February 2014 Challenge

All of January's Winners are announced here.

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

To be fair to everyone, if you use glitter, it must be loose glitter.  Please check the guidelines for things not eligible.  Basically, it's anything that already has glitter already added in or adhered to it beforehand.   Use any image, digital or a rubber, to create your submission.  We'd love it if you used one of the Sparkle N Sprinkle's images and become a Featured Artist. 

Before we get to the new Reveals and the wonderful creations by our Designers, there are a few clarification issues that need to be addressed:

- When using glitter, please use loose glitter.  To be fair to everyone, that means the following are NOT eligible (basically anything that already has glitter added in or adhered to it beforehand):
~ glitter pens
~ glitter markers
~ glitter glue
~ glitter paint
~ pre-glittered papers
~ pre-glittered embellishments

- Please be sure to include the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge link in your challenge list if you are entering the SNS Creative Challenge -- linking back to the SNS Challenge blog is a rule.

- If using embossing powder, please mention in your blog post which part of your project it's on.  Sometimes, it's very hard to tell from the photo.

Thanks so much for reading the above and for all your great submissions.  Please keep them coming as we love to see what you create!

Now on to the fun stuff.....

This month we have three new Reveals, all of which will be 20% off until February 3rd (no promo code needed).  
Mermaid Kisses #529

Spunky and Bug #523
Spunky and Rocco #526

For three chances to win one of these sets, please join us for the Mystery Designer Party being held on the SNS Blog going on from February 1-2 (the winners will be announced on February 3, so hurry on over once you've checked out all the great projects from the designers).  When you sign up for the Technique Video Kit Club, you will get Mermaid Kisses this month.

Since February is the month of LOVE, we thought we'd share a little extra LOVE with you and who doesn't LOVE getting something for free?  Everyone who uses any SNS image in the challenge this month will receive a free SNS Exclusive digi of their choice.  This is in addition to being one of our Featured Artists!
