How's your stencilling? Planning on joining us at Craft Stamper Take It, Make It? All you need to do is use a stencil (and stamps) in your project to be in with two chances of winning. This month's sponsor prize (two stamp plates from Paperbabe Stamps) will go to a random winner, and the winner voted by the Design Team will get their project published in Craft Stamper Magazine, a guest design slot in an upcoming challenge, and will also feature in their very own Winners Profile blog post - fame, yeah!
I had the bright idea of using calendar pages to personalise a birthday card. I stamped the sentiment (STAMPlorations Hashtag Authentic and Sentiment Builders: Happy) on the calendar page and mounted onto lime green card. I highlighted today's date with a Dotta-Riffic pen. Only trouble is, I don't know anyone with a birthday today. Is it your birthday today? Happy birthday - wanna card?
For the stencilled panel, I used ARTplorations Shutters stencil and sponged Distress Inks (Squeezed Lemonade, Pickled Raspberry, Dusty Concord and Tumbled Glass) over some areas, leaving some blank space. Then I turned the stencil round, lined it up and used the same colours to sponge into the blank space and over some of the other colours. You just have to be careful when you're sponging opposite colours that you don't make it too muddy.
Pop on over to the Craft Stamper blog for some fabulous inspiration from the design team, then join in the challenge.
