Retro Rubber Challenge #138 Anything Goes..


Welcome to another fun Retro Rubber challenge.

It is time for everyone's fave - anything goes!

This was the perfect time to combine old with new!

I started with a new Visible Image butterfly stencil (Butterfly Ink) and I blended Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmelade distress oxides through the stencil. Then keeping the stencil in place I stamped over the blending using a great Bo Bunny text stamp from their 'It is Written' set - I bought this set in 2014 shortly after I'd moved to the US and discovered I could get cheap stamps occasionally from TJMaxx!!

I heat embossed the giant friend from Mama Elephant's 'Friend Indeed' set, I've had this sent since 2015 and it gets a lot of use.

I built the rest of the sentiment using stickers.

I love the combo of old and new, making all parts of my stash work hard!

I can't wait to see what anything goes means for you, don't forget to pop over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things the DT have made.

Challenge ends July 10th.

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. Love how you used the butterfly stencil with the stamps. Thanks for having me as a guest designer at Retro Rubber,
