Hi All

This weeks challenge is Opposites Attract , As per usual you can use the title, or use opposites in your peice,  eg hot and cold, black and white, hard and soft, in and out to name but a few

This weeks challenge is Sponsored by Cherry pie Art stamps whos very talented and generous owner is Marina who was our guest designer for our week 2 challenge,

The prize this week is the winners choice of one of Cherry Pie Art Stamps Full stamp plates . To see the range that the winner can choose from Click HERE All stamped images in the examples are Cherry Pie Art Stamps

 A few words from our Sponsor

Cherry Pie was born in 1991 in Italy. At that time Europe was just beginning stamping and the request was for cute images or fancy borders to stamp on stationery.
That’s my beginnings too.
Shortly after I started reading RubberStampMadness and finding out there was a lot more to stamping than I had ever thought . So I started to make scenic stamps and then exploring new possibilities like reproducing the Masters…….. DaVinci, Michelangelo, Gustav Klimt, Munch, Dali……. it’s been a slow but enjoyable growing process. Meanwhile we also relocated in Florida in 2001.
Nowadays I have over 600 images, designed or edited by myself (Marina Lenzino).
I have just issued a bunch of new ones that can be found HERE

So here are this weeks design team examples

We would like to introduce and thank our guest designer for challenge 4, Vicki Parker. Who’s blog is HERE a word from Vicki
When I was asked to be guest designer I felt really honoured – little old me as a guest designer alongside ladies with such incredible talent! I am predominantly a digital scrapbook designer, but I started my crafting life making cards about 5 years ago. When I received my stamps from Cherry Pie Art stamps, I was forced out of my comfort zone. I’ve only used stamps for words really before and it’s not something that has previously appealed to me. However, I really enjoyed being forced to think outside the box!
I decided on two approaches for the stamps – the first was a card (which seemed the most obvious using stamps) and the art stamps lent themselves perfectly to a very simple black and white theme. Then, with the kind permission of Cherry Pie Art stamps, I scanned the stamped impressions and used them for a piece of hybrid art – a digital scrapbooking page. I love the way they turned out – it’s definitely something to consider for digital scrapbookers with a stamp stash from previous paper scrapping!

Brilliant examples from Vickie Fiona and  Susie this week.
So that’s it from us the rest is up to you , and we are looking forward to seeing more of your amazing work come in .

There are free downloable papers on our downloads page  which were designed by messing around with negatives and a project to create a melted baby wipe background on our project page

The design team and Vickie will be in the chatroom from 9pm till 10pm Tonight (Thursday)
The design team is in the chatroom every thursday night at that time however you can arrange to meet other entrants and crafts in our chatroom at times to suit yourselves. If we notice specific times and days becoming busy we will come and join in

  11. Sorry, this isn’t an entry but I’m not sure where elso to write it.
    Tracey, I saw your comment on my entry, and I was wondering if you tried hilighting the picture- you know, the way you hilight text- instead of right clicking. Once you hilight it, you should be able to hit “copy” on your web browser, or do “ctrl+c”. I hope it works-I’d really like to be in the slide show!

    I have stayed up late to make this, and the opposites are a cat and the fish, though they are in the fishbowl jammed on his head!
