House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge - show us your favourite stamp!!

At House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge this week the lovely Lisa is host and would like you to use your favourite stamp and I can't wait to see which one you choose.

We've been overwhelmed at the response to our call for Guest Designer and have decided from next month on to have two GDT's each month so we're keeping an eye on your wonderful creations.

During the month of February the fabulously talented Anne Ray will be joining us as Guest Designer, pop along and see her gorgeous creations.


This is the stamp I chose as my favourite (I can't say I have favourites as I just love them all) I chose this one as I won it in Lols candy sometime in the summer last year and haven't had the opportunity to use it before and have been itching to ink and colour it. 
It is coloured with Copics and I decided to do an all white card to give the image impact. I've embossed the cs with a Tim Holts checkerboard folder, the leaves are cut with a Marianne creatable, the flowers and butterflies with Crealie dies and the sentiment with a Spellbinders Fancy tag. Most of the edges are distressed with the TH distressing tool and stickled using Stardust stickles and the sentiment is from TPC studio



A close up to show the stickles on the thistle head.

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp


I hope the weather is better where you are - it is bitingly cold here and we have white scenery yet again!!

Definitely a favourite this one - love the sparkly thistles & the positioning of those swirls on the sentiment panel just beneath the thistle stalks is pretty nifty. Love the character in this especially with the white layering. Am just experimenting using white & love it.
Missed the last HM - misbehaving head again.
