READY... STEADY... STAMP


Today sees the start of a new challenge blog..........READY....STEADY....STAMP. It is run slightly differently than a lot of other challenge sites in that you are given a set of "ingredients" that you have to include in your piece. Today you have to include a cat or a dog, use the faux batik technique, a piece of old book page or journal, the colours gold and black and use three different brads.

So, here is my piece...........the gold is not too evident, it is a very small amount around the edge of the text paper in the corner and also one small gold brad!

My cat is not an ordinary cat...........it's a BIG CAT!!

Click the photo for a closer view, it was hard getting a good scanned pic of this piece.

This is absolutely gorgeous, I love the idea and I love what you have done with it. Might have a go myself, feeling a bit sleepless and owl-ridden, (they've been hooting all night lately) but couldn't match this!

Stunning piece of art!!!! I saw Chris's entry and went to have a look at the challenge page, spotted your name in the list of entrants so had to have a look. I think I will have to have a go at this challenge as I seriously need to get away from my cute stamps and try something different, haven't had much time or inclination to create lately!
