Challenge #36 ~ 'Wings' Introducing SKATTYKATS & With Guest Designer CLAUDIA ROSA

This weeks challenge is 'Wings' and that is the perfect theme to introduce you to Skattykats who have just released their fantastic hand drawn "Stylised Ollies"

These cute & versatile owls can be used for both male & female cards. Sheet size is approx A6 and they are clear polymer stamps which are designed & manufactured right here in the UK. They come with their own carrier sheet, simply peel off required stamp & carefully place on to an acrylic block (purchased seperately) the stamp is self clinging, so no adhesive is needed. See exactly where you wish to stamp, no worrying about positioning!

You can purchase these stamps for an amazing £7.99 at the moment so in effect they are less than £1 per stamp - what a bargain!! ~ Click the Skattykats banner to buy yours

We also have another treat for you ~ the very talented Claudia Rosa is our guest designer for the 'Wings' theme. Here is her fantastic creation followed by a short bio from the lady herself
Hello! My name is Claudia Rosa. I am very excited about the invitation to be a guest designer for Arty Girlz!! I met my Canadian husband while he was working for a car company in Germany. When his contract was over I came back with him to the US. This was 6 years ago. We have two wonderful boys, 2 and 4 years old, who are the blessings in my life. I have been stamping for 4 years. I pretty much paper craft every day at least one hour - that helps me unwind from the day and relax. Visit me at my blog, Pretty Pressings, to see what I’ve been up to.

Katty from Skattykats was kind enough to send myself and Crissi a set of her gorgeous stamps so that we could use them in our examples this week

Here's Crissi's:

Here's Julie's:
