Top Tip Tuesday Rubber Stamps Only Challenge

I love my rubber (or clear) stamps!!!  I have rarely seen a rubber stamp I didn't like.  I still have the very first stamp I purchased at a wonderful craft festival when I lived in Houston.  Our challenge at Top Tip Tuesday this fortnight is being hosted by the uber talented Elaine.  And you guessed it we want you to use Rubber Stamps Only!  

I had a very hard time deciding which stamp to use.  In the end I inked up a Julie Nutting doll stamp that has been waiting patiently for me.  I tried "water coloring" with distress markers for the first time, which I had fun with.  The dress on this cute girl was paper pieced.  This tag helped me with my resolution to use my NBUS and paper scraps.

We are so pleased this challenge is sponsored by Bunny Zoe Crafts.  Their website is full of wonderful goodies.  I was so impressed by the number of my favorite stamp companies they offer.  

Their generous prize for this challenge is a £10 gift voucher.

OK, come on, grab that favorite rubber stamp, or maybe that stamp you been dying to ink up.  You can't win if you don't enter!  Be sure to stop by the Top Tip Tuesday Blog for some DT inspiration and inspiration from your fellow crafters.  I am in awe of the talent we have the pleasure of seeing.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!
