TIO #58 - The East - continued a second week

I have decided to run this challenge for another week to give more of you an opportunity to win this FABULOUS sheet of stamps... Same rules apply so ENJOY!!

Well, here we go again, finally. It is ages since a tag appeared here, so I am DELIGHTED to have something special again for you... a lovely guest whose work I admire greatly, and I featured on the Inspirational Blog a few weeks ago... I have her to thank for the wonderful grunge paper rose I learned to do and brought here to share with you!!! So welcome to Jo of JoZart                     

   tada!!!!

Never one to do things by halves I have made a concertina based card with tags. The images are the two Chinese tots which are on the new"Elements of the Orient " plate that I designed for www.stampattack.co.uk. Caz, who manufactures the stamps, kindly offers the plate to whoever is selected from the challenge entries.

I've selected "the East" as the theme so it can be Japanese, Chinese or whatever it represents to you, the challengers, but let's get away from the traditional red, black and gold as a colour scheme.

I enjoy demonstrating at shows, in UK and Germany and I design stamps for Stampattack. I also teach workshops around the Merseyside area and have a special interest in background techniques and folded card structures, many of which can be shared on my blog.

How very beautiful these are, and the plate is so gorgeous... you have the opportunity to WIN it and here it is for you to drool over!!!! Thanks to Jo for getting it for us...

So, over to you lovely people and I know you will rise to Jo's challenge, but don't forget to include at least one really truly stamp and ENJOY!!!

It took literally hours to get to this point of posting. I don't know what is happening to our internet server, but I'm ready to pull my hair out. I may not be able to comment, but I'll really try to visit all the entries.
