Retro Rubber 114 - Design Team Card

This week at Retro Rubber Challenge we have a colour combination for you. Isn't this such a pretty set of colours?

As always, to play along with us, you need to not only follow the challenge brief but also use a stamp that's at least a year old and give us an approximate age for it. That's because we're the challenge that wants to get you showing the older parts of your collection some ink time. 😀

I've said before that Beautiful Bouquet is a great set to have because, with so many different leaves and flower stamps, you can create so many variations. This card shows off the leaf, stem and tulip stamps. This set first appeared in the 2017-18 Annual Catalogue and is still current.

To create the background for my bed of tulips, I sponged Garden Green, Daffodil Delight and Gorgeous Grape onto some shimmery cardstock. After spritzing it lightly with water to get some mottling happening, I stamped one of the stamps from Artisan Textures in Gorgeous Grape. This useful set of background bits first appeared in 2018-19 Annual Catalogue and is also still current.

The sentiment is from yet another set from the 2018-19 Catalogue, Varied Vases, and it too is still current.

The beautifully textured white card makes use of a new embossing folder Bricks & Mortar from the current catalogue. I love the uneven texture of the bricks - just like an old wall.

You can see what the rest of the design team at Retro Rubber have done here and you can also enter our challenge there.

  1. This is so lovely with that added color and texture above the tulips! I love the simple sentiment panel and how you placed it too! Great use of some wonderful older stamps!
