This was such a fun challenge, really unique!  This is for the Stamp With a Homemade Stamp Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, and then also entered in Simon Says Stamp Challenge – Use Washi Tape.

Some strips of washi, thanks to Tar-jay, My Cute Stamps make the perfect nautical pair.  Here’s a close-up of the ‘stamp’ I used to create the background:

Ok, you’re NEVER going to guess what I used to create this!



Come on, try to guess!

It’s a DISH SCRUB!!  I mashed one side of the scrub into some Hero Arts Pool Shadow Ink!

How FUN is that!?  Perfect texture and pattern for super cheap!  This challenge certainly helped me open my eyes to see what I could use as a homemade stamp.  I hope you can join in the fun too!

Bonus points if you comment with what your guess was, I’d love to know your guesses! Open-mouthed smile
