Retro Rubber Challenge #113.. Anything Goes...


Welcome to another fun Retro Rubber challenge.

The theme this time is everyone's fave -

I thought this was a great opportunity to bring out a set by CAS-ual Friday 'Ka-boom' (no longer available) that I have had since 2016 and to be honest it has had barely any use.

I also decided to use a fun technique that involves Pearl-ex powders (Perfect Pearls are the same). First I die-cut my black panel to size, then I dusted over part of the black panel using an embossing powder tool thingy (technical term).

Then I stamped the sentiment and the bomb from the set using embossing ink and dusted the gold Pearl-ex powder over the top to get that gorgeous shimmery gold stamping you see.

I tried to explain the steps here, but it kept sounding super complicated and it really isn't. I love this tutorial if you are interested.

I really like the look you get when using Pearl-ex or Perfect Pearls powders, give it a go if you have some of these.

Can't wait to see what you choose to make, also don't forget to pop over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things the DT have made.

Challenge ends June 28th.

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.
