Allsorts week 511 - Use your favourite stamp/Image

Good Morning it is my turn to choose the theme for this weeks challenge and I have chosen,
Use your favourite STAMP/ IMAGE OR DIE.
Pretty much anything goes but you do have to say what is your favourite image.

This is the prize for this week

Here is my card.

Using Penny Black - Whispers(2006) and Gossamer (2008)
13 and 11 years old and still stamping perfectly.

Now these are wood mounted stamps and because they are (and still are) my all time favourite stamps I could not choose between them so I decided that I would use them both on the one card.

I have to admit that there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth while trying to get a decent
row of them together, my paper re-cycling bag really filled up that day.

They are paper pieced with LOTV papers and the dotty background papers are also LOTV.
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards and I could not believe my luck that I had one in exactly the right colour.

Also because the paper that I used for the images was from snippets I will be entering this card in the Playground, when it re-opens tomorrow.

Thanks so much for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.
Have a lovely week.

Very pretty stamps Kath and I love the aqua colour that you've used with them. I always find it a real struggle to pick a single favourite stamp. As I've said previously, it's like trying to choose your favourite child! : Have a good weekend x

The stamps are beautiful Kath and work together seamlessly! Pretty colour and perfect paper lucky that the sentiment is exactly the right colour...that never happens to me!
