Retro Rubber #45..Get your sketch on...


It's time for another cool challenge over at Retro Rubber

I'm pretty pleased and humbled as my teammates selected my sketch for our latest sketch challenge - 

I'm a big fan of a sketch challenge, I like having a 'form' to follow and my imagination goes wild with a teeny bit of structure :)

I decided to use another great Simon Says Stamp cardkit, this time from July 2015. I used the sentiments, waves and boat from the stamp set. 

I stamped the waves using Blue Breeze Kaleidacolor ink - if you haven't used these yet, you have to try them, they are awesome. I fussy cut the waves to create the central border. I used the Kaleidacolor ink again for both sentiments - the stitched circle die is by Simon Says Stamp and the label punch is by Stampin Up.

I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the boat to work as the 'star' part of the sketch.

I am super pleased with how it came out, the waves are a big win, I can't stop looking at them :)

Your turn to show us your interpretation of the sketch, but first go over to Retro Rubber and view the great makes by my teammates.

Challenge ends on August 26th. 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.
