Bunch of Windmills for The Artistic Stamper

That's the November challenge over at The Artistic Stamper Creative Team ;)

I went to town and got out all nearly all! my Artistic Stamper backgrounds to make some windmills :)

I cut square pieces of card ranging in size from 3 inch by 3 inch to 5 by 5.
The added challenge given to the design team was to use Distress Stains in our work too.
I do believe they are on special offer here ;)
I used dried marigold and broken china to colour the back and front of the squares and then just stamped backgrounds with gay abandon LOL in a variety of inks over the top.....some Archivals...sepia, jet black, aquamarine, coffe and chrome yellow and some Distress Inks weathered wood, peeled paint, spiced marmalade, walnut stain and rusty hinge.

A couple of close ups of the backgrounds used.....the windmills are held together with a variety of brads including the screw top brads now back in stock over at the Artistic Stamper.

You really must take a look at the "Background" creations the rest of the team have made and here are the DT member links for you.
Alison, Hels, Jennie, Kat, Minxy Tina and Emma

Minxy is recovering from an operation at the moment so please send her some hugs and well wishes :)

So don't forget.............the monthly challenge is "Backgrounds"
The rules are simple... all you need to do is make a piece of art, be it a card, ATC, wall art, altered art, scrapling, a windmill perhaps LOL ;)... just remember that it must include some rubber stamping and the theme... and... if you use Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry you will be entered into the draw twice! The prize is £15 worth of stamps from the Artistic Stamper shop... along with the KlingOn to mount them onto.
I hope you get chance to play at the challenge... it is open until November 30th and the winner will be chosen by Random.org shortly after :)

Thanks for looking and happy stamping
xoxo Sioux
