DT Challenge: Stamps

Anita's challenge left me stamped... er, stumped.

I'm not your "average" scrapbooker. I really don't own many stamps. (gasp!) I DO have a couple of alphabet stamp sets, but decided against using them for this challenge.

SOOOOO... I cheated!

I created a layout using the digital equivalent to the rubber stamp: brushes. Anyone who is familiar with Photoshop will know about brushes. They're a fun technique to use on digital layouts.
This layout is an 8x10 to put into a photo frame for my mom on Mothers Day. The "rubber stamps" (brushes) that I used were the brown flourishes on the background and the date stamp next to the journaling block. I created the page in Photoshop Elements 7.

So, how will the rest of you be challenged by Anita's idea?
Pin It!
