Anything Goes this week at  Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge! I am still working through my backgrounds and scraps to put together into different projects.  

This came together pretty quickly with a few scraps laying around my desktop.











I started with a mix of paints rolled onto a gelli plate. I wanted to use neutral earthy colors and a touch of gold.  


I created several backgrounds with the mix of paints on the gelli plate onto white cardstock.  I stored them away in my background file.   When I was looking for something to play with I pulled out one of the backgrounds.

 I added a few different pieces of paper tape in random areas of the background. I then stamped the wordblock over the background.  I used a stencil to add a layer of embossing paste and painted it with a touch of light yellow paint.

From there I decided to cut a piece for my card.  Now for the fun part... I left it on my desk scratching my brain trying to figure out what to use it with.  A few die cut feathers fell on the background. and that is when it all started to come together. 

I stamped the buck using brown ink and cut him out.  I stamped the compass on a wood button.  I sponged the feathers and added a touch of script.  I applied crackle glaze over the feathers and the button.
