This image is from the Stampin Up! Hostess set called "Summer Afternoon", from the 2012-2013 catalog and it has the most adorable images, I couldn't tell you if I love one more than the other, all 3 are simply beautiful.
I bought this set from my dear friend and teammate Katy McGloin along with a bunch of others equally beautiful, she still has a ton of sets so go check them out, maybe you can find the one that got away, like me.
I stamped this image onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with SU markers and the aqua painter, the sky and grass were sponged with distress inks in Broken China and Peeled Paint, the pattern paper is from my stash and the sentiment from a retired Flourishes set called "From the Garden".
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.
Both the sentiment and the image are from the same Flourishes set.
For more inspiration hop over to my teammates blogs to see their fabulous creations and join us in the gallery, we can't wait to see you there.
Please remember that the stamps you use must be at least ONE YEAR OLD, if you know the name of your stamp or stamp set, a good place to find out their age is Pinterest or Splitcoaststampers.
You can link up your creation to up to 10 challenges including RETRO RUBBER.
The purpose of this challenge is to give your old, retired and sometimes, forgotten stamp sets a chance to shine again so, go dig them out and create something awesome to share with us.
Here is the sketch that inspired my card.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
