May's Creative Challenge - Backgrounds

Welcome to the May Creative  challenge. Thank you to everyone who joined in last month's challenge.. all wonderful entries.

This month the theme is backgrounds, and we have some sneak peeks in the Team's creations of some new stamps to be released on May 18th by a Guest Designer! 
 It can be interpreted any way you like, as long as it has rubber stamps on it.

To join in with this challenge (we are limiting the challenge entries to 3 per person), 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 a stamp of their choice from The Artistic Stamper .
In addition, you can enter the same challenge on Facebook!
To join us on just go to our new Facebook group, and send us a request to join..
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 three of the team...

 I have made a super mini book (5x8 cm) book to share with you all as my inspirational piece for this months challenge. The base was some cereal packaging and some small cards I was given, I decorated these with Jennie's wonderful stamps and a mask, with a super sneaky peek of an exciting upcoming release, please pop over to my blog for more details and drop me a comment let me know what you think.

and of course, the stamp that's coming soon

Hands up all of you who have a huuuuge pile of backgrounds that you have made, either gelli prints or stamped or stencilled, or any other technique, just waiting for the right project to use it on...!!!!....I thought so...sooo that's most of us then!!!....Well...you are in for a treat when you see the new stamps that The Artistic Stamper are launching, and here is a sneak peek of one of them that I have used to make the background for my card. I simply added a butterfly from the INSECTS AND BUTTERFLIES stamp set, then added a sentiment. Somebody stop me from using this background stamp....cos my pile is twice as high now!!!!!

 I had great fun with this piece, using Distress Oxides, an Artistic Stamper stencil ( small dots)  and a very small sneaky peek of one  of the new stamps coming your way this month. I added a quote to the piece, inking in Distress Oxide.

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, and watch out for our stamps launching soon.

Jennie xx
