Retro Rubber Sketch Challenge #6...

It’s Tuesday so it must be time for the Retro Rubber Challenge!  This is a fun sketch so be sure to try your hand at it!  See all of the card challenge rules and link up HERE!

Today’s card is one that I don’t do very often – I would term it “shabby chic” – or as “shabby chic” as I get!  When I first saw the sketch I knew I wanted to use my postcard stamp.  While I was digging that stamp out, I found my SU! script stamp.  I bought the script stamp from a fellow stamper.  She was cleaning out a bunch of her old large wood stamps a couple of years ago.  Lucky me!

Www.seejanestamp.com 1 (640x503)I inked up both stamps and went to town.  I stamped the postcard first.  Then masked off most of the image with post it notes and stamped the script letting the left side stamp clearer than the right.  I used my postage due stamps and the postage punch to make my stamps.  I added a layer of embossed cream cardstock using the pretty print embossing folder.  I inked and distressed the edges of both layers trying to add to the shabbiness of the card.  A bit of lace and a lot of pearls finished off the card.

Www.seejanestamp.com 2 (640x425)I love how this turned out.  I only used one ink and lots of texture with the distress tool and embossing folder. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to play along with the Retro Rubber sketch challenge.  Click HERE to head over to the Retro site!

Jane, I too don't do "shabby chic" very often. You did a fabulous job with ink and texture! Lovely card!
