Challenge #126 – Use Your Inks Anyway You Like

We are a stamping challenge so we do need to see rubber/acrylic stamping on your project.

To qualify for the winner’s prize we especially need to see that the stamping is the focal point on the project and that the stamping follows the format of the theme.

NO DIGI STAMPS ARE ALLOWED …
but you may use digi downloads for enhancement of your projects … please remember that the main focal point must be STAMPING.

The winner of each challenge will receive a very generous stamp prize from our new sponsor.

Please pop back on Tuesday to see who the winner is for challenge #125 – ‘Gone Fishing’ and for the top 3 plus the spotlights on Saturday.

Onto the challenge …

Use Your Inks Anyway You Like

Easy challenge this month, who doesn’t like to use them there inks.

When you have chosen the path you would like to take then come back and show us your results with Mr Linky below.

For this challenge FSC would like to welcome Judy from Judy’s Joys as our Guest Designer

 Judy lives in Portland, Australia near our very own DT member Dot.

Being a retired nurse I developed a passion for card making and scrapbooking while I was working as a nurse in mental health a few years ago.

One of my clients got me started with card making and I found a new niche in life.

My passion has led me to running a card making group for people with life struggles, mental illness and or intellectual disability.  This group of ladies, of varying ages, have become more confident and have improved mental states due in part to the card making group.  I love the new challenges presented and the card group are also enjoying the new ideas and multi medium tasks with really good results.

 Here is what Judy has made as her debut piece for FSC and I am sure that you will all get some fantastic inspiration from her make.

Dot chose the theme this time round and she starts her solo walk with this fabulous card showing off a stunning background displaying an amazing stamped image.

To see how she has made it pop onto her blog where she will have all the information for you.
