( Quote) "This week we challenge you to use one or both of the above images and to ALTER them Use the whole cabinet card or just elements. Create any kind of artwork you desire. Just remember to use at least one rubberstamp!"
Oops! seem I misread the above challenge and thought when it said "Create any kind of artwork you desire" it was ok to use the images as they were or just alter the sizes etc, not change the look of the photos.
