The Ranger Designer Challenge

Paints, stamps, stencil by Dina Wakley
Butterflies from Papillon by Tim Holtz

I was totally honoured to be asked by Dina Wakley to create a canvas for this year's Ranger Designer Challenge at CHA. And I mean TOTALLY honoured :-)

I just love all of Dina's products anyway and use them all the time. For the challenge you are sent a selection of colours and products, and have to produce a canvas alongside 22 other selected artists. I love doing this, but boy! do I feel the pressure!

I got to play with Dina's lovely paints, her Textures rubber stamps, her large Queenie stencil, and also some Ranger texture paste. 

It is fun to see how different all of the entries to the challenge are ... You can see all of the canvases on the Ranger blog here, and on Dina's blog here.
