Happy Valentine's Day to you!
Time for another fun challenge with the Retro Rubber team.
This time we have a theme for you..
Birthday, everyone's fave..
I decided it was time to break out an old (slightly neglected) fave by Avery Elle 'Hipster-Potamus' I have had this set since 2014 and I use to over use it.
I thought I'd use creative license and make my Hippo a pale Lilac..no idea why, just felt like it.
I stamped the Birdie from the set on his back and added glasses too, then fussy cut it all out.
The background paper is a recent addition to my stash from Pink Fresh Studio, I bought a grab box and got a ton of stuff.
The quirky borders were die-cut using Sizzix border dies that JT bought me, I thought if I affixed them with staples it would be more fun. The fact that the borders overhang is a happy accident..I was planning on cutting them down, but I like them like this way better.
The sentiment is also from the set and I stamped it on white paper first and placed it all over my card, trying to work out where I liked it best..this is a new trick of mine so I don't make a mistake..
Your turn to show us your Birthday inspired makes. Make sure you go over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things my teammates have made..
Challenge ends February 24th. 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.
