Who would like to win this?

....An Organza bag full of 70 metal charms is up for grabs..... read on to find out how.

After chatting to a friend yesterday about all the different colouring mediums and ink pads etc. it made me wonder how many different products we really NEED to craft with. So I set myself a challenge to create ATC's using only one white ATC card, one rubber stamp and one ink pad (I also allowed myself to use other items commonly found around the home to stamp with such as bottle lids, bubble wrap and bleach, plus printed words from the computer).

The challenge, if you choose to accept, is to create an ATC using only:
1 white ATC card
printed words
1 ink pad
1 rubber stamp
Homemade stamps (non crafting items found around the home that you can use to stamp with such as bottle lids, bubble wrap and bleach etc.)

Then email the picture to me at Karen@scrapz.co.uk by 9pm on Thursday 22nd May.
I will set up an anonymous voting poll - everyone will have a chance to cast one vote (voting for their favourite other than their own LOL!). Voting will end on Sunday 25th May and the one with the most votes will win the bag of charms :-)

Here are three ATC's I made this morning to show how I interpreted the challenge. I can't wait to see your creations :-)
