Good Morning Everyone,

There is a new challenge starting today at As You Like It  where we would like you to tell us your favourite type of stamp either digi, clear or rubber.

I, like most people, have some of each and they all have their good and bad points.  I like digital images because of their flexibility in sizing. Clear and rubber stamps allow you to heat emboss where digis don't and I prefer clear to rubber as they are much easier to see where you are stamping.  I think it also depends on your colouring medium too.

For my DT card I have used a Lili of the Valley digi, sized it to fit my 5" x 7" card and coloured with copics.  The sentiment is heat embossed in silver and is from Whimsy stamps.

When I saw Heather's card here  I thought it was a brilliant way of using up snippets so I asked her if she'd mind if I had a go and she said she wouldn't so this is my take on her design.  I have just used yellow and green snippets to go with the colours of the image and I must say it really does help to use us those little pieces.  Sometimes I wonder why I keep such small bits, but at least they've come in handy now.

The sponsor for the challenge is:

I love the way you've used your snippets of paper Lynne. You're right, the colours link the image to the border so that the design is harmonious. Just lovely! Vicky x
