Favourite Stamp

This month at Stamping Sensations the challenge is to use your favourite stamp.
For my card I used quite muted colours for the background,oxide distress inks twisted citron and worn lipstick and a bit of text stamping. I love this poppy stamp from Carabelle Studio, whats not to love about a poppy stamp LOL. I had a bit of a problem painting the poppy head over the oxide inks,everything I used seemed to just disappear into the background, eventually used my very old charisma pencils.  Do hope you will join us in our challenge this month, we are a stamping challenge so your entry must have stamping as the focal point.


We are sponsored this month by Visible Image who are offering  a prize of £35  to  spend in their store


  1. Your poppy looks perfect on your card. I love the colours and I'm a poppy lover too. So far I have managed not to succumb to the new oxide inks but my resolve is fast fading when I see the lovely results on other peoples cards. Hugs Mrs A.

  2. It's a beautifully muted background Joan and makes the perfect backdrop for the lovely Poppy.

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  7. Absolutely gorgeous, Joan! I love it - you certainly can't beat a good poppy. Your oxide background sets it off perfectly. 6 more colours fell into my basket today at stamp Magic including the worn lipstick. They are such fun to play with aren't they?
