Blossoms in Bloom for Retro Rubber 159

 This week at Retro Rubber Challenge, it's Anything Goes week. Of course, since this is Retro Rubber, it's not quite anything goes. You still must use at least one stamp that's more than a year old and give us an approximate age for it.

Anything Goes can be a problem for me - too many choices. So in looking around my craft room, I saw a card sent to me last year by my then Artisan Team mate, Leah Fedynak. It uses the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set and Many Layered Blooms dies from the 2020-21 Annual Catalogue.

I loved it and decided to CASE it. If I was making this card, what would I do that was different?

Here's my version...

I watercoloured a whole rainbow of colours and cut the top layer of the flower die from it. Unlike Leah, I used both layers of the die and glued them together, then glued them to the base, embossed with Tasteful Textiles. I did not use staples, sequins or silver metallic thread and I used, as I often do, one angled end for the sentiment. 

Thank you, Leah, for such a great card and for the inspiration to make my own version of it.

  1. Love your rainbow blended floral diecut Jan - perfect for Pride Month! I haven't used this set for a while but must put that right! Looks great with the textured panel too.
