Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge # 40 - Anything Goes!!

Wowee, I'm one of the new GDT at the Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge Blog, how exciting!!
The challenge this week is "Anything Goes", how easy is that! We would love for you to join in with this challenge and be in the running to win a great prize!

Anyways, on to my card ... I tried something very different this time - yes I used colour on my image. I have been colouring in b/w for some time now but have just invested in some colour copics and had to try them out (of course I now have a big list of more colours/shades that I need - hehe). I also wanted to use this gorgeous Lil Lad Damon stamp that I have (but never used - eek). I dont make enough masculine cards, I'm sure many of you are the same - so I'm hoping this will inspire you! What do you think?

The Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge DT have been busy creating some amazing works of inspiration so hop over to the Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge Blog, take a look and leave them some comment love! Remember you will need to use a Tickled Pink Stamps image to join in with this challenge.

Tickled Pink Stamps have so many amazing stamps/images including Lil Lolitas, Lil Lads, Lil Pinkettes, Cherrie and Pink Pets.  Also, all of the TPS range of images are available in digi for all of October, yay!!  While you are shopping also check out the "Pink Ribbon" special release with all proceeds going to the Pink Ribbon Day charity.
