It's time for another superb challenge over at Retro Rubber.
As it is close to 4th of July, we are getting a bit patriotic with our theme -
I thought I had made the perfect card for this challenge and then the next morning I came back and thought - ugh..what a mess. LOL.
So back to the drawing board, pretty pleased with the final card, even if I do say so myself!
I used a great Hampton Arts Hexagon stamp that JT gave me as part of the Thanksgiving $20 challenge in 2014 - I love this stamp and I use it a lot for mixed media makes.
I inked up the stamp (it's pretty big) in red distress ink, spritzed it with water and then laid my paper on top of the stamp. I got a pretty clean and centered impression, so decided to stick with the white border.
I punched some hexagons in Navy blue scrap paper and stapled them together to create a kind of border. I used foam tape to pop the border up a bit.
The celebrate die is so gorgeous, I wish I used it more, but celebrate is a tricky sentiment in my opinion.
It looks great here in white, it really pops against the blue hexagon border.
Your turn to show us your interpretation of the colours, but first go over to Retro Rubber and view the great makes by my teammates.
Challenge ends on July 1st. Don't forget to use a stamp a year or older and tell us about it that's part of the fun. Also, please limit your entries to 10 challenges including ours.
