Retro Rubber Challenge #91

I have been having such fun just experimenting with techniques and color combinations for my Distress Oxide inks. When I saw the sketch challenge over on Retro Rubber challenge, I just had to use one of these wonderful backgrounds that came out of my playing around with inks. Here are the results:


Two of the stamps I used were older ones in my collection that I used. One was the little swirly vine from SU and the other one is the sentiment from Sweet and Sassy. I have had both of them for over a year or more. The SU stamp may have seen ink for the first time on this card, while the sentiment from Sweet and Sassy comes from one of my old favorties from them. I use it quite often because they long and narrow and work into my spaces on cards well.

I used 3 old stamps from my stash: Sweet Summer, which was an old Sale-a Bration stamp from SU, an old itty Bitty bg stamp (which are the ink dots) from SU from 2002. I also used this sentiment stamp from Sweet and Sassy Stamps from probaby about 4 years back. I also used an old border punch from Martha Stewart.
