One Layer Wednesday #163 (Orange You Glad You Played Along), Simon Says Stamp Wednesday 23/10 (Halloween Colours), Simon Says Stamp Monday 28/10 (Anything Goes)

Karen is the host at One Layer Wednesday this week and has chosen ‘Orange You Glad You Played Along’ as the theme … use orange on your card.  As Simon Says Stamp Monday has an Anything Goes week, I’m submitting there too … and to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday, where Halloween or Halloween colours are de riguer (orange, green and black are good Halloween colours, even if the image isn’t even remotely spooky!).

I stamped the Avery Elle flower, centre and leaves, added some shading to the flower with Promarkers, stamped the sentiment and finished off with some tiny gems.  That was it …easy peasy.  Well, it would’ve been if it wasn’t for the numerous times over the last few days I messed up experimented to see how full I could make the paper bin under my desk.  That worked well, the floor’s taking up the slack.  Time for bed I think.

I’ll be back tomorrow, meandering and visiting.  Thanks so much for calling in, your visits and comments are, as ever, a delight!  Anita 🙂

    Your flower is sporting some beautiful shades of (Halloween) orange! The pop of (Halloween) black enhances the bold color so well which totally qualifies this as a Halloween colored card.

    You are truly the master of bling placement! Once again, the precise placement of the rhinestones perfectly balances the image and the sentiment!

    And hey…nothing wrong with experimenting! I figure that every sheet that hits the floor is not waste, it is merely the product of experimental creative therapy!

    If you’re anything like me though, the cha-ching meter that is built into our crafty little heads, quickly tallies the cost of ‘another’ wasted sheet of favorite card stock!

    I have this set and I love it, Had a few attempts to make a card, but no, nothing I could post. Now I am INSPIRED!
    And a BIG to congrats to another HM at Muse!

    Anita…this is stunning! Beautiful orange rose and just the right amount of bling too. I know what you mean about wasting card stock and any other card making supplies…hate when that happens and I had 2 cards hit the recycle bin this weekend, but sometime our minds and hands just do not want to work together! Congrats again on your Muse HM!

    Gorgeous! Such an eye-catching colour, and the bling is, as always, perfectly placed! I hear you with the recycle bin filling up, as I’ve been experiencing a bunch of grrrrr…episodes myself! Still, when things don’t work, and renovations aren’t an option, no other choice. Oh well, on the plus side – an excuse for shopping (as if I need one!) Happy Wednesday!!

    I love the depth and shading you have on your flower…. I have this set and find it hard to use for that reason!!! (Need to try harder). The bright orange really suits such a big bloom :0)

    Love the deep colours on this, Anita, and how the text overlaps the flower. Blingtastically perfect! My latest trick is dropping an inked stamp onto a finished card. Clever. But at least I can use the other side of the card.

    GREAT card! Beautiful orange flower. You should see my recycle bin and desktop. Simply covered with rejected experiments! This is seriously gorgeous. And I’m glad it’s not a Halloween card. It’s really nice to see something other than pumpkins in oranges this season. Love this.
