I bought some new stamps the other week so I may play. I guess I could watercolour some backgrounds beforehand or is that cheating!!!!!!

Can I clarify though, can we use other elements on the card, or is it entirely stamped and coloured so to speak?

I will be playing also, got na few new stmaps I haven't done much with.
Pippin, in the past we've made backgrounds beforehand if we wanted, and add whatever you want to the card as long as the stamping is the focus of the card.

ah I've had these herbs stamps for a while which I've never tried yet... gotta mount them first, through. They look somewhat acrylic, but there is no way they will stick to the blocks on their own... I'll have to glue them to foamcore blocks (el-cheapo method). And then stamp some stuff over the weekend :)

Are you kidding??!@#%&*(&()_ Now I'll have to try some of those recipes. I hardly made it through the CAT last weekend and now here you go and have something I'd like to do. I absolutely adore rubber and clear stamps and have a bunch I'd love to use. Guess I'd better get some backs made up if I can find a couple hours. I hope I'll be able to get a few done.
