Stampotique Designers Challenge ~ Alter..

It's time for an exciting new challenge from Stampotique Originals.

Kate is our new hostess this week.. here is what she had to say..

January seems to be a time when many of us decide to use what we already have so with that in mind I challenge you all to alter something! It can be anything from a matchbox to a coaster, an old CD to an empty cardboard box. Have a good hunt around, see what you can find and give it the Stampotique treatment!

Here is my altered jigsaw piece/wall hanging..
 click to enlarge

The jigsaw piece was covered in Gesso and given the full treatment with Distress Inks and water. I had so much fun thinking about this piece and creating a magical evening scene.. great fun!

We hope you can join in with the Altered challenge.. one lucky random winner will win a $30 gift certificate.. so get out those gorgeous Stampotique stamps.. have fun!

Happy crafting, Gez.xx
