Challenge # 15 Oriental

Thanks so much to the many, many people who joined us for our 'distress' challenge. This time we're going all 'oriental', a theme the talented design team have interpreted in some beautiful ways.

This week we also welcome a brand new team member! Lisa O enjoys scrapbooking and photography as well as gardening and can be found in her Craft Garden regularly :)  Her debut project is just stunning:

Have fun going all oriental over the next two weeks and leave some love on the DT blogs when you bob over to see how they made their wonderful creations. You have until 9.00 pm on the 10th February to link your project below. The winner receives a £10 gift voucher to spend at The Stampman.  We have an 'oriental kit' available for only £7.50 over at The StampMan shop if you fancy playing around with some papers and embellishments, or check out our oriental section for stamps available in this theme. Our next challenge, starting 11th February, the month of love, is 'hearts' with the gorgeous Lisa Sparkle.

We are looking forward to visiting you to see what you have made.
