{Spotlight Project} Shirley Uses Mop Up Panels for Color

 


Hello peeps! I tend to have a lot of mop up panels in my stash. I use Distress Inks as watercolour paints on an acrylic block, and when I've finished I spritz and mop up the colours onto a piece of card, so I'm left with lots of multi-coloured inky panels. I decided to put some to good use, and save me some colouring time!

The STAMPlorations girls will be coming in full force and we're going to be joined by three super-awesome, fabulous, and creative guest designers. Joining the STAMPlorations girls for 5 whole days are:

I invited these wonderful ladies because I've seen what they can do with STAMPlorations products -- and sure enough, they blew me away with the projects they created featuring the goodies they received!

and

Here's a preview of the stamps:

   
Bloomfully: Beautiful | Bloomfully: Celebrate


   
Bloomfully: Faith | Bloomfully: Forever


   
Bloomfully: Kindness | Bloomfully: Radiance

October Challenges Inspiration - Have You Played Yet?

Hello, challenge fans! Have you already played along with our October challenges? It's great to see so many of you back sharing your gorgeous projects for our new challenge season. If you are planning to play along but haven't had time to do so yet, you still have two weeks to join in the fun! The ladies from the design team are back with more inspiration to help you get creative if you feel your mojo needs a kick-start. I hope you find some time and inspiration to play along with us this month!

If you're new to our blog, please take a moment to become familiar with the challenge guidelines -- we would hate for anyone to be voted by the team as a winner or be randomly chosen as a top pick and then not qualify for the prize because they didn't follow the rules.
