NEW Stampotique Challenge site!



I'm really excited to announce that todays the day that the new Stampotique Designers Challenge site opens its doors.
The challenges are twice monthly. For the first challenge of the month any stamps can be used, for the second challenge its Stampotique exclusive.

Vicki G is the first DT member on 'the podium' and gets us all thinking about making a Love Themed Card.
There's also the opportunity of winning a $15 Stampotique Originals gift certificate. If you take part you are automatically entered into the draw.

I made the card above using the Crow stamp from the Stampotique range by Janet Klein and various quotes from Pride and Prejudice (Collage Press paper), which happens to be one of my favourite romantic novels (actually I like the scene emerging from the lake best of all in the film ;0) ). The gold is Viva Croco Crackling Colour. The crown and heart were drawn with a fine line pen.If you are wondering about the wing, its a chip board wing covered with black ink.....I don't do difficult lol

So whoever you are making a card for, whether its your other half or the dog, why not enter your finished pieces to the site and meet up with a new crowd!

WOW fantastic work - I must have a peek at the challenge. However, I only have one Stampotique stamp (for the moment) so would have to be creative to use it all the time! P & P is my favourite book and I have been in love with Mr Darcy for years. LOL
