Hi everyone, I was so excited to be asked to play along as a guest designer at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.I have a lot of stamps that fit their criteria for playing along, that is, more than one year old. So it's great to rediscover some old goodies in my stash!
I hope you get the chance to play along.
The theme for this challenge is life's a beach.
I went with my favourite thing to do at the beach, which is looking for interesting driftwood and seashells! I'm not a swimmer lol.
The driftwood background is part of the woodgrain stamp by Darkroom Door (2012). I've had it for years and usually use it to cover a card front like this card. For this panel I stamped embossed and inked with distress inks. Then I cut a couple of the "planks"out and distressed the edges with an edge tool. I layered them onto a scrap of black card.
The seashells and starfish are diecut from white and cream card and coloured with distress inks, chameleon pens, and then rubbed with platinum and champagne inka gold to give them some shimmer.
Here's a closer look.
The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set that I've also had for ages, Find Joy (2013).
I know that in many places cool thoughts would be great at the moment, but over here a bit of warmth wouldn't go astray lol!
I'm linking up to these challenges:
