Someone on the stamping board Gingerwood was searching for a silhouette stamp with skaters, and I think she was even hoping for vintage. I knew just the stamp she needed! This comes from Stubby Stampers, a company I really enjoy doing business with. I bought this stamp last year, but I actually did not use it. But in linking the stamp for the poster, I was inspired to finally make a card with it.
I wanted a more "romantic" look than just black and white. I tried stamping in blue, but that just didn't do it. So, I decided to gry some blue sponged into the background. That seemed to work. I washed the stamp and then stamped just the trees on one side or the other with versamark, and then embossed with clear. It doesn't show up very well in the photo, but it worked well.
