      Hi, ladies! Yes, you read that right: Anything Goes!!! Well, *almost* anything; read on…

      Here’s how this Challenge works: Create a project (scrapbook layout, canvas, card, tag, OTP project, it’s up to you) that includes something that “flutters” – butterflies, dragonflies, bees, ladybugs, birds, fairies – we all have these among our embellies, dies and punches, right? You can use any of your scrappy supplies (one exception: nothing from other kit clubs, please), but you get extra points in the random drawing for using Swirly Stuff.

      And now for something different: You don’t need to use your Swirlydoos Kit to play along. However, the inclusion of Swirly Stuff from past kits or from the Boutique (must be at least 50%) will give you a an extra point; ingredients from the July “Sprocket” kit will give you one more. Each month, I’ll be adding a couple of twists – one for the theme and one for the technique. So every entry can count for up to five points when it’s time to pick the random winner.

      The Theme: Anything goes! It’s Summer for most of us and it’s a busy time for all of us. As long as you include a flutterby or two, it counts this month.

      The Technique: Anything goes! (See above.) Stamping, misting, embossing, splatters, rub-ons, handmade embellies… Just point out what you’ve done with your entry and you’ll get an extra point.

      You can share your finished entry here on this thread and in the “August ATF” folder in the Swirlydoos Gallery on Facebook. If you don’t have a Facebook account, no worries; uploading your entry here will still count.

      Please note in the description or title that it’s for the “August” ATF Challenge.
      You can enter as many layouts and projects as you wish; in order to “earn” those extra points, please point out the qualifiers (name/month of kit, technique, etc.) in your description.

      The Challenge will be open through Thursday, August 31. I’ll be choosing at random the winner of a small RAK and announcing the winner on September 1.

      I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!!!

        This card, featuring papers and flowers from the May “Spring Grunge” kit and a garden fairy from my stash, is also featured in the August Card Challenge.
        I (and the other DT Members) will be adding more projects after the Reveal.

                Here is my LO for the AFT challenge. I used the Lady Belle kit from Feb. 2014. I also used the sketch that came with that kit. I used Heidi Swapp stencil and black gesso to make the hexagons. I used a Prima mask and Pigment ink (coffee bean) to make the bricks. I used a Tim Holtz stencil and Inkadinkado ink (coffee bean) to make the splatters. I used Prima clear stamps and Color Box ink (black) to stamp the honeycomb and writing. I used black gesso to paint behind the Moment paper. I made two flowers, which I misted using Moon Shadow Mist (buccaneer bronze). I embossed the chipboard using Tim Holtz distress embossing powder (vintage photo). I have two butterflies, one is on the trinket and the other one I painted and use glitter on it.
