June's Creative Challenge - Colour it Blue

Welcome to the June Creative  challenge. Thank you to everyone who joined in last month's challenge.. we had some fabulous entries.
This month the theme is Colour it  Blue, and 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 fron some of the team...

Angie Coomber
I used a Canvas, and added  Gesso, with  Acrylic paints, the contents of a Jamboree Bag, some Tissue paper, and Grunge paste. The canvas was painted and stamped with The Artistic Stamper Stencils, and Artistic Stamper Stamps.


I challenged myself to decorate a teabag. This was brand new one that I got from online. I used Distress Oxides only in blue, and stamped one of Tracy Scott's new backgrounds , also in blue. I then added the girl from Garden Plate onto another tea bag and glued her on. A bit of PaperArtsy paint and sparkle was added to the image.


To make this blue card, you will use your small gelli plate as an inker with 2 tones of blue and 1 black acrylic paint that you will randomly mix. 
First you stamp the "Thank You" Artifacts stamp. 
Then you hide it with a piece of paper and spread paint on to the background 
with your brayer. 
Final touch : you stamp Butterflies of 2 different sizes and ink the borders with your brayer.
I will show you other samples made with these beautiful Artifacts stamps later in the month.

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
