Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - April 2020

 Today sees the start of our new challenge.

For the month of April 2020 the challenge is:

Due to the current coronavirus situation the world has become a very worrying place.  In times like this us crafters are so lucky as we have our crafting to help get us through the difficult times.

Ching-Chou Kuik would like to give a new image away to everyone that enters the Blog or Facebook Challenge this month.  The image is called "Calla Lily Valley - Greyscale".

NB:  For anyone that enters the Blog of Facebook Challenge in April they will be sent this image once the challenges have closed.

Below you will see a card that Geesje, Blog DT Member has used using the free image that you will get if you enter this month's challenge:
Here is a card that Bonnie, Blog DT Member created using the free image:
As you can see two very beautiful cards made with the free image so why not play along with the challenge this month so you too can have this gorgeous free image.

The "rules" of the monthly challenge are very basic and can be found in the blog sidebar or in a page at the top of the blog.

It would be lovely if you could play along with the challenge this month.
You might or might not be aware but they have been some stunning additions to the Etsy Store recently and these include:
This image is called "Sakura in March".

In this set you will get a black-and-white image and a greyscale image. 
This image is called "Starry Wish".

In this set you will get a black-and-white image and a partially coloured image by Ching-Chou Kuik herself. 
This image is called "Dahlia - Greyscale".

In this set you will get a darker greyscale image and a lighter greyscale image.

There is an amazing array of beautiful digital stamps in the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Etsy Store.

Why don't you pop on over and take a look?
 There is also a Facebook Group where all new members are very welcome. The Facebook Group can be found HERE.  Here crafters will share their creations made with a Ching-Chou Kuik image.  On the Facebook Group there will also be the details of the monthly Facebook Challenge and details of any sales etc.
  Ching-Chou Kuik is now a proud sponsor over at the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Group.

Why not pop on over and take a look. 
  Over at Kit and Clowder you will find details of various on-line classes that you can buy and participate in.  Ching-Chou Kuik is one of the sponsors.  

If you want to find out a bit more about colouring techniques pop on over to Kit and Clowder and have a look.
To enter this challenge you need to use a rubber stamp or digital stamp (black-and-white/grayscale or partially pre-coloured). 
Just coloured in images are NOT allowed.
NO fully digital cards are allowed. 

Please remember when linking to this challenge you MUST link to your blog post and not just your actual blog.  

As you have taken the time to create something to enter into the challenge the Design Team members like to leave you comments but this is made more difficult when they have to look through your blog to find the right card/creation to comment on.  

Thank you for your understanding.
