Retro Rubber Challenge #55...Hearts...
Time for another great challenge with the Retro Rubber team.
This time we have a theme for you..
I decided instantly that I wanted to use my Lawn Fawn 'Wheelie Like You' set (I've had it since 2015)and have a Valentine feel to my card, so I stamped, coloured and die-cut that first.
Then I decided to create a resist panel for the background. I stamped the hearts (by Simon Says Stamp from the Feb 2015 Card Kit) in white embossing powder, heated it and then applied picked raspberry distress ink over the top of it, using an aquabrush.
I have to be honest and say I was pretty darn pleased with the background, it came out even better than I expected :)
I thought it looked a bit flat against my card (originally white) so I added two strips of glitter paper and went with a red card blank - instant upgrade!
Your turn to show us your Valentine's makes - complete with hearts.. go over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things my teammates have made..
Challenge ends February 10th. Don't forget to tell us the age of your stamp, that is part of the fun of our challenge and please only enter 10 challenges including Retro Rubber.
