Retro Rubber Color Challenge...

Welcome to the Retro Rubber Color Challenge!  We were tasked with using the colors brown, green, and cream.  Perfect fall colors. 

I dug out my one and only “official” thanksgiving stamp that I have had for a few years.  I found this stamp in one of my favorite stores in a small town where I used to live.  It was one of those stores that was chalk full of crafty stuff, cards, material, patterns, you name it.  They also took in gently used rubber stamps.  So I snapped this one up and have kept it ever since. 3

I stamped the image using Stazon black ink on watercolor paper. I used my SU! watercolor crayons and a blender pen to color the image.  This little turkey is so cute!  Then I went a little crazy with the stitched look.  I used Lil Inker stitched dies to cut the circle, the scallop border and the quilt pattern on the card.  A little twine and some pearls finished the card. 4 1

Dig out your old stamps and play along with us!  It’s easy peasy!  Just follow the colors and link up your crafty creation for a chance to win!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies:  CS: SU! crumbcake, garden green, watercolor paper.  Dies:  Lil Inkers – stitched circles, stitched scallop, and quilted stitched pattern.  Other:  Stazon black ink, watercolor crayons, linen thread and pearls.
