Craft Stamper Favourite Technique

Favourite Technique Challenge

Craft Stamper have a new challenge this month...
you can choose ANY technique, by ANY designer and from ANY issue of the Craft Stamper for 2014!
So that is probably well over a 100 projects to choose from.

The hard part is probably choosing one!
Then, when you enter you need to state what technique you are using, 
who the designer is 
and what issue of the magazine it is in.

And, of course...there must be stamping of some kind on your project 
~ we are a stamping magazine after all.

My choice this week is "Around the House: Clean Up"
by Birgit Koopsen in the February issue.


There were so many things that drew me to this technique...
Dylusions Inks for one
and stamping with household items, which is always heaps of fun.
The instructions were super easy to follow.

I added some extra Dylusions ink to the background by using the dropper to add lines of colour.
When this ink is dry, you can add other colours on top and they take on a life of their own...
the effects are amazing!

The household items that I used were all from my bathroom: a bath plug, a lipstick lid, an eye-liner lid and a shower scrunchy thingy.
And an old out-dated credit card to add the white accents at the end.

The main image is a brand new stamp by Inkadinkadoo...
and I thought it was appropriate because it is a flower in a bottle 
(it kind of fits the re-cycling theme).


The girls have come up with some amazing inspiration for you to check out 
so please follow the links on the Craft Stamper to see the fun they have had.
There is also some great ideas out in the August issue of the magazine - with awesome prizes to be won!
PLUS:  The Design Team will have a look at all your gorgeous work and choose their top 3...a The nd the overall winner will get published in Craft Stamper magazine!
AND: the Challenge winner will be offered a Guest Designer spot for an upcoming challenge!

Enjoy!
