This is one of the beautiful photo style stamps you can get at Creative Play Stamps, called Animas River. I don't know if this is the actual Animas River by Durango, CO, but it's sure a pretty stamp, and it's on sale now!!
I started with a Basic Gray Urban Couture tag. I really enjoy these tags, and have found all kinds of fun things to do with them! I stamped the image in Chestnut Roan chalk ink, and added a few 7 Gypsies rub ons. Speaking of rub ons, make sure you use yours as soon as possible after you get them, and avoid buying them on sale, they do go bad. If you've ever had trouble with rub ons, yours are probably old, as they should be very easy to use!!
Also, Creative Play Stamps has one of the biggest selections of ink I've seen, and this pad is on sale now! One of the cool things they have is a black ink pad sampler. It's a great idea because you can try several different blacks, as they all do have different qualities.
The definition and brad are from making memories. The chipboard is Basic Gray. I really like BG chipboard because one side is adhesive. I use this side to hold my glitter, then I use glue dots to adhere the chipboard to my project. This glitter is Martha Stewart's Brownstone, it's beautiful!!
