Football Crazy

Hi Crafters,

I've been looking through some older stamps that haven't seen the light of day for a while and came across this footballer stamp. It had no packaging, I think I received it in a swap, so I'm not sure of the brand.... but thought I had better ink it up anyway.
I stamped it in black as it had dotted shading on the stamp just like the pictures in a newspaper. 

Mysterious Footballer Stamp
Distress Ink Background cut with Xcut Postage Die
Large Background - My Craft Studio Image
Sentiments - Clearly Besotted Stamps and Dies, Britannia Dies and Tonic Number Dies.

Glad I am not the only one with mystery stamps Lorraine !!

Whatever make it makes a super card for the footie fans and the colours perfect for your neck of the woods. Would need to be Merseyside red for me, I'm one of those sad women who like nothing more than a good game of footie.

Lorraine, your work with the mysterious stamp is gorgeous. I love that you used black so it looks like it's from a newspaper highlight. :o) The layers are perfect and I love the abundance of soccer balls! You make masculine cards look easy, my friend. That is no easy feat. :o) The personalization is a wonderful touch, sure to be appreciated. My apologies for not visiting as often as I'd like. i'm in quite a bit of a pain, but am doing as much crafting/commenting as my body will allow. I treasure your work and am grateful I am visiting tonight!

Hugs and blessings,
