Retro Rubber 119 - Design Team Card

Welcome to the latest challenge at Retro Rubber, the site that gives you a reason to get out your old favourites. This week, we have a colour challenge for you. In New Zealand, we're heading into Spring but these autumnal colours are lovely any time of the year to me.

As always with Retro Rubber, the rules are simple. Use at least one stamp that's a year or more old, give us the approximate age of it, and don't link up to more than ten challenges.

The graphic put me in mind of one of my favourite sets from the 2017-18 Annual Catalogue, Colourful Seasons. I took the solid leaf stamp from it and stamped it onto watercolour paper. Then I wet the paper to get the ink moving a little bit which has given the images a soft, watercoloured look.

The sentiment is from A Big Thank You, which is still current, but premiered in the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue.

Why not pop over to the Retro Rubber Challenge blog, have a look at what the rest of the team have done with these colours and then join in with us?

If you live in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, I'd love to be yours. I can help you with ideas, get you catalogues and provide you with Stampin' Up products. You can leave a message in the comments or contact me using any of the methods listed in the Contact Me tab at the top of the page. You can shop with me from anywhere in New Zealand by clicking on the SHOP NOW button in the sidebar or clicking on any of products below.
