One of the nicest things about Retro Rubber Challenge is that you get a chance to go re-introduce yourself to all your old favourites. One of my favourite sets is Butterfly Basics (2015 Occasions) and my favourite background stamp is Dictionary (2013-14 Annual) and this card uses both of them. I've used Timeless Textures (2016 Occasions) to give texture to the card base and I like the way it makes it looks antiqued. The sentiment is from Thoughtful Banners (2016-17 Annual)
I used an aqua-painter to colour the floral image. After I'd stamped the background in Smoky Slate, I lightly distressed the edge and stamped the net around two sides.
As always with Retro Rubber, there are just a couple of simple rules. You must use at least one stamp that is older than a year. You must give us an approximate age for your stamp and you must link to no more than ten challenges in total.
We'd love to see what you make of this challenge and you have until August 25 to join us.
This card was also inspired by the challenge at House of Cards this month: to use a floral image and/or the colour palette. The colour palette was the basis for the card as well as the floral image.
