Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - October 2018

Today is a VERY special day for the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge Blog and Facebook Group as we are FOUR years old.

It's been an AMAZING time.  

Ching-Chou Kuik during this time has created a plethora of stunning images for us to craft with.  

We have seen Design Team Members/Design Team Leaders leave but that has then left space for new Design Team Members.

As it is such a wonderful time for us we would like to pass this onto you.

To celebrate there will be: 

FOUR Random winners on the Blog 
The usual Artist Choice Award winner on the Blog 
FOUR Random winners on the Facebook Group 
The usual Artist Choice Award winner on the Facebook Group 
The usual two Top 2 winners on the Facebook Group 

as well as a FREE image for everyone that enters the Blog Challenge or the Facebook Challenge. 
 You will get a black-and-white image for you to colour but this photo shows you the image you will receive.  She is called "Fresh Blue".  It is a beautiful image that Ching-Chou Kuik has given for these celebrations. 

Here are some creations made by some of the Design Team Members to show you some ideas on how to use the free image available for those that enter either the Blog Challenge or Facebook Challenge:
With all those extra prizes on offer and the chance of receiving a free image you certainly all need to come and enter the challenge here on the Blog and also the Facebook Challenge this month!!

Please note: 
The free image will be given at the END of both the Blog Challenge and the Facebook Challenge. 
Did you see the post yesterday detailing all of September's winners.

If not, please pop by HERE and have a look.
Today sees the start of another challenge.

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 "Poppy in Blue".  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 "Fall for You".  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 "Drifting Soul".  In this set you will get a black-and-white image and a partially coloured image by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.
This set is called "Sweet and Spooky Halloween".  In this set you will get three grayscale images called "Pick a Pumpkin", "Halloween Trio" and "Exotic Halloween".

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. 

Don't forget if you would like to be a Guest Designer for a forthcoming challenge please remember to add "GDT" after you name in the Linky Tools or add a comment in the comment box.

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.

I just realized that my entry #10 isn't a Halloween card. However, I cannot delete it. Can you do that for me?
