Thanks to everyone that played in last week’s challenge, The Birds. This week’s challenge is quite challenging! Our movie is Mr & Mrs Smith OR Spy Theme.
Now don’t forget, our challenges are based around movies and it will be an EITHER-OR-BOTH type of challenge. You can EITHER use the movie Mr & Mrs Smith as inspiration OR use Spy theme. You may want to even kick it up a notch and use BOTH! We challenge YOU to come out and play with us 🙂

A BIG THANK YOU goes to Ro, our March guest designer, Ro. It’s been fabulous having her create with us this month!
Here’s Ro’s take on our challenge.

Design Team Throwdown ~ Challenge #1

***If you’re looking for our most recent challenge #119 – Grease, please click here or scroll down***

Happy Sunday!!
Many of you know some of the Drunken Stampers participated in the Smeared and Smudged Design Team Throwdown.

We didn’t win the first round but the next challenge will be posted later today and we’ll be on that one pretty quick!

As we only sent 3 projects to the Throwdown, we just wanted to share all the projects that were made. Everyone did an amazing job and it was really difficult to choose which 3 projects to send!!

CHALLENGE #1
PAINT and SPLATTER
Your project must contain an element of paint and an element of something splattered. You can combine the two elements if you choose. Bring your A-game, use your imagination and throw down!

We had participation from both teams and Drunken Stampers enthusiasm all round!

In no particular order…
