Favourite "Go To" Stamp at Fashionable Stamping Challenge

Hi Everyone
It's time for the start of another of our fortnightly challenges at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and for this one we are asking you to use your 
this can be any type of project but your favourite stamp must be the focal point of your project.

Now this is a hard one for me as I have so many favourites, but one of my favourite stamp manufacturers has to be "Stampotique" and in particular the stamps of Daniel Torrente I just love the way he draws the fabulous characters, whilst they might not be to everyone's taste I just love them and find them so versatile. So to pick a favourite now I've narrowed it down a bit, no that's still a hard one. I have finally settled on "Fofe" I just love the way he looks so gormless!

and here he just looks so "Street"!!! he is "So down with the kids" I think his baseball cap gives him "Total street cred" 
Other stamps include
Hat cube - Stampotique
Barkabe - Stampotique
Barcode - Stampotique
Urban Life - Sam Poole Creative Expressions (Text)
Background is just gesso and smeared neon acrylic paint with a touch of stenciling through some sequin waste. 

I decided not to colour him, apart from his hat, to make him stand out on the coloured background.
So why not grab your favourite stamp and come and join us over at fashionable Stamping challenge, there is some fabulous inspiration from my talented teamies.
One randomly chosen entry will win $20 to spend online at Flonzcraft, our generous sponsor.
So what are you waiting for? come and play!
I would also like to enter this into this weeks Stampotique designers challenge
this weeks theme is "Use Neon Colours"
