Craft Stamper Take It Make It - Take a Stamp

It's the first Friday of the month, which means it's time for a new challenge at Craft Stamper Take It, Make It. Easy peasy this month - Take a Stamp.  We're also starting the month off with some great news - sales/readership of Craft Stamper have hugely increased following the revamp of the magazine under new editor Trish's watch.  Congratulations, Trish!  If any of you haven't had chance to see the new-look magazine, I urge you to take a look.

For my card, I started with a piece of mixed media paper, and smooshed and soaked spritzed Distress Inks from a craft mat onto the paper, then I stamped images from The Bee's Knees Folk Flowers before tearing the lower portion of the paper and adhering onto my card.  The sentiment is from Dee's Artsy Impressions Balloons and Banners.

This month's challenge is sponsored by Magenta, who are generously providing these stencils/masks to one lucky random winner:

Magenta are very kindly offering a $5 flat rate shipping deal to all UK CS readers on all stencils and cling stamps! Simply use the code: PromoCSUK at checkout. This offer is available from 7th-30th November.

The winner of this month's challenge as chosen by the Design Team will have their entry published in Craft Stamper magazine (so hold on to your entry in case it's you!), a feature on the blog, and will be invited to be a guest designer in a future challenge.  What are you waiting for?  Come on in!
