What, no colouring?! A new challenge over at Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps!

I nearly had conniptions when I saw this week's Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge #66 - no colouring!



What, really?!!!  So after I took a deep breath and stopped panicking, I came up with this....



Paper piecing - my saviour!!  I chose the three image stamps  and sentiment from the You Are So Sweet Karber clear Stamp set for SCRS and matched them up with these yummy papers from My Minds Eye Happier collection (from Quixotic Paperie here).

Our challenge is open to all players. Each week a random winner will be chosen to win their very own SCRS rubber stamp!  In order to qualify for a prize, you must use a Sparkle Creations image on your creation.  You can see more gorgeous DT inspiration here...



This month's featured character is Lucy with a 15% off offer!




I am entering my card into the following challenges:
