May challenge - Photo/colour inspiration

Welcome to our May challenge where this month we have some photo inspiration for you......................

You may choose to use the vibrant colours from the photo or maybe go with just Poppies, we look forward to seeing your takes on the inspiration.

As always you can use any make of stamp and enter up to threw times, but 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. Please note: If we do not comment on your entry it will be because it does not follow the theme, qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment on third party hosts such as Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Slipcoast. We do not want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who do follow the rules

Now for the lovely prizes on offer............

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.
