Challenge Chewsday - Just Add Stamps!

This week's challenge over at Just Add Ink seemed like a bit of a no-brainer at first glance....

Just add stamps.  Okay, so that's what I would have been doing anyway, where's the challenge in that..?!

Then of course once I took the time to read past the title of the post, I realised that the emphasis was on the just.  As in nothing but stamps.

No DSP, no ribbon, no buttons or brads, no punches or die cuts, no fancy schmancy techniques, just stamps and the cardstock they are placed upon.

Once I got going with my idea (and managed to bust it out in no more than three and a half  minutes) I realised that the JAI gals might be onto something...

While I love nothing more than getting a swag of new products and things to play with (got some just last week from the upcoming Autumn-Winter mini catalogue in fact - ssshhhhhhhh!!) there's something to be said for heading back to the bare basics of stamps, ink and cardstock.

And the time factor - or lack of time taken - is a definite bonus!  I'm heading off to make some more of this particular design to send out randomly in the next week or so.

Check back over the next couple of days, as I just realised how close we're coming to the end of March, and therefore the end of Sale-a-bration AND the Summer Mini!  I think this may just have been my favourite ever mini and I have some things to show you that I haven't managed to get up here yet, so tune in for a last minute flurry of Summer Mini activity in the coming days...
