Colourful Seasons for Retro Rubber 123 - Design Team Card

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber. It's one that everyone seems to enjoy - Anything Goes.
Of course, since this is Retro Rubber, the standard rules still apply: you must use at least one stamp that's a year or more old AND give us an approximate age for it.

This card uses not one but three older sets. One of the pleasures of getting them out after a break is that you can mix them up with new products. So while the sets are all older, this is the first time I've used the new Stampin' Up! Pigment Sprinkles. I'm loving the intensity of the colours, the ease with which they mix and bloom and the great little sprinkle pots (with lids) that they come in.

The gold embossed leaves come from Colourful Seasons, one of my favourite sets from the 2017 Annual Catalogue. The background for them is from Artisan Textures (AC 2018). I use this set a lot but I love these two stamps because they remind me of rain drops. I've used a mix of Mossy Meadow and Golden Glitz. Golden Glitz is one of the stars of the 2019 Holiday Catalogue: a gold pigment ink that stamps with great shine and coverage so you have to look twice to check it's not embossing. I like the informality of the 'Thanks' from A Big Thank You. (AC 2018)
