TCPTues266 {anything goes Hippos}

It's time for the next TCPTuesday Challenge. It's an easy one....ready....Anything Goes! There are NO excuses NOT to play.  I pulled out this darling set, And Baby Makes Three and got busy watercoloring it. 

These are the markers I used, along with an aqua painter. 

And here is a close up. I added some stamped hearts from the Build a Bingo stamp. I also embossed that green panel in the background with the Dots Cutups plate

I used the Deconstructed Sketch for this layout and needed some fishtail banner pieces. Framed Up 2, was perfect for the job. I also wrapped around some twill ribbon and added a die cut heart from the Talk To Me Cutups set.  A bundle of navy twine finished it off. 

Here are the Details on how you can join in on the fun:
  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted here on this blog as well as on our Splitcoaststampers forum and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design using the InLinkz button below*. If you want to display your pretties on Splitcoaststampers use keyword TCPTUES266. Only the entries uploaded to the Inlinkz button will be considered for Swanky Stamper at the end of the month.
  3. You must have your project posted by the Monday, 12 midnight EDT before the next challenge to be eligible to win the Cat Cash.
  4. Cards and projects are not required to use of a Cat’s Pajamas Stamp or CutUps die.
  5. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen at random from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is used.
  6. At the end of the month, The Swanky Stamper will be selected from all the weekly entries. The Swanky Stamper will receive some of the stamps from our next release and get to play along with us at our Pajamas Party and Blog Hop. AND… They’ll even get a special spot in the Gallery highlighting the project that won them the gig and a snazzy badge to display on their blog.
  7. The Swanky Stamper will be announced the First Monday of the month on Splitcoaststampers, Facebook page and this Blog.

Have a great Tuesday!
