We're Having A Hashtag Challenge At Ink Art Designs

Good morning and happy Saturday. We're having a fun challenge over at the Ink Art Designs Stamping Playground, and I'll let Dot explain!

The Ink Art Designs Animal Challenge is as follows:

~ Create any project (card, art journal page, canvas etc) using the theme ANIMALS.
Stamping must be the highlight of your piece.
~ The Animals theme can include birds, sea life and insects.
~ Use stamps only from the companies available through Ink Art Designs.
This includes Rubber Dance, Visible Image, Stampotique, Art Journey, Crafty Individuals, Art By Marlene, Katzelkraft,
That’s Crafty and Lavinia.
~ Share your project on social media using the following hashtag: #IADAnimalChallenge.
Your project, with the hashtag, can be posted on Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram. 

For more details about the challenge, the prize package as well as the discount code for all participants, visit our Ink Art Designs #IADAnimalChallenge post here.
Here's my piece using Lavinia stamps which can be found here 

 I started by sponging my background with acrylics in blue and silver. Then added some stencilling with Izink Ice and Diamonds.

 This is the glittery Diamond.

 And this is the Ice!

 And this is the gorgeous Sebastian, he's one of my favourite Lavinia stamps.
 There's also loads of Lavinia stamps in the background, and this is also one of her sentiments.
More Lavinia tiny seahorses!

Now it's your turn!
The challenge runs until the 8th of May and Ink Art Designs will select a random winner for a grand prize package which will be announced on the 9th of May.
Don't forget to check out the amazing prize here and then join in!
Have a great weekend, and thanks for looking x

I'm adding Sebastian into the Lavinia 'Blue and Silver' challenge. Take care x


  1. Gorgeous piece, love the seahorses. That ice and diamonds stuff looks wonderful. Have a fun weekend, hugs, Valerie

    Ink Art Designs - a great place to find fanstastic stamps

  3. Stunningly beautiful, both in colour and style.xx

  4. Beautiful journal page. I always love Seahorses and Lavinia stamps are so special. Have a lovely creative week, Angela xxx

  5. You've created a magical underwater scene - anything with seahorses is magical - they really are the most extraordinary creatures! I love the beautiful blues and it's great to see those new Izink products in action. I'm not sure I even realised that Lavinia made anything other than fairy stamps, so you learn something every day, don't you?!

  6. Oh wow Sue, what a stunning scene you have created, I love sea themes and this one is gorgeous. I have got some new IZinks but didn't know they would look so good through a stencil - thanks for the inspiration! Hugs, Anne xx

  7. Magical in its color palette, in its texture, and in its welcomed silence! Brilliant in its entirety! Bravo!

  8. There's just something nice about seahorses :)

    All the best Jan

  9. Beautiful page, these seahorses are very cute and I love the depth you have created on this one dear Sue.
    Sadly, it's too late for the challenge, I've just seen it was closed.
    Hugs and happy day, Coco xx
