Drawing Competition 2020

We are all without doubt, looking forward to life getting back to ‘normal’ but we’re pretty sure each one of you will have one thing in particular that you are looking forward to more than anything esle.
We have decided to make the theme of our competition

'I can't wait to...'

Perhaps there is a particular place you want to visit, a friend or family member you can’t wait to see, an event you can‘t wait to celebrate, a sport you can‘t wait to play, a dinner party you can’t wait to host. What ever it is, we’d love you to share yours in the form of an illustration.

THE PRIZE
Over the next few weeks, we will enjoy picking our favourites to turn into stamps and post to the winners!

All entrants will be rewarded with a 10% discount code!

YOU WILL NEED
A plain, smooth sheet of white paper
A fine, black felt tip pen or biro

TO ENTER
Tag us in a post of your drawing on Instagram or post a picture on our Facebook page.

This competition is open to all ages, young and old!

If you are entering a child’s drawing, please add their age and name.

TOP TIPS
Use the full page - drawing large scale works best.
If you want to draw in pencil first, go over your final image in black pen and rub out any unwanted lines.
If you add text, make sure it’s clear and not too small.
We will shrink your drawing down so think about how that will translate.  Shading may look good but when it’s shrunk down to stamp size, it could just look black.
Be inspired by artists and designers but make sure your final piece is your own work.
