How to: use inked stamps only

Hello everyone, I hope you're all having a nice, warm Sunday. Today we start a new challenge at
and this time we would like you to use
That's right, take out all these rubber stamps and play with them!
You can still use your digis, but the ink stamped elements must be in focus.
Our sponsor for this one is
who sent us some lovely stamps.

Here's my DT card using some of these.
I received the Nature Notes set, from which I have used the tree stamp as a main image. It's colored with Promarkers a little, creased and distressed with ink. I have placed it on an old book page.
The mesh is upcycled from a flower bouquet, and the kraft paper comes from the backside of a drawing pad. I played with white crackle paint a little here to add more light to this card.
The sentiment comes from the stamp set and I guess it doesn't have to be translated.
Thank you for visiting my blog!
