Challenge 7 Winged things July 31, 2008

Hi all

Now our challenge subject was chosen many weeks ago , and it seems as if many minds think alike as I know it has featured on a couple of other challenges recently, however I hope you still enjoy the challenge


So you can put wings on things, use things that already have wings, whatever the title inspires you to create

The challenge this week is sponsored by  Jennie of The Stamp Connection.

 A few words from Jennie

I started manufacturing rubber stamps about 15 years ago, and now The Stamp Connection manufactures The Artistic Stamper range of unmounted rubber stamps, and Kling-On repositionable cushioning. We have an online shop, where you can buy all of our range of stamps and more besides!

Jennie has provided us with this weeks great prize and a set of stamps for the design team, which we all enjoyed using, and know that you will too

Not just the beautiful and really useful butterfly and bugs stamps but Kling-on as well , So you don;t need to rush out to buy some if you have run out, and will get perfect impressions every time.

So here are this weeks design team examples

and our guest designer this week is Hels Sheridan, whos Gothic Arch is stunning,

Hels Sheridan is Creative Design Team Co-Ordinator at The Stamp Connection. Hels is married to Grim and has a fur baby cat called Alfie. Hels works full time as a train driver, so she finds her hobby helps her relax and unwind after a long day at work. She has been crafting for nearly six years now, something that started out as a little hobby has taken over and now is her passion! She loves nothing better than sitting playing with rubber stamps and getting inky and messy. She loves anything to do with Altered Art and says she is always on the look out for new items to alter.

Hels has recently designed a range of stamps called Stitchels, which can be purchased from The Stamp Connection and has a brand new Christmas collection due for release next month. Hels designed this Gothic Arch card using stamps from The Stamp Connection along with Adirondack inkpads and embellishments. She says herself she has a tendency to go for muted colours so this Arch is something a little different from her. To see other examples of Hels’ work you can visit her blog at

So thank you Hels for taking the time out of your busy schedule to fit in our challenge great job.

The project this week is a quicky on how to use kling on and scrap rubber to make our own abstract and background stamps, as per the Mosaic background and the Everyone has wings design in the design team examples .  You can find this quicky project  on the project page .

There are also some free papers available for download on a free Downloads page.

Fiona, Susie, and myself will be in the chatroom between 9pm and 10pm tonight Thursday UK time, pop in and have a chat

Winners are chosen by random number generator.

  15. Hi, I copied the code to my wordpad and it was totally accurate. When I copied it into my WordPress widget, it was scrambled a bit. I did the changes and saved it, but got the same results. I’ll try it again on another day and see what happens.
