.  For the background I used my new Dylusions sprays.  After I spritzed it and it was dried I put some water in my hand and dropped some on the paper to give it a splotchy look.  When it was totally dried I ran it through an embossing folder.  

I hope you will join us in the challenge and don't forget to check out all the wonderful creations made by the DT at LTSCB.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you have an amazing day.
