Stamp What? Noble Deer

Kelly (of the Three Musketeers, Ready Set Go, and Hot Mess Success) came up with a great idea for a series this year and asked Barb (of the same groups) and I to join her. 

You know that stack of stamps you have that you have never used or haven't used in a LONG time and are sitting on a shelf, collecting dust?  It's time for us to take one down off the shelf and use it!  But which one?  The name *Stamp What?* comes from using only STAMPin' Up stamps for this challenge and never knowing WHAT it will be! Even we won't know which one it will be ~ it's chosen at random either by someone for us or by number generator.  (I used a number generator to determine which one to use). Since it's chosen at random, it will be a surprise, even to us!  

Stamp What?!!

I have 24 of the older (wood-mounted) SU stamp sets left after last year's purge. I numbered them and then let a random number generator choose this month's stamp set - Noble Deer, circa 2004. I actually purchased this stamp set second-hand well over a decade ago and have only used it a time or two since then. I've decided this is its last hoorah. I've moved it into my "To Be Sold" stack. It really is a GREAT stamp set and someone should be enjoying it. 

I didn't use my Copic Markers (or even my Karin Markers) to color this image. Instead I opted for my Faber-Castell Polychromo Colored Pencils for a softer look.

Here's the inside of my card:

Be sure to head over to Kelly's blog and Barb's blog to see what stamp sets they used and to admire their creativity.

As always...

Gorgeous card. I have that stamp as well and have used it several times. I don't think I could part with mine. Every once in a while there will be a background that is a perfect setting for this noble deer. Love your card, Jeanette.
