Challenge 30


Welcome to August Clarity crafters!

********

July was a busy month for Barbara with the Crowborough workshops, hope you had fun if you were part of them.  There is another week of workshops in August so we've not seen any of the artwork so as not to spoil it for them, but look forward to seeing it all after they have finished.

There isn't a show on Create and Craft this month due to life and work pressures so hope you can do something crafty in it's place instead as you've already put the time aside!

Why not pop over to Barbara's blog or watch one of her YouTube videos again and revisit some of the older techniques?

********


The lucky winner of the £50 Clarity voucher and our top 5 will be announced on Monday. Will you be one of the lucky winners?

********

Here's the theme for our new challenge which will run throughout August:

Bingo
(using Clarity stamps/stencils ONLY)

For those that enter challenges regularly you will be familiar with this challenge, but for everyone else this one needs a bit of explaining.  Don't worry though there are no bingo dabbers needed!

As with a traditional game of bingo, or tic tac toe, you need to meet certain criteria but there are several options available to you.  

Choose any 3 in a row either vertically, horizontally or diagonally from the board above or alternatively choose all four corners or even attempt the full house.  Still confused, then have a look at the design teams inspiration.

Please let us know which line you've used and always remember to read the rules to avoid your entry being disqualified.

Good luck with the challenge!!

  1. How interesting! - I've not come across this type of challenge before but I think it's a great idea - I like that it's open to all sorts of possibilities, as demonstrated by the great Design Team examples. It might live up to the name and be quite challenging, but I'm looking forward to having a go. Eyes down, look in!!
