RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE BLOG #122 - Sketch

Tuesday, October 22, 2019

Hello everyone!

I am here with Retro Rubber Challenge blog and we have a new challenge, which is a sketch by our very own team member Claire Grantham.  I love the sketch, I probably will be using this one again.  I hope you enjoy creating something with this sketch.  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. I cannot wait to see you take on it.




Here is my take on the challenge. The stamp set I am using is created by Pickett Fence Studios called "I am a Mermaid" it was released in March 2018.  The sentiment is from Pickett Fence Studios "Little Coral Girl" which was released in February 2018.

My card is an A2 card, I used an embossing folder for my background, I stamped and colored the image with copics.  I love how this one turned out.

Rinea - Peacock Frame

Friday, October 4, 2019

Hello everyone!

I am here with Rinea with a cute frame that I created using the peacock as the vocal image. To create the peacock I had to cut many layers. The background I used the Rinea Violet/Gold Glossy Solid Foiled Pack. The layers on the peacock are Rinea Sapphire/Gold Glossy Solid Foiled Pack, Rinea Lavendar/Gold Glossy and Solid Foiled Pack, Rinea Blush Gold Glossy Solid Foiled Pack.


Here is how I put my frame together:

1. The frame is a 6x6 frame with a 5x5 opening,

2. I cut a piece of the Rinea Violet/Gold Glossy Solid Foiled  paper to 5x5, I used a stencil I had with peacock feathers and ran it through my die cutting machine  I die cut the pieces of the peacock and used liquid glue to put it together.  I then adhered the peacock in the center of the frame.  After everything was dried I added the glass to the frame.

Here is a closer look:
