Good morning everyone, we had a super month with you all sharing your favourite stamp, or should I say stamps as we very soon realised it was a pretty tough ask selecting just one, even the Design Team had the same problems. So our thanks to you all for doing your best to come up with just one favourite, it was a real fun month.

Now on to the winners, the Design Team all selected their favourites, the votes have been counted and I am pleased to announce that the winner of the voucher from Visible Image is.............

Dora's go to stamp

Good morning, it's time for our mid month inspirational post and this month Dora is sharing her 'go to stamp' with us, I will pass you over to her to explain her choice...........

Hello everyone, this month it is my turn to share a card for the midmonth inspirational post using my 'go to stamp'. It is hard to choose from so many stamps that I have, so I narrow it to fit in this month challenge theme 'your favourite stamp'.

This lovely stamp is from Creartive Expressions Linda Ravenscroft Constellation series. I coloured it with Derwent pencils and a background stamped with light purple ink.

This image is one of my favourites. This fairy is so delicate and realistic and I find it so beautiful to colour. It is one of the first stamps that I bought and I never get bored of colouring it.

I hope that I give you all some inspiration to play along with our monthly challenge theme of 'your favourite stamp'.

Good morning and welcome to our June challenge.

Before I tell you about this months theme I would like to announce that in future we will be having a main winner and also a second one who will also receive a prize. We will continue to use the same voting system with each DT member selecting their favourite five entries, scores from 1 down to 5 given to each DT's votes, then counted to give us our winners and Top 3.

This month we would love to see a creation based on the theme of............

********Use your favourite stamp********

Please can I remind you we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork. You can enter up to three creations but please note: If we do not comment on your entry it will be because it does not follow the theme, qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment on third party hosts particularly Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Splitcoast. We do not want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who do follow the rules.
