RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE BLOG #167 - Sketch

Tuesday, September 14, 2021

Hello everyone!

I am here with Retro Rubber Challenge blog and we have a new challenge, which is a sketch. I love sketch challenges. 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 sketch challenge. The stamp set I am using is created by Penny Black called Harvest Wishes. It was released in September 2020.

My card is an A2 card, I used some design paper from my stash, I stamped the bold image and colored it with copics, then stamped and fuzzy cut the sentiment.  I finished off the card by adding enamel dots from my stash.
