Retro Rubber Challenge Blog #65 - Sketch Challenge

Tuesday, June 20, 2017


Hello everyone!


I am here with Retro Rubber Challenge Blog and we have a sketch challenge.   I hope you can join us, just make sure the stamp set is over a year old.   If we feel you are using newer stamps, you may be disqualified from the challenge without notification.  For more details on the rules, you can find them over on Retro Rubber Challenge blog.  I hope you can join in with the challenge, please be sure to stop over at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog to see what the design team has created, I am sure you will be inspired.

Here is my take on the sketch.  I am using the Impression Obsession rubber stamp called Bird on a Branch released in January 2016.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up called A Dozen Thoughts which was released in June 2013.



Thanks again for stopping by, please don't forget to stop over at the Retro Rubber Challenge blog and join the fun and check out the beautiful projects the design team members have created. You have until June 30th to join in on the fun!

  1. Hello Donna: Your card is so beautiful, I can never get those solid stamps to give me a perfect image like in your card, the sky you created is gorgeous and it really makes this beautiful bird silhouette pop.
    Thank you for your comment on my Chinese Lanterns, you spelled my name wrong, it's Maria, not Neva, LOL!!
    This mix up happened to me just this morning, I was commenting on a card at The Flower Challenge, which is one of my other DT challenge blogs and I told the lady "thank you for sharing your card with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, which also is another of my 3 DT challenge blogs.
    No worries my dear, just struck me funny.
    Hugs,
    Maria. (not Neva, ha ha!!!)

    3. Maria, I hardly ever stamp without my Misti! And I used black versatile ink.

  2. This is so incredibly gorgeous! Love the background you've created for these bold birds and the twine... just wonderful. I'm interested to hear that you use the MISTI all the time. I usually forget that i have one! Fabulous, is all I can say about this card, except maybe - double fabulous!

  3. This card is gorgeous, Donna! I love your background with the twine dividing the "panels". I use my MISTI with my solid stamp images also... even then it can be difficult! Off to pin, my friend!!

  4. You had me immediately with those precious birds! And the sponging to highlight them ever so lightly was the perfect touch. Love your linen bow with that beautiful sentiment. Stunning card, my friend!!

  6. Hey Donna, I am in love with your perfect blending, wonderful card. I love the birdies. I agree, never stamp solid images without the MISTI - it has improved the quality of my work so much. Cx
