August 2016 Challenge

Our theme is always Anything Goes: use loose glitter, embossing powder, and/or flocking.



If you use glitter, it must be loose glitter.  Therefore the following are NOT eligible: glitter pens, glitter markers, glitter glue, pre-glittered papers, pre-glittered embellishments.    Use any image, digital or a rubber, to create your submission.  


The Top Three winners will each receive two digis of their choice and the Random.org winner can choose one digi of his/her choice.  All participants also receive a badge that can be displayed on their blogs.  SNS Featured Artists also receive special recognition.

Want to be a SNS Featured Artist? 
It's easy - just use any SNS image (rubber or digital) and submit it below.  You will be featured on the SNS Facebook page as well as our monthly Winners' Post.  You never know when we're going to have extra prizes for our Featured Artists.  
Sometimes we may give you advance notice and sometimes you may not know until the winners are announced - so you'll want to participate every month!

~~~~~~~~~
We have five new stamp sets to share with you today.  These new sets are 20% off until the 3rd of the month.  So once you finish the blog hop, head on over to the store and start shopping.  All of the new sets are available on cling mounted rubber or as a digital image.
