You Stamped With What??

Hiya! There's a challenge over at Shopping Our Stash at the moment, to stamp with something that isn't a stamp! I was determined to come up with something for this, but it took a bit trial and error, and I'm still deciding whether I like the results or not... well, at least it's unique! There's a photo of the 'stamps' at the bottom of the post!

I stamped with the head of a screw, and used that to make flowers, adding Nuvo Drops to the centres. I drew the stems and leaves with a black pen. For the first card, I used the bottom of a pencil sharpener for a vase, then coloured it with Promarkers. In the second card I used the bottom of an oval perfume bottle (masking the top and bottom) to make the outline of vases, and coloured with inks. Here's what I made:
