Favourite Stamp at Stamping Sensations

Hello there,

I really enjoy taking part in the Stamping Sensations Challenge but I had to think long and hard before entering this month.  Their challenge this time is to 'Use Your Favourite Stamp.'  Let's be honest here, that's like asking you to choose which one of your children is your favourite.........well maybe not quite the same ;)

After giving this some serious thought, I came to the decision that mine would probably be the 'Twiggy Branch' by Inkylicious.  I use this stamp so often to frame many my scenic images and here's the card that I've made for the challenge using that very stamp:


I went to the Stamp Magic show last Sunday and after many near misses, I finally got to meet the lovely Sally Holmes from the DT at Stamping Sensations.  If you're reading this Sally....Yes, I'm very sure that we have a similar stash of stamps :)  The Heron and the Moon stamps were part of my crafty purchases on Sunday and are also by Inkylicious.

I would also Like to add this card into the following challenges:

The Artistic Stamper - Winged Things
Penny Black and More - Anything Goes
Cardz 4 Guyz - Something Blue for Father's Day

A stunning scene Sandra, I love the gorgeous heron stamp you've used. I know just what you mean about picking favourites, I'm have trouble on this one.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who had a hard time choosing her favourite stamp, Sandra! Your card is absolutely beautiful, with such a calm and serene feel to it. Thank you for sharing it with us at Stamping Sensations.

It was only when I came to make my own card that I realised just how hard the theme was Sandra and reading people blogs as they have entered looks like the majority of us had the same dilemma.

Your card is of course beautiful, as Lynne said it has such a serene feel to it and the ripples of the sea look so realistic. And it seems I am missing something from my Inkylicious stash - twiggy branch, how did I miss that one ?

Many thanks for sharing your delightful creation with us at Stamping Sensations challenge.

And I'm tempted to repeat the theme next year and see how many peoples favourites have changed, I am betting most.
