Just Add Ink #470..."No Stamping"



Happy Friday all ~

This week's challenge is going to challenge many of you, we're sure. Jo has asked us to use 'no stamping' on our projects this week. Hmmmmmm that should get you thinking.... try stretching your other supplies.... die cutting, heat embossing using stencils rather than stamping with versamark, layering papers & embellishments. Remember no stamped images, including heat embossed. Most important, have fun!

If you get stuck, feel free to leave a comment below & one of the team will clarify for you.
