Live your life in Colour ......

Happy Friday .......

It's the weekend ..... whoo hoo!!!  It's going to be a good one too.  I'm off to the Happy Stampers show at Port Sunlight tomorrow ........ keep your fingers crossed for good weather, and a calm sea!

Before all that though let's get in the weekend mood with this month's Craft Stamper Challenge

As always the theme is Anything Goes, as long as there's some rubber stamping on your project somewhere .... it couldn't be simpler.

There's prizes up for grabs too.  Our sponsor this month is ....... Imagine Design Create

and the challenge winner (randomly chosen) will receive 3 of their fabulous stamp sets ....  see below

We also have a Design Winner, chosen by the DT, and their prize will be .......
  • their winning project published in the Craft Stamper Magazine
  • they will be invited to be a Guest Designer on a future CS TIMI Challenge
  • and they'll have a Winner's Profile published on the CS Blog!
What are you waiting for!

I spotted this stamp on the Inkylicious website and I just couldn't resist ..... I love it!!!

I stamped the image onto some white cardstock and then used Pebeo Drawing Gum Masking Fluid to cover the zebras. You could cut yourself masks for each one but the fluid was quicker.
Once it was dry ..... it didn't take long ...... I used various colours of Distress Ink to create the background.

I simply brushed a different colour of ink over the top of each zebra, building up the depth of colour gradually.
Once I was happy with the colours I rubbed away the masking fluid and voila! ....... black and white zebras against a coloured background ...... love them!

I then added colour to just one of them using Picked Raspberry Distress, and splattered a little of the ink onto the background  ........ doesn't he look pleased to be pink!

The fabulous sentiment comes with the stamp and is so true ...... why not fill your life with colour, it's fun!

There's more colour on the inside of the card ......

A repeat of the Distress inks from the front ...... simply brushed onto the white card

and of course one of the zebras had to make an appearance .......

Now it's over to you.
Check out the Craft Stamper Blog for all the challenge details and more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day and have a lovely weekend.
If you're off to Port Sunlight tomorrow have a fabulous day .... spend loads!  I'll see you there ... hopefully!

Cheerio until next time .....
