Let's Ink It Up Challenge #2

Well the first challenge was a success. You can see all the entries and the winners at the Let's Ink It Up Blog. Challenge # 2 is to make a tag. The twist is that it should have a Vintage feel to it. You can see all of the Design Teams tags on the Blog also.

Our sponsor for challenge #2 is from Close to My Heart and Carol Gomes, who has generously donated a prize package of a Stamp Set valued at $22.95 and she has also thrown in the s/h, how fantastic is that.

Here's a little about our sponsor

Close to my Heart is a leading manufacturer of My Acrylix Stamps, as well as a full line of papers, inks, markers and embellishments that all coordinate together. You can view tutorials and artwork at my website and if you live outside the US, you can e-mail me your orders and I will gladly get them shipping to you, as we do not sell directly outside the US and Canada at this time. I take MasterCard, Visa, Discover and PayPal. When you join my newsletter, you will receive 5 free layouts complete with cutting directions for both scrapbooking and cards. The link to my newsletter is

I made 2. They are different techniques but both use Distressed inks. There is also where I used one of those roses I had showed you that I made last month with a SU punch. Stamps are from I Brake for Stamps. The stencil is Heidi Swapp. I hope you join in and have some fun with us.

I won't be doing any challenges this week as usual. I will be studying for a test I will be taking to become Food Safety Certified so I can become a manager where I work. Wish me luck. I take the Pre-test this Tuesday, which I have to pass so I can take the real TEST next Tuesday. I will be back to challenging next week and need to work on the next project for Let's Ink It Up. So get busy. I can't wait to see what you make.
