Something Monochromatic CHALLENGE

Happy Friday Everyone!!

What a "wild" week we've had!! Thank you again to everyone who participated last week!! We love seeing how each person interprets our challenges!

Can you believe we are on our 6th challenge already!! Time flies when you're stamping something!!

This week we've decided on our first color challenge!! The challenge is to create a project (card, scrapbook page, 3D item....) using a monochromatic color scheme. We're loosely defining "monochromatic" color with any number of shades and one neutral (white, ivory, black).

So stamp something monochromatic for your chance to win some fabulous blog candy or just to challenge yourself to try something new!!! This week to fit the theme, we have some great monochromatic candy too!! Blue brads, buttons and more!!

Leave a comment on THIS post with a link to your creation to be entered into the drawing! Don't have a blog? Just email me, Erin, and I 'll add you to the drawing.

****Please note we are no longer able to accept anonymous comments. So if you have trouble posting, just email me instead. Thanks****

"In the Wild Somethings" CHALLENGE

Happy Friday All!

Thanks for another great challenge last week and a special thanks to Katharine Frei for the fantastic sketch. The challenge for this week is "In the Wild Somethings," show us your wild side! Make a project using natural materials, images of nature, or anything that you can think of that has to do with wildlife. This week we are lucky enough to have another guest designer take part in our challenge.

We would like to introduce you to Laura Kirste Campbell, our friend and owner of a new online stamp boutique! Laura was kind enough to donate the fabulous blog candy we're offering this week. We feel very lucky to have her participating in our challenge and we hope you'll join us as well.

Laura is a professional artist and owner of the family run online stamp boutique, Layers of Color. She's gifted with creativity and a heart for encouraging others. Her creative vision is to offer artists inspiring products and ideas that give power to their imagination and life to their artwork.

Laura's a work-at-home mother of four living in the country near Seattle, on their family property, Cottage Hill. You can learn more about Laura, and find galleries of her artwork, on the blog she shares with her eldest daughter, Jessica.

Laura has created all of these fun samples using the "Under the Sea" stamp set, which she has designed!

For a chance to win your very own "Under the Sea" stamps (as shown to the left) all you need to do is play along with us this week and make something wild. Comment with a link to your work on THIS post by 7pm ET on Thursday, June 12th.

We will continue to do our best and visit each and every one of you. We love to see all the terrific creations you share with us! Thanks for joining us this week and good luck to everyone! Go on and stamp something wild!
