It's Anything Goes fortnight at Fashionable Stamping Challenge

Hi Everyone
It's an Anything Goes fortnight at Fashionable Stamping Challenge and the DT have made some fabulous pieces to give you inspiration (if you need it).
For my anything goes I have gone with an Asian theme, infact this was made as a birthday card for a very good friend of mine that just loves elephants, an annual task that was getting harder and harder until I saw these stamps.
I started with a gelli print using acrylic paints in colours that I thought matched the theme.
Loads of stamping centre image and the elephants (stamped and cut out) with versamark and then heat embossed with WOW black ultra fine embossing powder and the background with black archival ink.

As you can see I have added a lot of white pen to add contrast and pick out some of the details.
Some black lace and black beads finish it all off.
Stamps used:-
Chocolate Baroque - Indian Textiles & Indian Elephant
We would really love to see what you create and remember as long as your entry includes rubber stamping  "Anything Goes"
thanks for stopping by
As this is a paint background I would also like to enter this into the current challenge at
Where the theme this month is "painty pleasures"
