Let's Ink It Up Challenge #3

Another fortnight has flown by and here we are again with our 3rd Challenge at Let's Ink It Up I can't believe how quickly this is going. Thank you to everyone who wowed us with their tags and bookmarks with a vintage twist they were amazing.

Our challenge this time is ..............Use your favourite stamp with a twist - use a charm too.

We are lucky enough to have another fab sponsor, Caroline from Carolines Rubber Stamps is offering our lucky winner a £20 voucher for her shop

So come on, get out your favourite stamps and get inky with us!! Don't forget we are a rubber/clear stamping challenge, No digistamps allowed, you must use a rubber/clear stamp as the focal point of your project.

This challenge is open for PLAYERS CHOICE, just enter your project, leave a comment at the bottom of post suggesting a theme you would like to see hosted. If you are randomly chosen your will feature on the challenge that your chosen theme is used. Please check out the Players Choice page for full details.

Now for my card....................

............well it shouldn't be any surprise to you that my favourite stamp is a Magnolia one - Silent Night Tilda. Yes, I know she is a Christmas one but I thought I would try something different - I am very pleased with the result too. Here is a closeup.....................

........................and what do you think of the flowers? I finally remembered to add the charm which is the twist for this challenge ..... after having taken my photos and almost sending it to my team leader - DOH!!!!!

Please check out my team mates for some more inspiration their links are on my sidebar.
I look forward to seeing your favourite stamps everyone.
