Announcing the 2017 Sin City Inspiration Team!

First of all: a special THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who auditioned! 
We were amazed to see so many talented people apply for our inspiration team!
 We loved seeing your work, visiting your blogs and learning about YOU!
 If we could, we would accept everyone who tried out, 
but alas we had limited spots open on the team.

In 2017 we are excited to show you how you can incorporate rubber stamping into a variety of mixed media designs!  Our team will be challenged to think 'out side' the box. 
This includes categories like: art journaling, scrapbooks, jewelry, fabric art, collage, mixed mediums  and more!
 We will provide inspiration for you to use in your everyday life, home, office and gift giving idea's!.

 Please help us welcome the new  (worldwide) 2017 Sin City Inspiration Team!

She loves anything quirky and out of the ordinary and loves to add humour and a different “view” to her creations. She believes all stamps should be versatile and have many uses – not just the subject  they were necessarily intended for!

Karen Sessions

She has enjoyed a lifetime of creative hobbies including: sewing, ceramics, jewellery making, calligraphy, and knitting.  She began rubber stamping as a teenager in the late 80's because drawing was never in her talent portfolio. Her current loves are scrapbooking, card making, and mixed media. Karen describes her creative style as embellished, girly, layered, and full of textures.

loves the freedom to use all kinds of media in her art work. Her style is mostly Dark Art, Vintage or Steampunk, and she is always looking for new techniques to learn. Monique enjoys coloring art and travel journals. She enjoys making tags and altering items.

He enjoys all forms of paper crafting. When pressed, he admits that mixed media is his favorite but also loves card making, art journaling, banner making and scrapbooking. 
 Do not be surprised if you see dark and steampunk one day, then bright and whimsical the next, all using the same stamp set. Adam says it is all in the embellishments in creating the mood of each piece.
We are looking forward to seeing what new and creative uses he will have for our collection.
