Challenge #195-March 2017-ATG w/Optional Twist: The Rubber Room-No Digis

Hello, Crafty Peep!
Our Optional Twist this month comes from 613 Resident Designer Carol Gill!  Carol thought, and I agreed, that it would be fun to return to our roots: STAMPING.
So for those playing the twist, we would like to see stamped images only.  No Digis and No pre-colored images.  You can let us know if you are playing the twist by adding OT to your name.
For those playing Anything Goes, as usual, 
just show us what you made! We wanna see!
   As always, we appreciate your support and awesome comments!
