bride2b10.....

I am not sure how you made the stamps for the invitations. There are a couple of options....if you are stamping them yourself, do not use the first image. Ink the stamp then stamp it on a scrap piece of paper. Then turn the stamp towards you and breath on it (I know this sounds dumb) - it will bring out the ink - then stamp it again on scrap paper. You can do this a few times till you get a faded look you like. Then remember which impression you liked and just repeat this step each time. There is a fancy word for it, but I am drawing a blank. Depending on the colour of ink you are using (and this works best on a regular ink, not a pigment ink) you should be able to get at least 3-4 images before you have to re-ink your stamp.

LOL....sorry the scrapbooker in me assumed that was what you were using! I am not sure which image you are using, but I do know under free dingbats on the internet you can get passport stamps and they come in various degrees of distressed and faded looks. We used them on another project, but I do not remember where the exact address is. The only other suggestion I have would be to try putting them in a word doc and then changing the gray scale.....sorry I can't help more.

I have spent a couple days playing when I was on here and cannot find them again! Sorry!

Have you tried scanning one you have already in your book or someone else's and then trying to lighten it?

I know this is quite an old post, but I thought I would add to it for others looking for stamp ideas. There are many different "stamp" fonts on dafont.com

Here are a few that I have used. Just download them, install them, and you will find them in word & ppt. Hope this can help some of you ladies out!
