Retro Rubber #26...Lets get our sketch on...


It is time for another awesome challenge over at Retro Rubber.

Ooh goody a sketch..Don't you just love a sketch.

I do, they have so many possibilities.

I decided to dig out an old set by Penny Black - I've had it about 2 years..I use the set a lot, but I never really use the car stamp.

I have this fun set of stamps that I have had for about 18mths by Bo Bunny, its called in stitches and has all these great long stitched stamps. I used one for my border.

I coloured the main stamp using Promarkers and added some buttons to finish off my card. I love these buttons, they are glittery and I got them from my fave market at home in London.

Your turn now to show us your takes on the sketch - link up over at Retro Rubber whilst checking out the great creations from the ladies.

Don't forget to use a stamp a year or older and tell us about it. Challenge ends on Nov. 6th



  1. This is an awesome image and a great sketch - I definitely want to play along! The border stamp is ace, I thought you'd actually stitched that. Really nicely done my friend x

  2. Claire, this card is great! I love that car! And the border stamp is really cool! Totally thought it was stitched as well.

  3. I just love this car stamp! The stitching stamp is going on my shopping list! What a lovely way to add a border to your card.

  4. Claire, love this car stamp! What fun! And the stitches are so realistic. Thanks for stopping by my studio....glad you liked my card. Hugs!

  5. Claire, this is such a fun card. Love the old car and particularly the scarf on the driver's head... so hollywood... As for your border, I initially thought you marked each little stitch by hand... having a stamp to do it for you is totally awesome. Love it.

  6. LOVE this stamp! This is so me riding in the car, scarf streaming in the wind like some 50's movie. Ok - so it isn't me! But I will envision you instead! This card just makes me happy! Beautifully done!

    1. Oh Jane I had to reply.. You always make me smile.. What you can't see is me / you on the other side Thelma and Louise style..

  7. What a fun card Claire, it just makes you smile to look at it! I love the stitching you used to frame it.

  8. I neeeeed that stamp! Super cute card! Love it so much! <3
