May - Anything Goes

Good morning everyone, it's a new month so time for our May challenge and this month our theme could not be simpler..........

********Anything Goes********

As always you can use any make of stamp and enter up to three times, but we must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, this means:

Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest

The one exception is Penny Black Stickeroos, but strictly no digi images. 


Penny Black invite you to explore their creative world and see for yourself why their rubber stamps, stickers, beautiful papers for scrapbooking, cardmaking and stamp crafting are everyone’s favourites. Their products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects ever.
