I am so excited to tell you that I have been invited to be a Guest Designer at The Retro Rubber Challenge. Follow the link to play along.
The challenge is a Red, White and Blue color challenge.
Here is my card:
The colors are Stampin' Up!'s Night of Navy and Real Red on Whisper White.
The stamp is SU's Medallion from 2009. The sentiment is from a Sale-A-Bration set called Feeling Sentimental from 2013.
The card is a 5" X 5" so that I could use the whole image. Back in the day when I first bought this stamp, I would stamp a portion of the image on a regular A2 card size. In those I did not want to take the time to create an envelope for a card that would accommodate the whole image.
But, nowadays, we have the Envelope Punch Board that cranks out a custom sized envelope in no time flat.
I stamped the image on white then distressed the edges. Next, I used my aqua painter, inked up the brush with Real Red, squeezed out enough water to make the brush very wet, and then used my finger to flick the bristles of the brush to make the splashes of red. Be prepared to have a red tip on your index finger for the rest of the day. I did the same for the sentiment.
I colored a Basic Pearl with a Red Sharpie for the center of the medallion.
Now, take a peek at your retro stamps and play along!
