The theme at Retro Rubber is WINTER and here is the card I made for it.
This images are from a very old, retired Flourishes stamp set, I've had this set for at least 2 years. I stamped the images onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored them with the aqua painter and SU markers in Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip and More Mustard. I added some Wink of Stella to the snowman and Dazzling Diamonds to the snow and the mittens. I punched the Holy leaves with a super old McGill punch I got from the dollar bin at my local craft store.
The SU Cherry Cobbler Ribbon is from my (never ending) stash and the red Rhine Stone is retired SU.
The pattern paper is from Lily of the Valley, unfortunately they retired all their paper, I was lucky enough to grab some of their last 8x8" pads, I love the designs on this beautiful paper and one of the great things about it is that it's NOT double sided, I could never bring myself to condemn this sweet Holy and Berries pattern to eternal obscurity.
Here is a close up picture so you can see the shimmer of the Wink of Stella on this sweet Snowman.
And here is a picture of the finished inside.
This sentiment, the one in front and the little snowflakes are from this set, they are stamped with Archival Brilliance pigment ink in Pearlescent Sky Blue.
Here is the banner that inspired this card.
I hope you give this fun challenge a try and join us at the gallery, we would love to see what you create. Please stop by at the other Designer Team's blogs to be inspired by their creations.
Thank you so much for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
