July's Creative Challenge-All Things Bright & Beautiful

Hello!
Welcome to our monthly blog challenge!
A big thank you to everyone who joined in last month's challenge. We had lots of fabulous entries and I will be announcing the winner of June's challenge in the next couple of days.
This month the challenge theme isAll Things Bright & Beautiful.
You can interpret it any way you like, as long as there is rubber stamping in it.


To join in with this challenge (we are limiting the challenge entries to 3 per person), 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 a stamp of their choice from The Artistic Stamper
In addition, you can enter the same challenge on Facebook!  
To join us on just go to our new Facebook group, and send us a request to join.. 
There will be a prize for the Facebook challenge, as well as the blog challenge!
And don't forget....if you use The Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry, you will entered into the draw, twice!
Here is a little bit of creativity for you from the Creative Team to help you get started....


I have made the background page with Bamboo Open Texture Mat C156 © CaroLines stamped on my gelli plate and stamped Round the World on to it. I also stamped Floral Open Background with 2 Free Flower stamps on to the gelli plate to highlight the sentiment.

Then I glued houses and flowers from Houses on the bottom of the tag.





I created the background using acrylic paints, the honeycomb masksequin waste background and a calligraphy mat. I used washi tape and butterflies over the top.

Debs


I painted a tag with Dylusions paints, added some grunge paste through a mask (Designs by Georgina small Daisy) with a bit of paint, some Infusions and some embossing powder. Stamped honeycomb onto the background along with a bee and two butterflies from Butterflies 2 plate on painted tissue paper and a phrase from the  Botanical 3 plate onto piece of card painted in a contrasting colour.

We hope that you will join in this month's challenge, and also join us on Facebook too, and we look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry.
Have a creative month
Jennie

So sorry... I just realized I have entered a fourth card. Unfortunately I was not able to delete it myself. Would you please delete my entry #41 - I apologize for the inconvenience. I got overzealous with this wonderful theme! Thank you!
