Sunday Stampers - Week 18 - Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves!

Good morning and happy Sunday to you all!

I will start proceedings by announcing the winner of last weeks Blog Candy and also saying thank you to Cynthia for being my first Guest Designer on the Sunday Stamper Challenge.

A fair few of you joined in last weeks challenge and all of your creations are really special...so thank you for joining in.

Now without further ado......the winner is......

Ah, I think I will post this weeks challenge first LOL :O))

You will have guessed that the theme this week is Sisters. Whether you have one or not (in my case, I haven't) I am sure you all have some stamps in your collections that you can use to make something either for a sister or featuring sisters. Go for it and enjoy!

Here is my effort for this week:






I used a large piece of stampbord and a lovely Lost Coast Designs stamp along with distress inks, and Studio G alpha stamps. I also used a metal file to distress the edges of the stampbord and a scatchy tool to make the little.... er....scratches on the surface of the design!










I think that is all for this week....mmmm, have I anything else to add? Ah yes! The winner of the Blog Candy, chosen at random, is......

*drumroll please*


Rachel P who has her CraftyIdeas Blog here.


Well done to Rachel and I will be contacting you today so I can pop your candy into the post :O))

All there is for me to say now is have fun, get inky and messy and please remember to add your link to this post so I can come and visit your Blog and look at all the lovely creations you have been making!

Lovely work Hels :-D
I've got weeks 15, 17 and 18 in my PB now. The 'boy' card has shadow due to the little animals and it being scanned. Ended up just doing simple stamping for the sisters as it was my 3rd attempt - made a mess of the lettering on the 1st and wasn't happy with the colours on the 2nd
