March's Creative Challenge - Springtime

 A huge thank you to everyone who joined in last month's challenge. All of the creations were {love}ly!
This month's challenge is Springtime, and can be interpreted any way you like, as long as it has rubber stamping in it. 
To join in with this challenge (we are limiting the challenge entries to 3 per person), is simple; all we would like you to do is, make a piece of artwork, making sure that you include the theme and some rubber stamping. Pop back here to link up using the Inklinkz at the bottom of this post, so that we can see what you've made and then, leave us a comment to let us know you have joined in with the challenge.
 As always, there will be candy for one randomly picked entrant - the winner will receive a stamp of their choice from The Artistic Stamper .

In addition, you can enter the same challenge on Facebook!

To join us on just go to our new Facebook group, and send us a request to join..  There will be a prize for the Facebook challenge, as well as the blog challenge!
And don't forget....if you use The Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry, you will entered into the draw, twice! To get you started here is some creative gorgeousness from some of the team....

To celebrate the springtime coming, I have made a tag from a pizza box I have painted with dark gesso. The paper was backgrounded with Distress inks, and flowers stamped and stenciled, and then cut out stamped flowers added.

I used the following materials from the Artistic Stamper:
Dog Rose © Lesley MatthewsonLesley's Flowers size A6 © Lesley MatthewsonSunflowers © Lesley Matthewson
 Framed Words #1
 The Artistic Stamper Flowers & Leaves long © Lesley Matthewson maskDistress Ink PadsArchival Ink - Wendy Vecchi

I have done a slightly different take on Springtime,
I used Dylusions paints on a tag and some scrap pieces of paper
I have used the following stamps:
Tick Tock Stamps
Decay Swirl Background Size A6 using Mown lawn Distress Ink
Mini Backgrounds 2 Size A6 using the mini Decay Swirl Background
I used the leaves from Lesley's Dog Rose Stamp Set
I made the spring using some jewellery wire i had and wound it around a pencil.
The letters were cut off some new washi tape
I shall look forward to seeing your creations this month

We hope that you will join in this month's challenge, and also join us on Facebook too.

We look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry.

Have a very creative month
