What Stamps Can I Use?

If you own Anything designed by Elisabeth Bell, You're in luck... you can use it here.  That means whether it's an actual rubber stamp, or a digital one.  We love seeing Elisabeth Bell's beautiful designs. 
"If Elisabeth Bell Drew It.... You Can Use It"

Combining Stamps/Images

Your Elisabeth Bell image CAN be combined with other images, HOWEVER..... the Elisabeth Bell image must ALWAYS be the main image and focal point on your creation.

Lets face it, we all like to mask, and add extra things here and there, this is okay, as long as your Elisabeth Image is taking center stage.

Can We Alter The Images?

The answer is NOOOOOOOO...  Sorry, but PLEASE DO NOT alter any of Elisabeth Bells designs.  Masking and combining is okay, but what I mean by NOT ALTERING, is Please DO NOT switch bodies, heads, or anything of that nature on any of Elisabeth Bell's Illustrations.

Qualifying for Prizes

Your card or project must always clearly show what the challenge theme is.  Please do not enter something that barely fits into the challenge.

Your card/project should be posted on your blog, and linking back to the Elphine House Australia Challenge. And then entered here in the linky tool... 
Failure to follow these rules will result in the DT not commenting on your post, and/or having your entry deleted.
We ask that you please abide by Elisabeth's Angel Policy.  See Below!

We can't wait to have you join us for some fun....
