Craft Stamper May Challenge - Take a Stamp Reminder

Hi all,

Today is reminder day for Craft Stamper's May challenge - Take a stamp.  Over on the blog you can see the design team's reminder pieces, to inspire you and spur you on to enter yourself.

This can be any stamped piece you have made, card, artwork, mixed media etc, but it must be your original idea, and you can use any stamps.

The sponsor this month is Wow Embossing Powders, and we have a fab prize of some vintage colours in a case, and a beautiful lacy stamp.




My reminder piece is a clock I made for myself, from an Indigoblu clock kit, I made it a while ago but hadn't shared it properly, so here it is, using the Mad Hatter stamp set also from Indigoblu.  I love the white rabbit holding the clock up, and using that for the hands to go through.



I initially painted the clock in hot cocoa paint, and covered in pantry white, then scratched back roughly on the surface to create a really weathered look.  I stamped in sepia to maintain the worn effect.

This hangs in my conservatory now, it's one of few pieces I actually have for myself!

So why not join us in the challenge, you can enter HERE, we'd love to see your interpretation of this month's theme.

Best Wishes,

Nikki
