Today, I'm is the lucky hostess of our challenge and I was a little selfish when I picked the date and the challenge theme. Our challenge this week is "BIRTHDAY" and can you guess why I was selfish this week?? It is my birthday...today! And it's not just any birthday, it's one of the big milestone birthdays and what better way to spend it then hopping around to see all the fabulous birthday creations from the SDC team and yourselves?
Hope you will join us and show off your birthday creations for your chance to win one of two random $30 gift certificates for Stampotique stamps.
The background has been painted, stencilled through with Grunge Paste, then had gilding flakes applied.
Now time to break out more of the fabulous new Autumn release stamps!
Bushes and 2 Sided Trees have been stamped and embossed then blinged a little and cut out. (they are really easy to cut out :-) )
One of my new favourites (they are all my favourites really) Sheep Monster has centre stage, complete with googly eyes, 'fluffy stuff', and sparkly hooves - well she is a birthday ewe lol.
The lettering was cut out with a Tim Holtz die.
So Happy Birthday To Ewe Kim, I hope it's a fab one!
I hope you can join in with our birthday challenge, and thanks very much for looking x
This is also my application for the design team, it may not be a work of art but it was great fun to make, and that for me is what Stampotique is all about, there are stamps here for everyone. As part of my application I have to say what my style is - I don't know what my style is, I like to do a good job without taking it too seriously. I just have lots of fun messing about with ink and paint and I would never make anything that didn't involve stamping - what's the point lol.
The second part is much easier, why do I want to re-apply. This is the dream design team, we really are like a family and we get to create with stamps we love, so as Donkey said 'Pick me, pick me' Good luck to everyone who applies, and to the lucky ones, you are going to have the BEST time xx
