We Love Stamping December Challenge

Today is a good day as it heralds a new challenge over at We Love Stamping. The challenge where you can showcase your stamps and your skill at using them.

This month our theme is:

** Anything Goes with the option of CAS **


I do love using Catherine Pooler inks for stamping, the colours are so rich and choosing colours (something I find challenging) is very easy because the mini inks come in sets that are designed to work together.


At first glance this might look quite challenging to stamp but in actual fact it was very easy as it is one of Concord & 9th's amazing turnabout stamps. This is a particularly good one as it doesn't really matter if it is not lined up perfectly - that's the hard bit about turnabout stamps, for me anyway.


I have to say that I am quite pleased with this one and I was even brave enough to add some enamel dots!

Don't forget there is always a prize to be won. Why don't you head over to the challenge blog to check it out?

I hope I have inspired you to join us this month, all you have to do is follow the prompt and ensure stamping is the main focus on your card. I am also happy to say that there are some fabulous prizes prizes to be won. The challenge will close on the 29th December.

I am looking forward to seeing you in the gallery.

I am also sharing this at:

You have built up a lovely bouquet of floral and fauna Hilary and very much in my sort of colours. I am going to check out those inks as I have been looking for some small ink pads that I can use when a normal size is too big for getting varying colours on the same stamp (such as my new AALL and Create which are huge in some cases).

Blows and blustery night here and not looking to change much.
