Creative craft challenges and a new sponsor

Morning peeps and time for a supernew challenge at Creative Craft challenges and lets hope Mr Blogger lets us keep this one and doesn't celete it like many of our others.

On to the challenge well we have a super doozy for you all to get your teeth into this time,


Wow ... a bit like an open challenge but you have to be inventive too. Now loads of options here, you can stamp your opwn background, you could dry emboss it, you could paint it, you could do a tissue paper and glue sandwich, you could do encaustic so many to choose from the list is endless. Can't wait to see what you all choose to do.

Now onto our sponsors,

firstly we have some odd girl who are giving the lucky winner the chance to use some of their fab digi's for a taste of what you might win pop along here and have a nosey around the store. Some odd girl were also kind enough to let us have our choice of digi to play with.

An extra bonus this time too as Mr Blogger sort of messed up our last challenge, Sandra decided that she would carry over the crafty individuals prize from last time as an extra prize for this time too.

Our next sponsor is our newest sponsor and we are so pleased they have chosen to sponsor our challenge. They are

Rainbow craft Studios are a relatively new British company who make fab acrylic 'twee and twirly' design stamps. They are adding to their collection all the time and have quite a wide choice already. The company is run by two lovely ladies  Angela and Rachel, brought together by the blossoming romance of their 6 year old offspring and the rest as they say is history. If you haven't found them before please pop along and have a nosey well worth it. You can find them here. They also have free P+P on all UK orders so the price you see is what you pay no hidden extras.

Now rainbow craft studios let us have a play with a couple of their images in fact the same stamps that are the prize they have given us for the lucky winner, not one but 2 fab stamps.

The top 1 of the top 3 chosen by Sandra will get a wee goody bag from her.

Now I best tell and show you the things I made only fair .

My first card I made using the some odd girl image I was give Robo love well I think that's what it's called. I decided to have a play with the image and make my background paper from part of the image that I messed about with in photoshop. I thought the little heart was just so cute and would make the perfect backdrop for the cute robot. I coloured all in Promarkers and then added a computer printed sentiment. I think it would make a fab anniversary card or even thinking well in advance valentines card or even just because I love you card, fun anyway.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
I love promarkers-black white and 1 other
scrappy frog-use red
hooked on craft-anything goes

My second card I made with the fab stamps from Rainbow craft studios. Unfortunately I needed a sympathy card so I decided to use them for that but when you see the rest of the DT projects it will only show you the versatility of these fab background stamps. You'll never want to buy flowery paper again.

My card I stamped with versamark and powder embossed with obsidian violet moonglow powder. I simply mounted one on top of the other and added black ribbon and a bow. The card is edged with black promarker. The sentiment is from a set by the darkroom.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

There she goes-use 3 different stamps
Heart song inspiration-use a flower image/or handmade flowers
A spoonful of sugar-ribbon and bows
my time to craft-xtra images
whoopsi daisy-flowers
the crrosive challenge-ribbon and bows
House of gilli-ribbon and bows
