Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes....

The are a few changes taking place at Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog.

 You may have heard there are new members to the Stampotique DT (welcome, girls). We are such a big team from now until Christmas that you will notice that the DT has had to be divided into two groups.

Not only that but there are weekly challenges!!

AND...(there's more)...in the challenge themes, participants are now also allowed to use non-Stampotique stamps alongside those Stampotiques.

 OK...

 That's all now sorted, time for this weeks theme.




Here is my contribution for this weeks challenge theme over at Stampotique. It's a sketch challenge which  as you may know, I always find difficult to find the ooomppf to start putting together as the freedom I like to have when making something is restricted to a certain extent and had been flapping about it for a number of days. In the end I made this at 6am one morning after waking up thinking about the stamping projects that I needed to get a start on had been playing on my mind. I used Stampotique's Leopard Queen for the main image.






Below  is the sketch template that is the basis for the theme. I decided to print the sketch out and use the photocopy to get me started and ended up incorporating the photocopy into my card!.



I hope you will join the challenge if you have a spare moment this week. There are still a great prizes to be won by lucky stampers taking part who will be drawn at random and announced next week on the Stampotique Designer's Challenge.

Love how you printed out the sketch and used it. Love this image and the addition of the flower, pearl and wire stem is perfect. Great job on the sketch!

Weekly - oh wow! I am struggling with any challenges, any crafting at the mo with the Olympics which has become be-all and end-all at my place, I knew I'd be keen but I have been surprised at how addicted I am to it!! Anyway, it's over soon so things may get back to "normal"!! Love your sketch interpretation, it looks fab.

Love your card, Jo. Fantastic idea to use the actual sketch! Think I'll have to add Leopard Queen to my wishlist. It'll make a change from all the floral stamps I've been buying. lol

Hope you're okay xx
