Stamp Your Art Out prompts: Love #1

Our 'new for 2020' Art Call, Stamp Your Art Out is proving very popular, we've had some amazing art submitted already! We thought we would share a few prompts, however, for those that may like some inspiration. We'll be sharing ideas on a Wednesday, for the two weeks after each brand new Art Call.

So.... a quick reminder of the theme this month: 


Love is a pretty broad theme, don't you think? As well as the romantic aspect of it, dreamy blush colours and flowery sentiments, there is also the very visual 'use a heart' idea too! Today we're sharing some projects that have done just that, used a heart shape as the focal point.

Don't forget, this art call is now open to any kind of project at all, not just cards. Back in our February 2017 issue, Anneke De Clerck shared these amazing freestanding heart decorations. Why not create something that *is* a heart, not just has one on it?


Heart shaped embellishments are always a wonderful addition to any project, and would fit in with our 'love' theme pefectly. Embellishments can be subtle background adornments, or can act as a focal point for your work. Lou Withers did this in wonderful style in our May 2019 issue. This crackled heart is just stunning!

Of course, hearts don't have to always be red! Why not try a fun and funky colour scheme? Tracy Evans did just that in our February 2017 issue, creating a gorgeous piece with a heart at it's centre, all in a bright and vibrant pink and yellow colourway...

We love having a good old blast from the past when it comes to stunning eye candy!

Have they inspired you? 

Don't forget, all the details on how to submit your love themed stamped art work can be found by clicking the 'Art Call' tab at the top of the page. 

We've also shared the themes for the next couple of issues too, just in case people want to be organised!

Join us here same time, same place next week for some more love themed prompts, and some more love themed inspiration!
