October challenge - Warm Autumn colours

Welcome to our October challenge wither this month we have a very seasonal theme for you.....

********Warm Autumn Colours********

Usual rules apply, you can enter up to three times, combine with other challenges, use any make of stamp......but can I please remind you.......

We are a stamping challenge so we must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, it can be a stamped image/s, large sentiment or quote.........the one exception are Penny Black Stickeroos. But no digi images and entries using them WILL NOT be eligible for prizes or GDT spots. It so upsets us to see names come out in the draw who are not eligible for a prize because they have not read the rules. 

I feel the need to explain why the DT are unable to comment on some entries - we are seeing an increasing number of entries on third party hosted sites - i.e. not conventional blogs. Usually these entries have no product details or explanations, often no link to our challenge and invariably require those commenting to sign up to the host site. The DT do a sterling job visiting entries, but in future will not spend valuable time trying to find a team member who just might be able to access one of these sites.

Penny Black invite you to explore their creative world and see for yourself why their rubber stamps, stickers, beautiful papers for scrapbooking, cardmaking and stamp crafting are everyone’s favourites. Their products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects. If you would like to be one of the first to hear about new products from Penny Black please click here to join the free club, plus their Facebook is full of activity and news.
