F4A384 - "'Back' in the Saddle Again!" - 06/30/17

I am quite certain that I am NOT alone in the fact that I have kept WAY more than my share of stamp sets that I just don't have the heart to get rid of. When I first started "collecting" stamps, I got VERY excited about background stamps. And I used to use them a LOT more than I do now. Not quite sure WHY that is. So I looked into my arsenal and picked out one of my "oldies but goodies" ...

So here is where your challenge comes in! Go find an "old" (or perhaps just a little dusty) background stamp and use it!! Give it some of the love it deserves from having waited so patiently for you to notice it and bring it back to life again!!

My Sample:

All Star

Keyword: F4A384

F4A384 Gallery

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Thanks, for a great challenge, Wendy. I have always loved the Stampin Up weathered background so your challenge made me get it out and use it. I need to use it more often for masculine cards. Here is my card:

I swiped the Distress Ink across the page and then went over it with Gamasol, blew dry it dry; and then stamped my flowers on it. Wendy, I have not used this SNS stamp set in a long long time!!

Terrific challenge today, Wendy. I have an entire row of background stamps on one of my shelves, some new, many old. I need to bring those oldies but goodies out more often!

Not only did I play with a neglected background stamp, I also got to play with the oxide inks.

I didn't upload this to the challenge gallery because I stamped it back in 2009 (though for some reason I didn't upload it to SCS then) but this challenge made me think of it and it does feature a now old background stamp so I thought I'd share it here in the thread. Baroque Friend

Thanks for this fun challenge! I used stamps, paper, hardware as well as an embossing folder that had not been used in quite a while:
