Less is More - use a rubber stamp

Penny Black is the sponsor for this week's challenge at Less is More , which is to use a Rubber Stamp! I initially started my large collection of stamps with rubber stamps and they adorn the wall in my craft room, tidily arranged in little cubby holes - all 60 of them!  But now, it is the thing to buy the clear stamps, which are great, but they are usually stored away in boxes or filing folders, so are not quite so available for inspiration.  So with no reluctance at all, I chose a rubber stamp - it was a Penny Black hedgehog (I notice there have been a few used already in the challenge) - I actually completed mine this Sunday morning, but it is Fathers' Day here today, and our closest family members were here for lunch - so I waited till they left late afternoon to complete my blog post.  The image has been heat embossed in black, and coloured with distress markers.  The sentiment is by Amy Tangerine.
