August Challenge at Rubber Dance

Hi everyone,
I hope all is well in your part of the world. It is still cold here, but there are signs of Spring on the way with lots of blossoms on the trees.

It’s time to let you about the current challenge at Rubber Dance.


This month we have very natural colours, or you could choose the theme of Nature.
I’ve decided to go with the theme of Nature.

I’ve used a gelli print for the background on this card.
The owl was made from some card splotched through some brown ink, stamped and then bleached.

We have a new face book group that started today!
It is called ‘Rubber Dance Stampers Lounge’.  A place where you can check out what people are making with Rubber Dance stamps, ask any questions that you might have and generally be inspired.
I hope that you check it out if you are a face book user.

The stamps used in my card today are:



Bugs at FSC

This month it is all about BUGS at FSC!
It is my choice this month for a theme and I thought that bugs might be fun.
You can use butterflies, dragonflies, lady bugs or anything from the insect world.
For my card I chose spiders.

I’ve used distress oxides and stencils to create a creepy background.
Stamped some leaves in different green inks.
Then added a person who has wandered into a spidery web of danger.

This card made me think of a time when I was in the outback and found myself in a spot where the spiders were everywhere! I had to tread carefully and always look up just in case I accidentally had a close encounter with one of these creepy crawlies.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different takes on this theme. Please pop on over and check out their awesome creativity, be inspired and maybe join in the fun.

Ink Art Designs is our sponsor this month (that’s my Etsy shop) and has a gorgeous stamp set to give away to one lucky winner chosen by random org.

We also have a top 3 chosen by the design team and Saturday Spotlights where we showcase inspirational makes. And the icing on the cake is that each month we will be having a guest designer chosen from the entries.

Thank you for looking.

A reminder that I have a newsletter that goes out randomly with up-dates on specials and new stock coming into my Etsy shop.  A link is over on the right-hand sidebar.

Happy Stamping,
