Take It Make It Challenge : February

I think we are all still recovering from the AMAZING response to our January challenge! We were thrilled to see so many fabulous creations, and it was sooooo hard to choose a winner!

Before I announce the start of the February challenge, a quick bit of 'housekeeping'.... We still have two unclaimed prizes from our Blog Hop, so if you know you left a comment and haven't checked out the winners list HERE, can you have a look? I would hate for anyone to miss out on their prizes!

As you might remember, this year our challenge is alternating between 'Take A Stamp', and 'Take A Technique'....and this month our challenge is 'Take A Technique'!
In the February issue of Craft Stamper, there are loads of projects featuring stencils, so this is our theme!
February Challenge:

Use ink, paint, gesso, or texture paste through a stencil... Use one of the thousands of stencils on the market, or create your own! We want to see all your projects that use stencilling somewhere..(and stamping too of course, we ARE Craft Stamper after all!)

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! February's sponsor is Paperbabe Stamps
Owned by Craft Stamper DT member Kim Costello, Paperbabe stamps are a wonderfully eclectic mix of designs, from gorgeous backgrounds and quirky figures to doll face stamps, indispensable when it comes to creating our own whimsical faces! The prize for the February challenge? Two stamp plates of the winners choice! You'll be spoilt for choice!

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, 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 stencilling inspiration!

I have to say...there are some STUNNERS there, that's what I call inspiration!
