Just for Fun - anything goes

So many ways to use a stamp once again we enjoyed visiting you and seeing what new technique you explored.   When we started Just for Fun we gave each member of the DT a 4 week month each to organise, when there is a five week month we decided that the fifth week would be an anything goes week.   For some this is more of a challenge a theme helps to get the creative juices going!   I fall into that group but thankfully a TV Program helped with this week.

A few weeks ago on one of the documentary channels there was a program about playing cards and the discussion touched on Tarot which were originally another form of playing cards or so they said.  Anyway it occured to me that it would be fun to design and make a Tarot Card.  

This is the Magician No. 1 in the greater suite of the pack.   The stamps are all Tanda the sword, cup and infinity sign were hand drawn, as if you could not tell!   Images and border masked and card brayed after a few Versamark pen dots were made to represent stars.   Images and border coloured with Pro Markers and then the floral border embossed in WOW powder.

Hopefully this will reassure many of you that I am recovering, thank you so much for your concern LOL.  There might be the odd relapse but the style you expect should be seen here more frequently again soon.

Will you have a go at it this week and let your inspiration come from where ever and join us in our anything goes week this time at Just for Fun?  Hope so looking forward to seeing what you make.
