No Patterned papers

Lovely to see so many interpretations of the handbags and gladrags theme - winner announcement at the end of the post

This week we want to challenge you to make something using no patterned papers - which really means using your own talents to make backgrounds etc using whatever you have to hand - inks, stamps, embossing techniques etc.

As always the team have produced some stunning stuff - and first here is our guest designer Kerstin

Kerstin is a bit of a shy babe so we don't ave a photo of her but here's a little she sent us about herself.

I'm Kerstin a 39 years old housewife from Dortmund in Germany . Designing and creating cards and ATC's is one of my favorite hobbies, which takes a good part of my time. I don't mind whether it's cute or non-cute cards. I chose the Embossing-Techniques on my example card, because i like it very much and fits well to the topic of the Challenge. I hope you like the design example.

Brilliant Kerstin and heres the rest of the team







As always brilliant and varied stuff! and now to last weeks winner. The random generator has worked his magic and chosen no.........................

Number 11
