DCM - Stamping with a twist

This week's challenge is set by Keryn and I want you to... Stamp with a Twist. Don't race out and grab your mounteds, unmouteds, polymer stamps or your stipple brushes and foam. I want you stamp with basically anything else but a commercially produced stamp.
=========================




Wow ! What a challenge !Have to admit - lol !

Being a non-stamper & all !

I thought in terms of circles mainly - also bubble wrap - but wasn't sure what I would do with the stamped bubble wrap .

I decided to stick with anything circular I could find - from plastic bottles, bottle caps , marker ends ( there were some interesting patterns that emerged from those ) but mainly I stuck to using erasers - erasers of pencils - mechanical ones etc .

My eleven & eight year olds were very happy to help out & they stamped the paper for the second tag.

Also testing out the new CanoScan 4400F that we have with these little gift tags .

supplies : DCWV , glitter glue

TFL !

As soon as I saw your message on the DCM blog about using circles I knew you'd come up with some great ideas. - the idea of using loads of different circles is such a good one.

These all look great, I've not made a single tag so far this year, which is sad really because they are so nice to make.

What a good idea to use something rubber that was not a stamp! Now why didn't I think of that? These certainly are cute tags - so colourful and bright!
