It's Monday

Therefore it has to be Smudgy Antics day. This week is an "Anything Goes" challenge. For my part I made a card. Using a slightly different from the norm way of with a rubber stamp. Terra, over at the Smeared and Smudged Forum has been showcasing a couple of different techniques using rubber stamps. This one was so super easy that I thought I'd use it for my DT piece this week. If you want to find out how to do this - you'll have to pay us a visit. The technique uses just water, a rubber stamp and toilet tissue. Oh, an d time.
I used the Earth Goddess from the elementals set.
The image went from

with just a bit of water colour paint.
Is it me? - but like this the valleys look like the raised part!

I made a recess for the image as it is about 5mm deep and I wanted the edges to be protected.
The instuctions for this can be found here at Splitcoast Stampers.

I cut a frame from paper and using just an edge punch went round the edges. The offcut from doing the card were used down the sides. Some webby ribbon, die cut leaves and some dewdrops to finish. I followed the sketch from Midnight Madness for the layout.

Ok guys and gals - get your thinking caps on any come show us your crafty work.
The other DT members have got some awesome pieces to show as well so don't forget to go and see their work.
