December - Traditional Christmas colours

Morning everyone, time for our last challenge of 2018, a rather scary thought, so lets make it a good one with the theme of...................

*****Traditional Christmas Colours******

That means we we would like to see Red, Green, Gold, Silver and White or any combination of those five colours on your work, much as we love the more contemporary colours entries using those will I'm afraid not be eligible for this theme.

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. 


Explore the creative world of Penny Black and see for yourself why our rubber stamps, stickers, beautiful papers for Scrapbooking, Cardmaking and Stamp Crafting are everyone’s favourites. Our products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects ever.
