New Year, New Creative Challenge- Anything Goes

Hello, and Happy New Year!
Welcome to the first challenge of 2019!
Thank you to everyone who joined in last month's challenge, gorgeous creations :)

This month the theme is Anything Goes 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! There is no prize on there, it's just for fun!
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 I have created variations on a theme using postcards as the substrate, and my gel plate. I used a stencil from PaperArtsy's designer, Sara Naumann , plus stencils from The Artistic Stamper  I also used a calligraphic mat stamp to add more, and stickers and our number stencil from my stash for the year. Paint used was Amsterdam Acrylics . Which is your favourite? 


So for January's challenge of Anything Goes, I decided to make some nice bright tags to start 2019, I used Paper Artsy Fresco's and stamps and stencils from The Artistic Stamper.
stamps used Chicken Wire, Mini polka dot, Tick tock butterflies and Family Values, masks used mini large dot and Pattern 2 by Lesley Matthewson.

For more details pop over to my blog "Ink Blots"

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.
Happy New Year!
