Challenge 25 - Sketch

Good morning!  We're back with our new challenge.  We've a fun sketch for you to use on your projects - you are free to rotate/flip the sketch, but we must be able to see the sketch in your finished project.  You MUST use at least one Waltzingmouse image, sentiment or digi.  Here are a couple of inspiration cards for you.

You have until Thursday 4th September, 5.00pm BST, (Noon EDT) to link up your project.  Have fun!!

Before we go, there is the small matter of picking a winner from the last challenge - we had 5 stonking entries - our followers are small in quantity but the quality of entries is always high!   We picked just one winner this time and our number one fan is therefore Claire A with her stunning colouring of her white embossed camelia with lots of lovely background texture to match.   Do take your winners badge for your blog Claire.

Challenge 24 - Make Your Mark

Hi!  Sorry we're a little late but the summer is a bit busy with holidays.  As we only had 2 entrants for last challenge, we didn't think it fair to pick a winner so we're declaring it a tie!  Please both go ahead and take your winners badges ladies.

We're back today with something a bit different - no colours, no sketch, but for the next couple of weeks we would like you to:

Make Your Mark
By that we mean use your markers - any variety of  paints, pens or colouring medium

Our only restriction is that you MUST use at least one Waltzingmouse image, sentiment or digi on your project.  If you don't have any stamps Claire has kindly provided a number of freebies here.  There are images, projects, cut files and a sentiment too.  Here are a couple of inspiration cards from Tara and I to get you going:

You have until Thursday 21st August, 5.00pm BST (Noon EDT) to link up your creations.  We're really looking forward to seeing what you make.  Don't forget to spread the word to other Waltzingmouse Fanatics.  Have fun!!

Challenge 23 - Colours

Hello everyone - time for our new challenge at Waltzingmouse Fanatics.  I think we foxed you a bit with our sketch last time, so hopefully you'll all find these colours much more inviting!  Very bright, very summery!  Isn't that a fabulous graphic too?  You must use at least three of the colours from the graphic, although we'd love to see you use them all!  You must also use at least one Waltzingmouse image, sentiment or digi on your project.  Here are a couple of inspiration cards from Tara and I, you can find full details of our blogs.

Both Tara and I love Waltzingmouse Stamps, indeed are fanatical about them!!!  If you know other fans, do spread the word about this challenge - we'd love for you to play along with us.

Before we go - there's the little matter of a winner for the sketch challenge.  As numbers were low again last challenge, we just picked one winner - and that was Cathy C - a beautiful interpretation of the sketch I'm sure you'll all agree.

When you've had a play with our new colours, link them up here by 10pm on 7th August.   YOU MUST USE WALTZINGMOUSE PRODUCTS TO ENTER THIS CHALLENGE - it is a fan challenge for this brand of stamps and you must use them to join in.
