Retro Rubber Challenge Blog - Picture Inspiration #98

Tuesday, October 23, 2018

Hello everyone!

I am here with Retro Rubber Challenge blog and we have a new challenge, which is an inspirational photo "harvest time". This is my favorite time of year, I love the fall colors of oranges, yellows,  greens and browns. How about you? I saw the sunflowers on the inspirational photo and just had to use this sunflower die that I have had for a while in my stash. That's the fun thing about playing along with Retro Rubber is that you get to use all of your old stamps older than a year.

The stamp set I used is from Hero Arts called "Layering Graphic Flowers" which was released sometime in February 2016. 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 inspirational photo for your inspiration. Have fun with this challenge, I cannot wait to see your take on it.

Here is my take on the challenge.

My card is an A2 card, I die cut the sunflower die three times and glued them together.  I used some distress ink on the background and stamped the sentiment in dark brown ink.

Are you ready to play along? Be sure to stop over on the Retro Rubber Challenge blog to get some more inspiration! Thank you for stopping by, you have until November 2nd to join the fun!
