August's Creative Challenge- Anything Goes!

Hello!
Welcome to the Creative Team blog for the month of August. As it is traditionally the time of holidays, and everyone gets a little busy doing other things, the theme this month is  ANYTHING GOES

We are  looking forward to seeing all your artwork and stamped projects that you submit in relation to this theme. To join in with this challenge (and you can join in as many times as you want), is simple; all we would like you to do is, make a piece of artwork, making sure that you include the theme and some rubber stamping. Pop back here to link up using the Inklinkz at the bottom of this post, so that we can see what you've made and then, leave us a comment to let us know you have joined in with the challenge. As always, there will be candy for one randomly picked entrant - the winner will receive £15 worth of The Artistic Stamper stamps of your choice. And don't forget....if you use Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry, you will entered into the draw, twice!!!! You can also enter as many times as you like!
 



Here is an ATC made on Kraft card and with an Acetate cover laying over the top to create an almost 3D effect  the stamps used are Debbie Cottons Early Bird Resort and Simple Swirls.  See my blog for full details and I look forward to seeing what you all come up with.
 

 For this challenge I decided to make a hanging. I used Cogs from the Tick Tock stamp set, and the background stamps; Cogs ,Lace and Dots. I also added embellishments from the mixed bags found at the shop. I hope you feel inspired to join in and I look forward to seeing all your entries.

I've created Tea cup coasters for this Anything Goes challenge. I've used MDF base. Stamps are from The Artistic Stamper Botanical plate 1 and 2.
For more detailed information please hop over to my blog - Neon Diary.

For this challenge this piece developed itself as always wasn't sure where I was going with it.
I tore the edges of and really liked the impression of corroded metal.
Neil Walkers heart stamp to compliment it.
All coloured with metallic acrylic paints.

Why not join the team this month with our anything goes challenge.
If you are interested in how I made this Pop over to my 
blog to read the how to. 
 

We hope that you will join in this month's challenge and look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry.
I will be back in a couple of days with the winner of last month's Challenge.
Have a very creative month
{hugs}
