The Outlawz Greetings Challenge - Anything Goes

Good Morning, Crafty Peeples!
I have a quick post today for the Anything Goes Challenge over at The Outlawz.  The Greetings Team has made the last challenge of each month Anything Goes.   I like it because the Design Team members get to create freely and I have a chance to learn more about them as designers.  The projects this week are just fabulous.  I was seriously impressed.

Our sponsor this week is:
The Image I am using for my project is from Inky Impressions stamps.  I wanted to post a project this week, and since I already had this image colored up (and it was almost a perfect match for my card stock and DP) I decided to use it.  

I rubbed just a little too hard on my tissue paper while executing the "Faux Silk" technique.  The tissues tore in a couple of places and I had to "improvise".  I didn't have time to color another image and start over so I just went with it.
 I was attempting to create a distressed "faux silk" layer behind the image a piece of crumpled silk fabric.  My ever observant husband asked, 
"What is this challenge?  Stamp on crumpled up tissue paper? "  
"No, dear," I replied, "this is supposed to be a faux silk look."  
"Oh yeah," came his reply.  "Like that blouse you bought that wrinkles up as soon as you put it on.  Well I guess you got this faux silk thing down pat!"  (Laughter, laughter, laughter)

Simple inside.  Red is such a strong color it really does not need a lot of help.  The DP strip across the top covers the brad prongs.  In spite of my tissue paper boo boo, I really like this card.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope to see you at the Outlawz Challenges.
