New Challenge Blog "Stamps & Stencils"

Hello and Welcome back to my poor neglected blog...

I have some exciting news about a New Monthly Challenge Blog "Stamps and Stencils" which is being launched today 2nd of April but more exciting for me I am going to be a member of the design team.

It will continue on the 1st Thursday of each month.

So if you would like to join us you need to follow a Mixed Media style and include Stamping or Stencilling or even both. Entries can be anything from cards, to altered items, but they must have mixed media roots.
No digital images allowed, but vintage photo's will be accepted.

Sue is the host for the 1st challenge and the theme she has chosen is - Anything Goes, so please hop over to the blog and meet the other lovely ladies in the Design Team.

Here is my 1st entry, it has not been easy as I have just moved house, no excuses but my crafting
table is currently a cardboard box with a tray on it!!!!!



Her fine tail feathers are the flowers off Lin Brown new stamp by Paper Artsy.


Grunge paste through a stencil then stamped.


Leaves cut out to to give some dimension.


Flowers tinted with paint, another use for a copper plant label.


Again flowers used for sunshine, the copper has been puffed out.



The canvas is called New Beginnings for several reasons, or it could be called Freedom (note that the bird is not caged) 

Thank you Sue for all the hard work you have put into this new challenge, it is going to be such a joy to be part of the team xx
