Retro Rubber Challenge 64, anything goes!

You have waited for it, here it is!  Another "anything goes" challenge!  You are free to do whatever you want!  Just make something crafty using a stamp one year old or older!  That is it!  Here is the challenge graphic and the project that I created for this Retro Rubber Blog challenge:

I had so much fun with this one!  I have a stamp set that I just got with the three bird image, It is from Winnie & Walter and called "So Tweet".  It is dated 2016, so technically I guess it is one year old.  lol
I also used another stamp set new to me, from Sunny Studio named "Sock Hop", it is also dated 2016, so there's that!  haha  Then, I used a very much older set, from Create a Smile "Uplifting" I do not know an exact date but I see images made with the set online dating to 2015.  

I made an invitation sized white card and folded it in half, then rounded the corners.  Next, I stamped the car onto a piece of card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored the image with Copic Markers.  I also accented the image with Wink of Stella Clear.  Then, I cut out the windshield and fussy cut the car.  Next, I stamped the birds and colored them with markers.  I fussy cut them as well. I placed the birds behind the windshield, and added the entire image to the card front using double layers of foam adhesive.  I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock, trimmed and applied using one layer of foam adhesive.

At this point the card really needed accents so I used sequins and still something was missing.  So I pulled out the CAS stamp set with the little star/flower image.  I typically never use little stamps, but I have now changed this philosophy, because this little stamp made this card complete.  I randomly stamped this image around the card in black ink.  

I am entering my card in the following challenge also, come check it out!  Bitten by the Bug

I had so much fun with this project and know you will also, so join in the fun!  We want to see your creations!  Then stop back at the Retro Rubber Blog on the Sunday after the challenge closes to learn the winner!  Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Such a cute set of images! I do like the finishing touches that you added to complete the card. What fun!

  8. Christine! OMG stop it! This made me squeal with laughter, I love it, its so fun, i like all the little stars and sequins too. Cx

  9. The bright colours draw the eye and I love how the colours spill out of the car in stars and sequins like that. If I was feeling poetic, I might say it's like their happiness at being together on the road just spilling out around them. You've created a really 3D effect with them. Lovely!
