Wednesday Stamper - Open Theme

This week's Wednesday Stamper is open theme, which works great for me. I have been doing a lot of stamping, but nothing that I can show you right now, which is a bummer! I finished up a few things today and decided I really wanted to make something I could show, so here it is. Junk art! I have had the idea for this knocking around in my head for awhile. The wood base is a piece of an old pallet that has been lying around for ages - I love the aged look of it. The rest is bits and pieces bought at estates sales or found. Literally. Like, on the ground. :-) Stamps (man and gasoline label stamped on wood) are both from the Family Man plate from Oxford Impressions. Unfortunately, I finished it late and didn't have time to photograph it - this is a scan and is passable for now I guess!
