Sketch and Stash Challenge #5

Welcome to Challenge 5 at Sketch and Stash! We would like to thank everyone for entering our double image sketch, they were all fantastic!

Our winner of the DCWV sticker stack is...Claire Mackaness, congratulations Claire! Please contact Becky with your address.

Our prize this week for one lucky person chosen at random is these lovely tapestry stamps, perfect for creating pretty backgrounds! To be in with a chance of winning please follow the sketch and let us know what your new, never used or neglected stash is.

Here is the sketch which we'd like you to follow this fortnight...

For the next 2 challenges we welcome the very talented Alison as our guest designer, we are thrilled to have her as her cards are always so gorgeous!!

We are also on the look out for our next guest designer and we will be picking from those who enter this challenge!

So here are the DT cards for some inspiration...


Alison has used her new papers from her Forever Friends decoupage pack and her gorgeous Messy rabbit stamp from Joanna Sheen.


Becky has used her neglected Anita's balloon stamp on her Forever Friends card.


Cathy has used one of her gorgeous Whiff of Joy stamps 'Willow with Sunhat' from the Spring stamp kit.


Chrissie has used her newly downloaded image called 'Pretty Window' available from Sketching Stamper.


Lisa has used her new Lili of the Valley papers and Pollycraft 'Curiosity' stamp.

We look forward to seeing your creations!

Love the Sketch and Stash Team!
