It's time for another fun challenge over at Retro Rubber.
This theme asks you use a critter -
I love this theme, I have WAY too many critter stamps..I can't resist them..
Now get ready because I am going to show you how I made this card, end to end, so there are a few photos;)
I made this card for my Ma for her birthday, not only did I dig out older stamps (Mama Elephant Three Amigos from July 2015), but I also dug out an ancient folding tag card blank - I bought this from the Little Claire stand at a craft fair I went to with JT in 2012!!
I started by adding texture paste to my card through a Tim Holz 'scribbles' stencil, which I swear looks like roses -
Next put the stencil back over the paste and add 2 colours of distress ink over it (once dry) -
Then stamp, colour, die-cut and stamp the critters and add them along with the ribbon to the card..stamping before mounting onto the card is best (yes a few critters were lost..) -
Pretty cool right? The little patterned paper piece that the card is balanced on is actually the custom envelope I made for the card using my Martha Stewart scoring board.
Here is the final panel -
Seems complicated, but it was super easy to do, partly because the card blank was already cut to size and shape...
Show us your critter makes, but first go over to Retro Rubber and view the great makes by my teammates.
Challenge ends on September 9th. 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.
p.s As of the 3rd of Sept I will be in Mexico, so the fabulous RR ladies will be commenting and voting for me :)
