Thanks for dropping in! There is a fun new challenge, over at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog! It involves using a stamp one year old or older, and the theme below (rainbow):
The card above is one I created for this challenge. I used soft rainbow colors. There have been multiple rainbows around here lately, from the bright bold, to the soft colored. I thought a soft rainbow would be good on a summer rainbow ice cream cone!
First, I created a white card, invitation sized, folded and scored, and rounded all four corners.
Then, I used a piece of kraft paper and a die and cut the background with the holes. I added this item to the card front. Next, I stamped the cone onto white card stock using Versamark embossing ink (clear) and sprinkled brown embossing powder which I then heat set. I fussy cut the cone and added it to the card with one layer of dimensional adhesive.
Next, I stamped the ice cream layer onto white card using embossing ink again, and white powder which I heat set. I used very soft Copic marker colors to create the soft rainbow ice cream effect. I put the ice cream on the card using double layered foam adhesive.
I used a sentiment stamp with dark brown ink in the lower right corner, and tied on twine with a plastic white "gem". All stamps are from an older set that I own, from Wilson Designs. It is dated 2011.
Be sure to submit your projects to the blog, and indicate the age of your stamp(s). Thanks! Cannot wait to see your creations! Stop back by the Retro Rubber blog the Sunday after the challenge ends to learn the challenge winner! Best of luck and have fun!
