I was using the "three men in tophats" stamp on another project...when I was done I realized that I didn't have any baby wipes to clean the stamp.
Hmmmmmm I thought to myself...being too lazy to walk across the hall to the bathroom to wash the stamp, I just spritzed it with water and stamped it off on a scrap piece of white paper.
Hmmmmm I thought to myself again, I kinda like how that looks...I'm going to leave it until it dries to see if I am going to use it or recycle it...you guessed it, I used it!
I love how all the detail in the stamp fades as you move to the left of the image...like an old photograph that was damaged by water. I wanted to keep it pretty CAS but I added the staples to break up the white on white on white.
