Color challenge at the Retro Rubber Stamping Challenge Blog! Too fun!

There is a new challenge over at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog!  A color challenge! Simply select a stamp one year old or older, and make a new creation using the stamp and the following color graphic:

Here is the card that I created for this challenge:

To create this card, I created a plain white invitation size folded card.  I stamped onto a scrap of white card stock the floral hello image, a new stamp from Mama Elephant, I used a light grey color ink from Memento.  Then, using the color graphic as a guide, I selected Copic Markers that matched and colored the stamped image.  I attempted to add shadows but I need a lot more practice!  :)

I fussy cut the hello flower image.  I trimmed a small piece of My Favorite Things colored paper, placed a stitched rectangle die on three sides, then glued it to the card front.  Then, I placed the floral hello on top using foam tape.  I trimmed a small strip of white card stock and added it to the bottom of the card.  I took a stamp that says "Beautiful" from an older Technique Tuesday set dated 2012, named Pretty Petals.  I stamped that word onto the white card stock strip, and onto the adjoining paper using the same grey ink.  I then added a small strip of the colored paper on top the white strip, and added to small grey accents.  I tied some American Crafts twine onto the card, and made a bow, then added a gem. 

Won't you join us?  We would love to see your creations!  Enter a project at the Retro Rubber Blog today!  Then return to the website the Sunday after the challenge to learn the winner.  Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to Retro Rubber Challenge Blog's 62nd Challenge!

Hello and thanks for stopping in!  It is time for the Retro Rubber Challenge number 62!  Won't you join in the fun?

The challenge this time involves using a stamp one year old or older and the theme of "flowers".  Here is the challenge graphic and the card that I created for this challenge:

To create my card, I used a stamp from Darkroom Door dated 2015.  It is called Tulips and it is one of my favorites!  I love DD!  I stamped the image onto card stock, trimmed the rectangle, and colored with Copic Markers.  I cut some patterned paper from My Mind's Eye and adhered two pieces to the front of a pre-made and pre-scored card.  I added the stamped image with dimensional adhesive.  I then rounded the corners of the card, and added ribbon and a sticker from SRM.

This card came together so quickly and easily!  It was fun to make and now I have a thank you card to give a friend!  Please join us!  Then come back to Retro Rubber the Sunday after the challenge ends to learn the winner!  Thanks for stopping by!

I entered my card at this "Touch of Pink" challenge page:  Simon Says Stamp, come check it out!
