CHALLENGE 1 - 2017

ANYTHING GOES

To make an easy start.... create anything you wish, with any theme that strikes your fancy.....
the only rule is it must have stamps stocked by
DE STEMPELWINKEL on it somewhere!

Please keep the emphasis on STAMPING..... using a DE-STEMPELWINKEL stocked stamp as your main feature, (please read through the rules on the sidebar) you can create anything you wish...
for example... a card, an ATC, art journal page, 3D item, altered art,home decor, tags, to name but a few. DE-STEMPELWINKEL stocks such a huge, diverse range of stamps that you'll never be short of the 'right' stamp for a project.

We shall run this challenge for 1 MONTH, so if you need to order something there is enough time left to enter your work.


Here is a little inspiration for you from the designteam:

New plans for 2017 / Nieuwe plannen voor 2017

In 2017 I want to bring this challenge blog back to life. I have discussed it with my designteam, and together we decided that there will be a new challenge every MONTH , starting on the 15th of each month. That means that you will have a whole month to send us your artwork.
We will try to keep the themes simple, so it will be easy to join the challenge.
You can use any stamp you want, BUT the MAIN IMAGE still HAS TO BE A STAMP SOLD BY DE STEMPELWINKEL! (De Stempelwinkel, Enchanted Ink, Fusion Art Stamps, Non Sequitur, Cherry Pie, Stampscapes, Designs by Ryn) Also stamps that I used to sell (Rubberstampave, Sutterstamps, Dylusions stamps) are allowed. If you do not have a stamp from De Stempelwinkel there is time enough to order one or two, that is the advantage of a monthly challenge.
The designteam will vote for a winner. Each designer makes a top 3. Number one will get 3 points, number two gets 2 points and number three gets 1 point. Experience has shown that each designer has a different view on the artwork, and by choosing 3 entries the outcome is often surprising me.
We all think this is a better way than having a winner chosen at random by a machine.
To be able to choose a winner there will have to be AT LEAST 5 ENTRIES
The winner will receive a credit of 10 euro to shop with in one of the internetshops (www.De-Stempelwinkel.nl or www.Stampscapes.nl or www.nonsequiturstamps.com)
or in the shop in Eefde or at a show.
As before you can send in as many entries as you want, as long as you are using one or more stamps from De Stempelwinkel.
The designteam will make some examples for each challenge to inspire you.
The winner will be announced on the first of each month in the reminderpost for the next challenge.


In 2017 wil ik dit challengeblog weer tot leven brengen. Ik heb dit met mijn designteam besproken, en samen hebben we besloten dat er elke MAAND een nieuwe challenge zal komen, beginnend op de 15e van elke maand. Dit betekent dat je een hele maand hebt om ons je werk te sturen.
We zullen proberen de thema's eenvoudig te houden, zodat het makkelijk is om deel te nemen aan de challenge.
Je kunt elke stempel gebruiken die je wilt, MAAR de BELANGRIJKSTE STEMPEL MOET nog steeds EEN STEMPEL ZIJN DIE VERKOCHT WORDT DOOR DE STEMPELWINKEL! (De Stempelwinkel, Enchanted Ink, Fusion Art Stamps, Non Sequitur, Cherry Pie, Stampscapes, Designs by Ryn) Ook stempels die ik in het verleden verkocht heb (Rubberstampave, Sutterstamps, Dylusions stamps) zijn toegestaan. Als je geen stempel van De Stempelwinkel hebt dan is er tijd genoeg om er één of twee te bestellen, dat is het voordeel van een maandelijkse challenge.
Het designteam zal stemmen voor een winnaar. Elke designer maakt een top 3. Nummer één krijgt 3 punten, nummer twee 2 punten en nummer drie krijgt 1 punt. Ervaring heeft geleerd dat elke designer anders naar de inzendingen kijkt, en door 3 inzendingen te kiezen is de uitslag vaak verrassend.
We vinden allemaal dat dit een betere manier is dan de winnaar bij toeval te laten kiezen door een machine.
Om een winnaar te kunnen kiezen moeten er MINIMAAL 5 INZENDINGEN zijn.
De winnaar krijgt een tegoed van 10 euro om mee te winkelen in één van de internetshops (www.De-Stempelwinkel.nl or www.Stampscapes.nl or www.nonsequiturstamps.com) of in de winkel in Eefde of op een beurs.
Net als voorheen kun je zoveel inzendingen insturen als je wilt, zolang je maar één of meer stempels van De Stempelwinkel gebruikt.
Het designteam zal voor elke challenge een paar voorbeelden maken om je te inspireren.
De winnaar wordt bekend gemaakt op de eerste van elke maand in de herinneringspost voor de volgende challenge.

A VERY BIG

SORRY

from our dear Blackdragon. She left for a caravan-vacation with no internet assuming she had posted the next challenge. But somehow she didn't! So all the hints in her posts are in vain, the challenge "Anything but a card" is not uploaded yet. 
She will post it on Sunday 21st of August, I hope that you will all join the challenge then. You can start working on your projects already, maybe you can even make more than one project for this challenge now that you have got more time.
We are looking forward to your creative ideas, please surprise us!
The winner of challenge 12 will also be announced on Sunday 21st.
