A BIG thank you to everyone who joined in July's Challenge, We loved all of the entries.
Our new challenge for August is Anything Goes. You can interpret this anyway you like :) as long as it has rubber stamping in it.
We are looking forward to seeing all your fabulous artwork and stamped projects that you submit in relation to this theme. To join in with this challenge (and you can join in as many times as you want), is simple; all we would like you to do is, make a piece of artwork, making sure that you include the theme and some rubber stamping. Pop back here to link up using the Inklinkz at the bottom of this post, so that we can see what you've made and then, leave us a comment to let us know you have joined in with the challenge. As always, there will be candy for one randomly picked entrant - the winner will receive £15 worth of The Artistic Stamper stamps of your choice. And don't forget....if you use Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry, you will entered into the draw, twice!!!! You can also enter as many times as you like!
Some of the team have created more fabulous artwork for you to be inspired by....
Cut and stuck a butterfly I have made using the stamp kissing technique, and I stamped the sentiment on a piece of kraft paper.
Since it's Anything Goes this month, I've been doing some art journaling - or at least I've been creating in a journal. I used the Jumbo Camellia by Katy Leitch - which has lots of extra flower heads to play with - as well as Calligraphic Mat #4 to add to the romantic background layering of book pages, tissue tape and gesso.
Once the background was in place, I started layering papers and ephemera - lots of it from the Tim Holtz Ephemera packs, though Jennie's got some fab ephemera packs too. These just happened to match! I also added some metal leaves which I "rusted" with Distress Embossing Powder. Lots of Dylusions splatter gives the pages their finishing touch. Come and see more over at Words and Pictures.
I am here today with my first Artistic Stamper challenge.
I made it by using the insects and butterflies plate,
calligraphic mat 18, and the
Time and Keys plate.
Fresco Finish paint in the following colours London Night, Mushroom
and Nougat. A wooden butterfly painted and treasure gold applied
Chipped Sapphire distress ink on the butterflies and clear embossed
glitter paste through a small dot stencil.
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.
I will be back tomorrow with the winner of July's Challenge.
Have a very creative month
