Take It Make It Challenge : February!

Welcome to the launch of our February Challenge!

February is a 'Take A Technique' month, so the theme is: 

February 2016
Take A Technique
Use text or script background stamps, or text paper in your projects. Any language, any style. Old book pages, bits torn from magazines, scrapbooking papers.. whatever you can find! ... The 'text' part does NOT include sentiments, phrase or single word stamps.... think backgrounds!!

Show us how unique you can be, create anything your imagination cares to dream up! Share your cards, journal pages, layouts, 3D assemblage or whatever else takes your fancy. Your project can be any theme, any colour you want... as long as you've stamped somewhere, and your project has text included (not just the sentiment!) then you're good to go!

We have two prizes on offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for January is

A Sprinkle Of Imagination

A Sprinkle Of Imagination is a fabulous UK based online shop, full of all the stash you could possibly want! Pens, inks, paints, mediums, stamps, papers... you name it they have it! Definitely well worth spending a happy hour or two having a browse!
The Prize for this months randomly chosen winner is:

  Wow! Fabulous prize!
 Our randomly drawn winner will be one lucky person! 

Not only that.... A Sprinkle Of Imagination are very kindly offering 10% off all purchases from the shop for the duration of the challenge for all blog readers!

 The code to enter at the checkout is:
This code will work from 5-25th of February, with a minimum £5 spend excluding P&P.

Our second winner is our Design Winner. This winner is chosen by our DT, who all vote for their favourite design from all of the entries. This winner will have their winning project published in Craft Stamper Magazine, (with a 2 page spread of their very own!), they will have a GDT slot for an upcoming challenge, and will also feature in their very own Winners Profile blog post! 

I hope the prizes have given you all an incentive to win...... and how about some eye candy from the DT to give you some beautifully stamped  inspiration!
