May challenge and DT call

Hello peeps, time for a brand new challenge here at Penny Black at Allsorts and this month we would like you to:

"Shape Up"

Simple, anything you like providing it's not square or rectangle, other than that whatever theme you like........providing of course your main image is a Penny Black stamp or Stickeroo.

If you read my post yesterday you will know we have a DT call. We need one new DT and if you are interested please add DT alongside your name when you add your entry to Mr Linky. There are no specific requirements, other than a love of Penny Black stamps and be prepared to commit sufficient time to commenting on entries within a personable time frame of people entering. The successful person will be notified by 31st May and announced here the following day when the new challenge goes live.

Don't forget to pop over to Penny Blacks web site where you can join the Penny Black Club and be amongst the first to hear all the news. Plus you can even share your work with other Penny Black lovers at the Penny Black Circle and join in their competitions to win some super prizes.

And joining us for the first time as a sponsor we welcome Sir Stampalot who carry a great range of Penny Black stamps and products along with a whole host of crafty goodies. Keep an eye peeled here for the new Spring releases when they land in the UK.

So lots of prizes on offer again including two of the brand new stamps from Penny Black Spring releases which should be hitting the stores any day now................

Next up Letraset who are offering a set of Aquamarkers, their wonderful watercolour pens. You will find details of their full range of pens and markers on their website.

And last but by no means least, PB Stamps who are offering one very lucky winner a lifetime 15% discount off all purchases from their store. Click on their logo to go check out their store packed with all things PB, both old and new.

We are thrilled to welcome Emma as our Guest Designer this month. Emma was one of the founders of Allsorts challenge..........who celebrate their second birthday this month................and it has been lovely to work alongside her for two years now. Please do pop over to her blog to say hello.

The challenge in a form of a shaped card is interesting and challenging; How do you make the PB image the focal point and not the shape?
I looked on this as the Challenge and not the Shape
Very clever of you, I hope I have done my PB image some justice.
I would love to BE PART of your DT.

Mel said...

well just posted my second entry which turned out better I think...who knows maybe I try again as you say 3 times lucky ;)
