Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #17 ~ Picture Inspiration

Welcome wonderful crafters, before I go on to our latest Paperbabe Stamps challenge, I wanted to let you know that I will be away for some fun family time with my children and I will not be sending orders out from the 27th of July and during that week.

Orders will resume shipping on the 3rd August.
Thank you for your patience, The shop will still be open during that time for you to peruse.
I will fill orders as quickly as possible.

Etsy have now added the Eu VAT to all digital products... so if you think I've upped my prices it's not the case, just the EU VAT law is now in effect and has been included in the price you see when you're in the shop. It's affecting all of us I wish there was something I could do!

Anyway... today's challenge is a

Picture inspiration...

Just look at what our talented team have created!!!

Kerrie stepped out of her own Comfort Zone with this make, using her Twinkling H2O watercolour paints sprinkled with table salt - Paperbabe Stamps You Quote 'Comfort Zone', elements from DesignA KnitKnitted Background, 'A Lot Like Christmas' (script stamp), Spritz & Speckles, and the circle & spot from 'Doll Face'

Chris has made a colourful card taking the bright circular paint pans as inspiration from the photo using the You Quote 'Dreams take you' and 'Wonderland Checks' stamps.

Kim went crazy with colours, she painted her mixed media portrait with brushos stamping and pencils. She used the mini version throughout: the hair is the Central parting with head and torso templates, the doll face stamp and the poseable hand template. The Rose border stamp was used to create the motif on her top and finished off with an appropriate art quote ~ Logic & Creativity!
