August challenge

Welcome to our August challenge where this month we have a nice and easy theme of............

********Use your 'current' favourite stamp********

We added the word 'current' the the theme as if you are anything like the Design Team you always have new facourites each time you get some new stamps.

Please can I remind you we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image which reflects the theme as the focal element of your artwork , this means:

Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest
