Most Useful Stamp


Over at Out of a Hat Creations this week, they have a brilliant challenge.  For me the choice was very easy.  Not only is this my most useful stamp, but it is one of my favourites - it's so versatile.


You can see it's well used.  I think it must be the blackest wooden rubber stamp I own!!  I also think it was one of the first stamps I ever bought!!  Great buy!!


This is the image stamped as a whole.


This is why it is so versatile, it's great for inchies, especially that face on a 1" piece of stampbord with a coloured background and scratched into.


The tags can be cut into individual tags and used together or separately.


And it makes a great decoupage image.


Don't know if you can see the depth you can achieve.


I've mounted all the tags and then the face again.


And the stamp and the circle from the two smaller tags.


I know I've been asked the name of this stamp before so here it is.  I do believe it's now discontinued, but if you get the chance of getting your hands on one, don't pass it up!!!


And finally I mounted it onto a piece of black card.

Awesome! Love your use of that fab stamp! It's YOU who make it versatile, not the stamp itself, I would say! That's very artistic!!! LOVE IT!

My Photo
Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
