what a man!

Over the last few weeks I have been "re constructing" my  wooden
rubber stamps and converting into ones I can now use in the misti.
Making use of the ones  I have never used and not waste money.
Onto my card....for my grandson who is turning 20, not 
sure if this is too 'old' for him or not but it's flat
and great for posting.

I am using Tim Holtz rubber stamps,
Newsprint and  Watson
These were stamped onto glossy cardstock
with versafine onyx black ink.
[I find stamping onto glossy card stock makes the
stamps, in particular if black, stand out more]
DP, cog dies and cardstock were also used.
