Craft Stamper Take It Make It - Take A Stamp

Hi folks, it's time for a new challenge at Craft Stamper Take It, Make It!  This month, it's Take a Stamp - easy peasy :)

I'm trying to use up bits and bobs of backgrounds that have been collecting on my desk.  The back panel was a leftover from a set of cards I'd done.  The next layer was waste from a larger panel, but it fit the Tim Holtz Tattoo You stamp exactly :)  I added some white gel pen highlighting.  The butterfly was cut from a piece of waste mixed media paper and dipped into Distress Inks.

I stamped some text on the kraft card base with Picket Fence Distress Ink.  I wasn't impressed because it just sat on top of the card, dried very chalky, and most of it rubbed off after the ink had dried.  So I flicked some Dylusions white ink on the card base.

Anyway, enough of that - what can you win?  Well, this is for our randomly chosen winner, courtesy of sponsor Calico Craft Parts:

And if your entry is chosen by the Design Team, it's published in Craft Stamper magazine, and you get to feature on the blog and in the magazine.

Please remember - only one project in your post!  And make sure you link back to our challenge.  Some gorgeous potential winners had to be discounted last month because they didn't meet the criteria.  Don't let it be yours.

Pop on over to the Craft Stamper blog for more fabulous inspiration from the team.
