Retro Rubber Challenge #46

Good morning! We have a new challenge over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog and it’s all about critters!! Here is the inspiration for the challenge 


Here is what I created 


I choose Taken With Teal for my card base and then added layers of white and black. For the main layer I started with a piece of Whisper White and sponged with Taken Teal ink darkest on the outside layer to lighter towards the center. I then stamped all the images and sentiment from the SU set Wetlands that was released in 2013.  To finish I added a piece of ribbon around the left side of the black and main layer.  Super easy card to make!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have time to play along with us for this challenge. 

Until next time

Happy crafting 🙂

Retro Rubber Challenge #45 - Sketch

Here is what I created

Oh Whale

I decided to use a SU set called Oh Whale from 2013. I started with a Buckaroo Blue card base and then added a piece of Whisper White that I sponged the top half with YoYo Yellow (masking off the sun) and bottom half with Buckaroo Blue. I then took a strip of white and stamped the waves and distressed in blue ink then added to the center of the sponged layer. Next I stamped and die cut the whale and tucked him in behind the waves and stamped the hearts in red. To finish I stamped the sentiment on white and using the Word Window punched it out and added to my card using dimensionals.

I had forgotten how fun this set was to play with!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you can play along with us for this challenge.

Until next time

I decided to use one of my Unity stamps.

Keep It Simple

I started with a Pacific Point card base and then added a layer of Lucky Limeaid.  I then took a piece of Whisper White and stamped my image and colored in with my copic markers.  Next I used some wink of Stella pens and flicked them on to create a splatter effect. To finish I stamped the sentiment using Stazon black ink.

Hula Anya

I started with a Tangelo Twist card base.  For the next layer I used a piece of Whisper White and I sponged the blue sky in using Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass distress ink.  I die cut the sun and clouds with the Lawn Fawn Spring Showers set and distressed with inks and then added to my card. Next I took a piece of whisper white and and free hand cut it into the shape of hills and sponged with SU Certainly Celery and Old Olive and then added this piece to my card front.  To finish I stamped Hula Anya from The Greeting Farm (2009) on white Cardstock and colored in using my copics and then fussy cut her and added her to my card.
