Craft Stamper March Challenge - Take a Stamp

It's challenge time at Craft Stamper Take It Make It, and this month it's Take a Stamp.  Any stamp.  One stamp, lots of stamps, your choice.  I used a bird stamp from Dina Wakley Scribbly Birds, a netting stamp from Stampendous and a sentiment from Waltzingmouse Little Trees.  The background is sloshed watercolours (yay!).  Added a diecut branch from Simon Says Stamp, distressed the edges of the panel and layered it all on to yellow card.

Our sponsor this month is Paper Artsy, and here's the prize for one randomly chosen lucky winner - a limited edition set of paints and stamp set by Darcy Wilkinson:

If yours is the winning entry voted by the Design Team, it will be published in the Craft Stamper magazine (so hold on to it!) together with a profile post all about you, and you'll get a guest design spot in a future challenge.

Pop on over to the blog for some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team, and join in to win!


  1. Love your Sloshed background with a bit of stamping and your style of coloring cut out bird. So creative and so You Shirley:-) TFS your description too.

  2. Shirley,my dear friend, I've fallen 10 (yes, TEN) posts behind with commenting, but not with gazing and admiring in delight and awe at your wonderful creations. The girly Happy 50th Birthday for your friend, the manly numbers and drink ticket combination, the selectively coloured married couple, the pretty memory book (oh myyyyy....), your two innovative coffee-themed delights, , your happy scribbles flowers and your sweet bird here, have all set my heart them immensely! Yet again, your creativity is...well, WOW! WOW x a zillion!

  3. Oh my...this is stunning Shirley! Fabulous contrast with the die cut leaves and the soft, beautifully inked bird and background!

  4. What a deliciously spring time scene, Shirley ... from the sunshine sloshing to the softly coloured bird on his branch ... just lovely! Anita :)

  5. Wow, Shirley, I feel like I could hold out my finger and that precious birdie would step right on it! I am over the moon with this beauty!! Hugs, Darnell

  6. Love the soft, sloshed background and your gorgeous bird. Loll xx
