Hello everyone: Here we are at Retro Rubber
with a new challenge for you, I hope you give it a try. The theme is "May Flowers", since all those April Showers helped our flowers bloom, we want to see lots and lots of them in our gallery so go and look for your older than one year
images and give them some love and ink, here is the card I made with a 3-4 year old stamp from Northwoods called Petunias with two Butterflies
The image was stamped onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with SU markers, aqua painter and Prismacolor pencils, I added gold gel pen to the butterflies, to show the veins and details on their wings. After changing my mind several times about the layout for this card and since it's a pretty big image, I decided to fussy cut it so I could use the pretty pattern paper that coordinated so well with the Petunia's colors, I die cut a piece of vellum just so this flowers wouldn't be lost in the background. I added a little tag with a sentiment from my stash and a sheer pink ribbon for a bit of detail.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.
The sentiment was die cut with a Spellbinders die set called "Oval Regalia", both flowers and the sentiment are from a retired Flourishes stamp set called "From the Garden", this set is very old, Flourishes closed it's on line store about 3 years ago and I know I had this stamps way long before that.
Here is the inspiration photo from Retro Rubber that inspired my card.
I would like to enter my card the Time Out Challenge
"Inspired by Words" challenge. The words are "May all your Weeds be Wild Flowers", we can use this phrase any way we want to, I went with Flowers.
I hope you give our Retro Rubber challenge a try, please remember to use stamps that are at least one year old and, if it's at all possible, let us know their age.
