Retro Rubber Challenge #81.. Sketchy for you..


Welcome to another fun Retro Rubber challenge.

We have a sketch for you this time, created by me!

You know how much I love a sketch, so it was a lot of fun for me to create a few for the Retro Rubber challenge, I was super pleased when Jane asked.

I decided to rotate the sketch, as I really wanted to use the awesome 'Celeste' stamp by Art Impressions - I love their humor.

I coloured the stamp using Distress Inks with a paintbrush and a Nuvo glitter pen. The stamp is quite big so I had to break out a large circle die and a A5 (A7us?) card.
I took a really deep breath and used a big piece of the purple leopard paper that I have had for ages and I ration it, but 2018 is the year of use it, so...

The sentiment came with the stamp set and it always makes me smile.

Now it's your turn to show us your interpretation of the sketch and pop over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things the DT have made.

Challenge ends March 9th.

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.



  1. Oh, Claire, your cards never cease to bring a big grin to my face!! This is perfect for YOUR sketch! :D Your cards always make me realize that I need more funny stamps!! LOL

  2. This is a hilarious card! Too much fun to not share with others. Great job on the coloring, the leopard print top along with purple pants, shoes, and accessories is exactly how I would imagine this character!

  3. Haha!!! the ladies from Art Impressions always, always make me laugh, they have the wittiest of sentiments to convey their messages just right.
    Love this fab gal, she is so flashy with that leopard print blouse!!
    Awesome and fun card teammie.

  4. She's a great stamp and I agree with the sentiment entirely - and have begun practising! Love your sketch - it's got so many possibilities while still giving a good starting point. And go purple leopard print!

  5. ROLF, I love your card! The sentiment is just perfect...I have a couple of the Art Impression stamps, I love these ladies. Great colors too.
