Retro Rubber Challenge Blog #92 - Beach Theme

Tuesday, July 31, 2018

Hello everyone!

I am here with Retro Rubber Challenge blog and we have a new challenge, which is an inspiration photo of the beach!  How fun is this?  I hope you all are enjoying your summer, I can't believe it is already the end of the month.

If you have not joined our challenges before, the rules are very simple, just use a stamp older than a year and you must include the age (or approximate age) of the stamp in your blog post. Here is the sketch for you to use. I cannot wait to see you take on it.

Here is my take on the challenge. My card is an A2 card, I am using the stamp set by Gina K. Designs illustrator is Theresa Momber which is called Framescapes Tropical Skies released on July 10, 2017 the sentiment is from the stamp set called My Island, illustrator is Claire Brennan which was released July 2016.  I used some purple tap to separate the water and sand and used a blending tool to add the ink.  I then stamped the frame with the trees, added the sun and the people holding hand and finished my card off by adding the sentiment.  If you are interested in these sets the links are at the bottom of this email.

Are you ready to play along? Be sure to stop over on the Retro Rubber Challenge blog to get some more inspiration, the design team has some wonderful creations! Thank you for stopping by, you have until August 10th to join the fun!
