Papelitos Challenge Blog

It has come to my attention tonight that there is a possibility that there may be a question about the ownership of the images being used and sold by the Papelitos Blog and Etsy shop. As I feel I must support the work of the 'real' artist where ever possible I have resigned immediately from the Papelitos Design Team and will no longer be using any of the images sent to me for future challenges.
I am sorry if my being a part of this team has in any way offended anyone but I hope you can be assured that I will always endeavour to make sure, if possible, that I only use images whose provenance can at least be confirmed via a reverse Google image search.
I am not saying that the images being used are stolen, but while there is a question hanging over the blog I just can not be a part of it.
Hugs 'n Stuff,


  1. You're the second or third person I've seen with a message like this... Hope it gets sorted out soon.

  2. Reading the stuff over the past couple of days I think this was a wise move Andy. I know she had been linking work to the site as entries without the person knowing about it.
    There are lots of weird people out there and unfortunately I think the site owner is one of them.

  3. At the end of the day, you have to do what you feel is right! Keep up the great work.

  4. I was in the same boat too Andy! How folks can be so fraudulent is beyond me - there were a fair few of us who were duped!

  5. Andy do what you think is right and its nice to know that there are people like you who have integrity...its not nice for anyone to do this so I applaud you for standing up for what you believe in xxx

  6. Good for you - after speaking to several of the REAL artists of the images she was selling, I can tell you for sure that she was stealing images so you did the right thing. Kudos to you! :)
