OK. I don't like it when people ask me how long I have been rubber stamping. It makes me feel really OLD!
I bought my first rubber stamps while I was in high school. Back then you could use black india ink or if you were lucky, you could find a blue ink pad.
I still have those stamps. They are still nice and rubber-y. Some stamps that I have bought since have become rocks and useless. Here's a pic of my first step on a long, long and expensive path..
These are all the same brand and I bought them at the same time. How old are they? How is that any different than asking me 'How long have you been stamping?' !! OK, fine. Here is a shot of one on it's side..
I decided to get these out when a challenge asked us to get something out that we haven't used in a while.. It's probably been 25 years since I last used these.. I think that qualifies.
So, a new place I have found to spend a lot of time is called Outlawz. This is the challenge that made me dust these puppies off. It is a CAS challenge. Clean and Simple..Here's the challenge.
So, here is the card I created cleanly and simply:
I used some Spellbinders to cut out and emboss the image and the sentiment. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink.As usual I used my Copics to color this image:
Do you have any stamps that are really, um, old? Tell me about them!
Party on, Wayne
