3rd Challenge: Using Stamps

Welcome back everyone! We love the wonderful response we had for our 2nd Challenge! 15 entries on just our 2nd challenge. WOW! Thank you to everyone who participated. It is so much fun seeing everyone's work.

Your next challenge is to use a stamp as a background or accent. I loved to see how everyone on our team interpreted the challenge. And I can't wait to see how you interpret it too!

My page (Kristy)

When I ordered the Everlasting Romance from Unity Stamps, I knew I wanted to use it for special scrapbook page. I think I found the right page for it. This picture was taken on my grandparents' wedding day, nearly 68 years ago. I stamped the image with a Versamark ink pad and embossed it with pewter embossing powder to give it even more pop.

Now, here are some more projects from our team:

And now what everyone is waiting for...the winner for our Second Challenge:
