Favourite Stamp

Okay, so I wanted to enter the first challenge over at Fantasy Stampers, and their theme is 'Your Favourite Stamp'.  I pondered and pondered - I love all my stamps, I am a stamper, it's where I started and probably where I will end (drowning in a sea of vulcanised rubber and polymer), but as to a favourite, that is a tuffy.  

I really don't have a favourite, so as I went through, I went for the stamp that at the moment makes me smile the most, and the one below is it.  The stamp is available from Quixotic Paperie by Susana Loves Stamps, the stamp itself is called 'Clueless'.  Isn't his face just amazing, and if I say so myself, I am really happy with my colouring on this one, if I could do this every time I would be a very happy bunny! (my trustee spectrum noir pens used)

I used the outside the frame technique to cut him out, just to give an extra bit of depth, the doily is a diesire die and I think the ribbon came from a pair of pyjamas (gotta recycle these things - far too pretty for the rubbish).

Anyway, I hope you like my little monster (and I really hope I get onto the design team - I need a new challenge to get me crafting regularly).

Well, must be off to do some cleaning now (sadly my house doesn't clean itself), and as a reward, this afternoon I'm hoping to craft with Alison and watch the launch of the Brother Scan n Cut (serious 'I wants it' {turns into Gollum}).
