Retro Rubber Challenge #136 Summer Theme...


Welcome to another fun Retro Rubber challenge.

We have a fun summer theme for you this time!

I loved this theme, as it meant I got to break out one of my all-time fave stamp sets! This set always reminds me of trips to the fishmonger with my Nana when I was little to choose a Crab and I would say to her that the Crabs were smiling at me.

I masked off a circle and used the awesome Palm Tree stencil by GRS Stencils with some Twisted Citron Distress ink to create a little backdrop for my Crab.

The Crab and the sentiment are by Your Next Stamp from their Flippin' Fabulous set, that I have had since 2016. I love this Crab he is so funny and such a delight to colour.

I couldn't resist adding googly eyes to the Crab!

What Summer project will you be inspired to make? Don't forget to pop over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things the DT have made.

Challenge ends June 12th.

  1. Ahhh this is so sweet, what a cute card, I love his wee googly eyes. Hope all is well with you, Love Hazelxx

  2. Super! I love the way you've masked off and created a circular background for this crab and his.... jandals. Kiwi word of the day. :-)

  3. Ohh!! I adore this little crab holding those flip flops, I doubt he'll be wearing them any time soon, LOL!!
    Love the stenciled background, beautifully done.
