Craft Stamper TIMI Challenge - November - Take a Stamp

Hi everyone,

Today is the start of a new 'Take it, Make it' Challenge over at Craft Stamper, and the theme this month is 'Take A Stamp'.  This means you can enter ANY stamped creation you have made recently, be it a card, artwork, mixed media, anything.

I have taken an mdf bauble, which I painted in Indigoblu's Gee Sso Good black Gesso.  This is then left until completely dry, or flake can stick to it.  You can also use the black as chalk board paint, just make sure you do a few layers first.

I have then stamped Splattered Heart in Flitterglu, and used Chocolate Box Megaflake.  I stamped Dinkie Butterfly splat the same, but onto a piece of black stamping card, and flaked again.  I cut the centre's only out, cutting round the butterfly leaving a small flake border.  These were adhered with silicone glue.

All it needs is a pretty ribbon and you have a handmade bauble.  You can decorate the other side too, the same or different, so that when it turns on the tree you can see both sides.  Or you can add the date you made it, so you can keep it for years and always know.

Our sponsor this month is Magenta Stamps.

So head across to the TIMI challenge, check out the inspiration from the rest of the Design Team, and then join us and enter your creations.  Don't forget to check out the guidelines, and most of all, enjoy!

Have a good week,

Best Wishes,
