BLOGGERS CHALLENGE BC161

THEME: SOMETHING RECYCLED
Please click on image for enlargement and detailed view.
I raided my "paper scraps for recycle" drawer to find a background gone bad. I had previously been experimenting with Adirondack inks on glossy, using a can of compressed air. I also chose a recycled rubber stamp from Stamp Oasis (2000)called 'Fire Dreams'. I purchased it gently used (gotta love that term-grins)from a friend who at the time was developing her own acrylic stamp line.
