Retro Rubber Challenge Blog - Color Challenge

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Hello everyone!

Can you believe it is almost Christmas?  Are you all ready?  I know I am not.  I am here with another fun challenge with Retro Rubber's Challenge Blog, which is a photo color inspirational challenge.  To join the challenge, simply use a stamp one year old or older and the theme below. It's so much fun to join Retro Rubber's challenges. Don't forget to stop by the blog and see all the other design teams creations. 

Here is my card.....

I am using an old stamp I had in my stash, it is a stamp by Hero Arts which is a 3x4 wooden stamp called Joy Burst.  I believe it was released around December 2014.  There are so many different things you could create with this stamp.  I embossed the image with red embossing powder and then stamped the image again on some design paper and fuzzy cut it out and adhered it to my image.  I love the green and red colors together.  

I hope you have been inspired by my card to join the challenge. You have until December 16th to hop on over to Retro Rubber to join the challenge. Remember to use a stamp over a year old and make sure you tell us how old it is. I cannot wait to see your creation! For more inspiration, please stop over at Retro Rubber to see what the design team members have created!
