It's the first Craft Stamper Take It Make It challenge of the year, and we're shaking things up a bit. From now on, we'll have alternate challenges: one month it will be "Take a Stamp", and the alternate month it will be "Take a Technique". There will also be two winners each month: a randomly selected winner gets the prize that's on offer, and the winner voted by the Design Team gets their project published in Craft Stamper magazine, a guest design spot and a winner's profile.
So this month, it's take a stamp. Any stamp. More than one stamp if you like. I couldn't stop at one. I bought some canvas boards from a discount shop to mess about with. They're only 5x7 inches, so not too intimidating. I threw some Distress paints on it, then stamped the grasses (Artemio) in Versafine Onyx Black, then added some Frantage embossing powder across the bottom. The Paper Artsy butterflies were in my stash from a few months back - I'd stamped them onto stained/spritzed card and cut them out and they were patiently waiting to be used.
I hope you'll join in the challenge, because this is what you could win:
and all this! (There was too much for Trish to get it all in one photo!!)
One lucky participant will be randomly selected to win everything you see in both photos. If that's not an incentive to play along, I don't know what is! That's some serious candy, I'm drooling :)
Just remember, you have to use physical stamps for your main focus, and you must link back to the Craft Stamper challenge post (or at least the blog). Some entries had no link back to the blog at all last month so unfortunately they were discounted.
And that's not all. Come back next Friday because we're having a blog hop, with a prize package for one lucky random commenter at each of the 12 stops on the hop. As well as the prize pack, each random prizewinner will also get a little piece of original art from that blog. See you next week!
