'Anything Goes With Your Current Favourite Stamp' at Stamping Sensations

Hello there,

It's time for a new challenge over at Stamping Sensations and this time, our theme is 'Anything Goes With Your Current Favourite Stamp.'  Now, I know that I've said this before on more than one occasion but to me, asking me to choose a favourite stamp is like asking me to choose my favourite child...... impossible!  I'm sure like most of you crafters out there, there is always one stamp that you really enjoy using, then you move on to another and then another.  So I am sharing with you a card using the stamp that is one of my favourites at this time:


The stamp is designed by Stacey Barras at Crafters Companion and I've made lots of cards using it in many different colours.  It's the sort of image that you can stamp a few at a time and the sit and colour them at your leisure.  For this card, I've teamed it up with a verse by Inkylicious and a butterfly that I printed and then fussy cut out.  I blended the background using Adirondack Peach Bellini and a little glycerin.  The flower itself is coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils.

Here's a second card that I made but this time using more delicate colours.  
The butterfly on this one is by Crafty Individuals.

We have a brand new sponsor this month...... 'RUBBER DANCE' and they are offering a £25 voucher to spend in their online store, so why not join us for a chance to win such a fabulous prize.


Stamping Sensations is a stamping challenge, so we must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork, this means: Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest.

All the details of our challenge rules can be found here

Please note:  If we don't comment on your entry it will be because it doesn't follow our theme to qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment on third part hosts such as Instagram, Flickr or Facebook etc.  We really don't want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who follow the rules.

That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x

I know Sandra, it's an almost impossible task choosing a favourite stamp and I would have the very same problem with an ink as I guess you would.

Both of your cards are beautiful, same stamp yet two totally different creations purley with the use of colour and such delicate subtle colouring on both. I seem to think I have seen one of these first hand as well so know how lovely they are.

I have a lot of favourite stamps, and never time enough to enjoy all them... LOL :D Your "favourite of the moment" looks just delightful, especially with your wonderful colouring! :) Vibrant warm tones on the first card, that I especially love, and a very delicate feel for the second one! Beautiful verses and love the detail of the corners, too
Have a sweet rest of Sunday!
