Welcome from a snowy Kent, and this is the first day of Spring!  A Big thank you to everyone who joined in last month's challenge.We always appreciate it when you join in , and the entries were fabulous.

And don't forget....if you use The Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry, you will entered into the draw, twice! To get you started here are creations from some of the team...

Well....I have just had too much fun playing with my stencils, my gelli plate, and my glass paints, to create this card. I started with a gelli plate print using several stencils, then used the HARLEQUIN MASK and the SMALL DOTS MASK on the top layer with gesso and added a bit of doodling with a white posca pen, then added the sentiment.
For the top layer I traced the outline of the flower from the fabulous A4 DOG ROSE STENCIL onto a piece of white paper, then traced it with cerne relief onto a piece of acetate, I then used the pebeo vittrail glass paints to colour in the flower to give a stained glass effect, I attached it to my card by folding the top part of the acetate over the top of the card and attaching it with red tape. 

 I used the Daffodils stencil from Lesley Matthewson, as my main stencil. Colour the tag with Distress oxides, and use the Small Dots stencil to add texture to the background. I then used the daffodil stencil, coloured it in with yellow shades of Distress Oxides, and added clear modelling paste through it. As it goes on it draws the oxides through it to colour it.  Photographed in the snow just because I could!
We hope that you will join in this month's challenge, and also join us on Facebook too.

We look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry.

Have a very creative  month
