include bling of any kind. This weeks challenge is open to Stampotique Originals

Welcome our November Guest Designer

We are very excited about our November Guest Designer here at Stampotique Designer's Challenge this week.  She is someone you may or may not be familiar with. You may even have some of her fabulous stamps in your collection.  Please welcome one of Stampotique Originals own stamp artist, Janet Klein.  Janet will be joining us here for our challenges this month as well as sharing her work over on our sister blog, Stampotique Originals Designer's Blog.

Janet has been drawing all her life.  She is an elementary art specialist inspiring over 800 children a week.  Janet is the art teacher that we all wish we had had when we were in school.  Not only is she great with children, but she also teaches art education classes to teachers and  taught for Stampotique when it had a retail shop.

Janet has two “sides” to her rubber stamp images; the ‘flower girl’ images, which are tongue and cheek and her beautiful vintage photographic images of her family and her husband’s family.  Janet’s work has been published in most of the industry magazines as well as in Tweety Jill Publications books. 

Janet resides with her husband Jess, and their adorable doodlesPhoebe and Humphrey

Please give Janet a warm welcome to the group and if you've used Janet's stamps, collect them or are just seeing them for the first time, let us know which one is your favorite.
