It's time for another fun challenge over at Retro Rubber.
This theme is all about combining your older stamps with colours...
Neutral to us means, black, brown, kraft, white and cream.
I needed to make an Engagement card for friends and I thought the colours would be really nice and modern to use for an Engagement card.
I used Distress inks to create the watercolour / marbled background - Twisted Citron and Broken China. I smooshed them onto my craft mat, spritzed with water and dipped my paper in and out until I got the colour mix I wanted. Then I took a paint brush and flicked some of the Broken China over the card.
As you probably know by now I LOVE to heat emboss onto vellum and I thought it would look lovely here. I used a Simon Says Stamp 'Congratulations' stamp from the set of the same name that I have had for just over a year.
Vellum is a pain to affix to projects and normally I use staples, but that didn't feel right here. So I fussy cut it out and ran it through my Xyron, this was an experiment so I am totally chuffed to bits at the end result! I love it..
A little sprinkle of lime and aqua bling to finish it off.
So, now it's 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 August 12th. 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.
