Guess what, y'all? A while back, my Beach Wedding card was the top pick over at Retro Rubber Challenges, and they asked me to be a guest designer for them! Wheeeeee! So here's the new Retro Rubber Challenge:
How pretty is that picture?! So for my color inspiration, I went with the long-retired Green Galore, a bit of Daffodil Delight, and some Real Red, and came up with this:
Since this is a Retro Rubber card, I've had Petal Prints since 2006 so it's nice and really retro; Yippee-Skippee! is a bit newer and is 3 years old. The background technique is an old favorite, polished stone with Green Galore and Daffodil Delight ink refills, and then the doily is actually a metallic gold one that I turned over and sponged with Daffodil Delight ink. For the flower, I inked it up with markers, then misted it with a bit of water to make the colors bleed just a little bit, which helped blend the yellow and red ink on the flower. I dug some retired Real Red taffeta out of my ribbon stash to finish it off, along with a silver metallic enamel shape on the flower.
So hop on over to Retro Rubber and have a look at some beautiful cards, then give this color inspiration challenge a shot yourself. It's fun, I promise! Cheers, y'all!
