This tutorial will show you how to apply a stamp effect to text or an image with Photoshop Elements. In this case, we will mimic a rubber stamp, but this effect can also be used to create a grunge or distressed effect on text or graphics. I'm using Photoshop Elements 8 for my screen shots, but the tutorial should be compatible with older and newer versions of PSE as well.

Photoshop, GIMP, and Paint.NET versions of this tutorial are also available.
