Dreams are made of this

Hello there! Hope you are enjoying the new year! I was lucky enough in the old year to be approached by Hunky Dory to road test and review some items they held in their online store. I chose some Phil Martin stamps as I really like them and didn't have any in my stash so far. Here's my make with the first stamp ...

I chose the secret-woodland-pre-cut-rubber-stamp to play with first. It was lovely to work with - grey rubber and a nice cushion with a good sticky back that made sure it stuck nicely to my block. I stamped it first time using a plain piece of card and versafine clair ink. It stamped beautifully. Onto using it in a project...

I created a background using pixie powders and once this was dry stamped the image on top. I then cut this to size - perfect for a DL card - and mounted it on black before attaching to the card.

Finally I chose a sentiment from my stash to fill up the gap a little - I don't think there was any need to really but it was a personal preference. 

I am looking forward to playing with the remaining stamps I chose and reviewing them on here!
My verdict though - great stamp!!! Thanks Hunky Dory!

Big hugs
