Pear Art

Welcome to this weeks challenge with the CCEE team, hostess Lynn has this months challenges.

In honor of "Old Stuff" Day, make a card or project making use of some of the earliest stamps in your collection, or make use of old supplies in your stash. A fabulous vintage image would also be great for this challenge!

Along time ago, before we had fancy designer paper, we had to create our own backgrounds with ink, this technique is called direct to paper, where I just lightly brushed the distressed ink pads over the paper. I have used one of my favourite dies to create a pull card.

The stamp I have used was in the early days of unmounted stamps where the rubber was not attached to wood and you had to purchase a mounting system, this one used the acrylic blocks and a Velcro strips and a loop piece that was attached to the back if the stamp with double sided tape.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers have created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs.
