Anything Goes Challenge

GI has an easy peasy challenge that starts today…anything goes…you know what that means…you have no excuses.  Just make a new card or project and enter it at GI.  Remember you can always buy a digistamp from GI or check her out at.. Guylou's Inimitability at CDAC and join the group to get a freebie and use it here and now.

Now I want to send out an extra bit to this challenge…do something you have never done before! Weather it is color is with a medium you have never used before, use a technique you have never done but always wanted to, or make a project that you never have done. Take a step out of your box and do something different.
Now because I am a member of the design team I got an image to play with…well we got two to play with. G made two great images for b-day, anniversary, or even wedding…Paul & Molly. I couldn’t choose which one I wanted to use, so I did a card for each image. Paul I kept simple. (I actually started this card with another image in mind and changed it halfway through to Paul)

I added small rhinestones to
the cake and used frosted
lace stickles for the icing.

Now for this next card I wanted to accept the same challenge that I gave to you and do something different…so with Molly I used my new liquid pearl, painted wire mesh, cut it into a flower and added that to my card. I wanted to step a little further outta my box but that is what turned out! Hope you like it!
Our guest designer for this challenge is Theresa…check out her submission here:  You know she will come up with something fantastic! Don’t forget to check out the rest of the design team.

Have fun!

Kim... two beautiful cards!! Love the shiny frost and the Rhine stones! Both cards have a awesome design!! Beautiful!

Both cards are great. I love the design of the Phillip card. I love that you tried something new on the Molly card. Her blue eye shadow to the eyebrows made me smile and think of Flo from that show Mel's Diner! Awesome.

I LOVE, LOVE the designs on both of these cards, Kim. You rocked this challenge. I love the colors you used too...That meshy stuff is too cool! The way you did the mat with the half nestie behind Molly is genius!

Charlene said... definitely went above and beyond on these the way you stepped out of the box on them. Your coloring is fabulous as always...I am so blown away at the way you did their eyes...and that birthday cake that Phil is holding looks good enough to eat! And I love the way you did Molly...all that beautiful dp is fabulous at making her stand out...and that mesh on the flower is such a unique and wonderful idea!
