In my blog post on Feb. 17, 2015 I posted that I had four cards published in the Spring 2015 issue of Stampington's Take Ten magazine. Stampington is allowing me to host a Take Ten giveaway on my blog. Three of the cards I submitted and that were published in this issue demonstrated both "Variation On a Theme" and were designed in response to one of Take Ten's Design Challenges. These are two features in the magazine I find very interesting.
On my page you can see my theme was golf. The Design Challenge was to use stripes---a long horizontal one above the focal point and a shorter one directly under the focal image.
Sharon Bridges designed cards featured in the "Different Point of View" section of the magazine. She uses the same stamp in 3 different ways. This is another one of my favorite features in the magazine. You can see Sharon's cards below:
I love doing challenges and I have been having fun participating in the daily challenges on Splitcoaststampers as well as submitting cards for publication. It's so validating to receive comments from fellow stampers and reaffirming when a card gets published.
And now to get to that GIVEAWAY:
Take Ten magazine is all about making a card in 10 minutes or less. Comment below with an answer to the question: Do you find it easy or challenging to complete a card within a time limit of 10 minutes? If you have difficulty posting a comment here, you can post your comment on my Facebook page. I will choose a winner on Tax Day, April 15th. Winner will be chosen by random drawing.
Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to your comments and good luck in the drawing.
