Mom and I stopped at a church fundraising sale recently. It was the end of the sale and we weren't even sure they were still open, but since it was on our way home we pulled in to see what may be left.
At first we didn't see much, everything had really been picked over. There wasn't a lot aside from clothing. On the next to the last table, I spied a small box of assorted rubber stamps ! Since everything was half price or $5 for a bag of goodies, we decided to take a bag. I snagged the small box of stamps (mostly the cheap children's craft kit type images like I bought my own kids many years ago), a new in package picture frame and of all things, two remnants of paper crepe paper streamer to craft something with ;) Mom found a couple of things for herself as well.
Of course I couldn't help but wonder how many rubber stamps or other crafty supplies may have been there at the start of the sale.......
I've had fun water coloring a couple of the stamp images the past week. This card is made with one of them. It is a large image, so the finished card is 5"x 7".
Because this card has a chick on it, I am going to enter it into the current challenge at Retro Rubber (a challenge blog I recently discovered, perfect for me since all of my stamps are oldies!): Challenge #60 Baby, baby - use baby critters on your card.
One of the rules of the challenge is to include the age of the stamp in the blog post. Unfortunately there is no date on the stamp, so I did a google search. From what I have found, it is discontinued and was likely produced in 2013, making it 4 years old.

The image was stamped on water color paper. I water colored it with inks from my old classic Stampin' Up! ink pads and then layered it on Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point card stocks.
Thanks for looking !
