And don't forget....if you use Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry, you will entered into the draw, twice!!!!
To get you in the mood here are some gorgeous creations from some of the Creative team
Crafters Workshop Stencils.
I used the Insects and Butterflies Plate and also had great fun playing with some of my Dylusions Sprays.
Well, I couldn't resist a challenge theme like this... it's rare for me not to use embossing and/or texture!
I love the "now you see it, now you don't" of clear embossing, and on this tag I've partnered it with some clear texture paste too... as well as lots of Distress Inks and Stains, and stencilling - using both an Artistic Stamper mask and other stencils.
As well as one of the new Tim Holtz Classics sets, I've been playing with lots of words - fabulous script background from Calligraphy Mat #4, and large words from the Journalling Words #2 plate.
I have created an altered book niche. I used Texture paste through a stencil, and added Dies cuts from Tim Holtz which I stamped with the cogs background., and embossed with some light blue embossing powder. I finished it off with PaperArtsy Fresco finish paints, and highlighted some of the cogs with Viva Décor. Before putting it all together, I added some watch pieces in the little bottles from Creative Expressions.
We hope you will join in this month's challenge and look forward to seeing you creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry.
Finally, just a quickie reminder of you haven't spotted that we are looking for more Creative Team members! You find out how to enter here. The callout ends tomorrow night.
Have a very creative month
