Challenge 85 - ANYTHING GOES!

Hi Stampers! Welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps Blog Challenge!

This is an exciting challenge for us because we are debuting with our new Design Team Members! We want to thank everyone who applied - it was very difficult to narrow it down. If you were not chosen this time, please don't let that discourage you from trying out in the future :)

We would like to introduce our newest Design Team Members whom you may recognize ;)

NIKKI STALKER - Who was our amazing December Guest Designer!

LYDIA EVANS - Lydia is a returning Design Team Member who was on our team previously!

LARELLE-SUSANNE THOMS - Who was our amazing September Guest Designer!

We also have our JANUARY Guest Designer debuting with us this challenge also! Please welcome:

Hello from Ontario, Canada! I’m very excited to have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer for Loves Rubber Stamps. I’ve had some kind of creative outlet since I can remember, but severe rheumatoid arthritis forced me to give up all of my hobbies. About five years ago, a friend introduced me to rubber stamping and I was so happy to discover it was something I could do; watercolouring is my favourite technique and one that I can easily manage, so I watercolour almost all images with a paintbrush and usually distress inks, but I also use twinkling H2Os, dye-based markers and watercolour pencils. My style has changed from clean and simple to incorporating more designer papers, but the one constant is that I love cute and whimsical characters that make me smile.

thanks again for this opportunity!

We had some really awesome projects last week!! The winner of our challenge will receive a gift voucher to shop in our store - Loves Rubberstamps!
