Anything Goes...Even Flying Numbers!!!

Here is to Monday!...and a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp & Show!  It's super easy this week, with an "Anything Goes" theme, so now is the time to just create and not think about a thing. Let your creativity take you anywhere you want! 
 
I am currently teaching these two 9x11 inch wood panel canvases, because all the comments and emails about the Numbered Peacock were so overwhelmingly wonderful, so I thought why not make another animal and this time teach it. I just love making animals with these large numbers from Tim's Numeric Stamp Set from Stamper's Anonymous. I also used his Worn Text Set, as well as Paper Artsy's Mini Numbers 22, and there are lots and lots of Wendy stamps going on here as well. And, of course seeing the wood grain makes me happy X2!!! I had to do a metallic one and a bright colored one to give people different options. 

Anything goes this week, so let your mind go and create away, then enter it into our challenge. You just might be the lucky winner of a $50 voucher to Simon Says Stamp. You can also be named as one of the many  "Spotlight Artists" for this challenge. Good luck, and don't forget to check out the other Design Team member's blogs to see how their creativity went berserk this week...amazing work abounds!
Supplies:


I hope your hands get creatively inky soon!

  47. The numbered peacock peice has always stuck in my mind and I think of it nearly every time I see a peacock, which is just about everyday since there are about twenty of them roaming about the yard here. It's hard to get out of my head, lol. You are very clever and creative with those numbers. Great work as always
