January's Challenge- New Beginnings

Happy New Year to everyone!

A BIG thank you to everyone who joined in December's  Challenge, I know December is a busy time for everyone, so thank you for taking the time.
Our new challenge for January is New Beginnings.. You can interpret this anyway you like :) as long as it has rubber stamping in it.

We are  looking forward to seeing all your 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 artwork for you to be inspired by....

I  made tag for this inspiration post. I've used Birds of Feather and Free as a Bird stamps from The Artistic Stamper.

I've created a pair of ATCs marking the passing of the old year and the coming of the new one.  
The backgrounds are stamped with the fabulous number and word collage stamps from the Family Values set.  I used various Distress Ink colours and clear embossed them, and added Vintage Photo Distress embossing powder around the edges for a textured finish.

Then Katy Leitch's Dates stamps were perfect for my tiny tags, complete with rusty bells to ring in the New Year.  And some ChitChat stickers share a couple of thoughts about what's past and what's to come.  You can see more details over at Words and Pictures.


I have created a page for a calendar using Graphic 45's Time to Flourish papers ( January) and Katy Leitch's Numerical Plate  stamps to make the 2015, and the edge of the paper.

We hope that you will join in this month's challenge and look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry.
I will be back tomorrow with the winner of last month's Challenge.
Have a very creative month
