Retro Rubber #184 - Far out...it's the 70's..


Welcome to another fun Retro Rubber challenge.

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

I love this theme, fun to use a different set of colours. I went with ALL of the colours in my blending. I used distress oxides and I think it came out pretty well.

I recently reorganised my stencils and I came across this fab one by Andy Skinner 'Hippy Chick' that I had forgotten about and I thought she would be perfect for a 70's theme.

Whilst I had the stencil still taped down, I stamped a bunch of fun sentiments and icons over my blending. These are by -

Jillibean Soup - Fabulous (owned since 2018)
Lawn Fawn - Heart Swatch (owned since 2017)
CraftSmart - Tiny Mixed Sentiments (owned since 2020)

As you can see one of my sentiments overhangs the stenciling, this was intentional and adds a fun detail I think. I made a bunch of these cards, they made me so happy and I tried different colour combos too. I really love how they look in the mini slim format.

How will you use the colours? Pop over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things the DT have made.

Challenge ends June 17th.

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.
