Retro Rubber #90.. Colour Challenge, Red, White & Blue


Welcome to another fun Retro Rubber challenge.

As it's 4th of July tomorrow, we have a suitable Patriotic theme for you...

I decided not to make an actual 4th of July card, but to use the great Liberty Girl stamp by Unity Stamp Co to make a fun card for an American friend! I have had the stamp since 2016 and last year I used it to make 4th of July cards for my friends.

I stamped onto watercolour paper and used distress inks and a paintbrush to colour the image. The sentiment stamp came with the set and I added a little bit of blue bling to her hair.

Super simple, but fun and a bit cheeky!

Let's see what the photo and colours inspire you to make, pop over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things the DT have made.

Challenge ends July 13th.

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.

Have a great 4th of July, Hubby and I are doing some pre-4th marauding...



  1. Woohoo! Naughty but nice! The watercolouring really makes this card fabulous.

  2. I guess you have been in the ole USA long enough and got a fun patriotic stamp!! This one really makes me smile. You're such a hoot! Hope you enjoy celebrating this fun holiday with us!

  3. VAVA BOOM!!! What a fun and fabulous card, put a smile on my face, that's for sure and it will do the same for the lucky recipient.

  4. Oh man this is great fun. Love that stamp, love that sentiment. Love the use of two-tone blues in the stripes. x
