Retro Rubber #47...Anything Goes...


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

I just got back from Mexico and so my fingers are itching to play at my desk...

This time we have a fave theme for everyone - Anything Goes..

No restrictions (bar using an older stamp..), just let your imagination and your stash run riot..

I dug out an old fave stamp of mine - Venetian Summer by Penny Black. I have had it since 2013 and I used to use it a lot more..

I normally colour her with distress inks, but I opted for Promarkers this time. I love colouring her to be more vibrant than the background, so she really pops out.

I used a mix of sentiment stamps by Jillibean Soup (2016) and Wplus9 (2014)..add a lime green enamel dot and I ended up with a bright fun card.

Link up and show us your fab Anything Goes make, but first go over to Retro Rubber and view the great makes by my teammates.

Challenge ends on September 23rd. 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.
