Recently I happened upon a challenge called Retro Rubber. Have you heard of it? The idea is to use a stamp that’s a year or more old. Well, I have lots of those and I love to use them so, even though I’ve been diligently working on the not yet used stuff, I decided to play along today. My retro stamp is Kerr Jar and Berries by Embossing Arts, dated 1999. It was long about that time I ordered it from an Embossing Arts catalog.
I watercolored with a few Stampin’ Up! inks on 140 lb hot press watercolor paper. The current Retro Rubber Challenge #37 calls for this sketch:
I’m also playing along in the Just Us Girls Challenge at Cards In Envy. Cards must be flat enough to fit in an envelope and the current challenge calls for girly or feminine cards. I removed the center from my flower and replaced it with a linen thread bow so it would be non-lumpy and very easy to mail.
That’s it for me! Have a happy day!
