This week it's the turn of the very lovely Kaz to set a brand new challenge over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog.. this weeks challenge is something new..
Here is what Kaz has to say... I am just a little bit nosey, so for this challenge I'd like you to use something that Santa brought you! Don't worry if you didn't get crafty stash, just use something that you recently bought for yourself. If you really want to, you could make something with the theme of something new as well. Just make sure you enjoy making it.
Well, sadly, I didn't get any new crafty stash for Christmas or anything else for that matter but that's life!! What I did get and it was something I DEFINITELY wasn't expecting after losing my mobile phone down a toilet was to receive a new one last week... oh no, another learning curve!!! I am now the proud and reluctant owner of a Windows phone.... Of course, every new phone needs a new phone case.. so as we've had no internet it's given me time to 'tart' up my new case and I LOVE IT!!
I hope you like it too..
Of course, I didn't stop there and included an atc to the front of my case.. it fitted PERFECTLY!
The atc is lovely and sparkly as I used gel pens but as usual it's difficult to make it show up especially at this time of the year! I used the gorgeous mermaid.. called Ocean by Linda Peterson.. you can see more of Linda's fabulous designs HERE.
The background was created using acrylic paints and the Gelli plate and the little stars are from the Design Cube by France Papillon.. all of which are available from the Stampotique Originals online STORE in the US and from A sprinkle of imagination and The Stamp Attic to mention just two of my favourite stores in the UK.
I hope you can join us for this weeks challenge, please remember each challenge is open until the end of the month and two lucky winners will be picked by random to each win a $30 gift certificate. Good Luck!
Happy creating, Gez
